Katri Title Japanese
Katri, Girl of the Meadows (Japanese: 牧場の少女カトリ Makiba no Shōjo Katori) is an anime series based on the novel Paimen, Piika Ja Emäntä by Finish author Auni Nuolivaara. The show was produced by Nippon Animation, and aired 49 episodes on Fuji TV from January 8, 1984 to December 23 of the same year.


It's been three years since little Katri's mother left for Germany leaving her daughter behind in Finland, where she now lives with her grandparents. With Finland still under Russian domination, the inhabitants of these lands have had little or no news from the outside and no one knows if little Katri will again see her mother. To make matters worse, things on Katri's grandparents' farm are not going well, the harvest had been a small one, their only cow had been killed by a bear, and the family confronts great monetary problems. Katri wants to help, and finds work in a neighboring farm; for a girl of hardly nine years of age the work of a farm is hard, and tiring even with all of her enthusiasm, and good moods, which is what keeps her standing.




The show is called Nathalie in the Netherlands.
