Based on the famous children book Little Women (Part 1, not including Good Wives!) by Louisa May Alcott this 48 episode anime was produced in 1987 by Nippon Animation for Japanese television Fuji TV. In the time between 11. January 1987 - 27. December 1987 the series was aired on a weekly basis as part of the World Masterpieces Theater (WMT).

Personal comment
This anime is one of the best in the World Masterpieces Theater series. The character design is wonderful (see the Picture Gallery) and the animation so lively and full of joy that it was lots of fun to watch each of the 48 episodes. Though the epsiodes start far earlier than the novel (see also differences) the latter episodes are wonderful and often very close adaptions of the chapters of the original novel. (Closer than any movie could be...)
