Trivia

The great-great-great-great-great-grandson of 'Pal', and the 8th dog to appear in the Lassie role, Howard, starred in the first 26 episodes but was replaced for 13 episodes in a cost-cutting move with unknown collies that were purchased by a French trainer. Outraged fans waged a campaign to restore a line dog to the series. A new contract was signed but Howard's son Hey Hey II stepped into the role for the last 13 episodes. See more »

Way to go, Lassie!
26 May 2004 | by See all my reviews

This was a really good show; it stayed true to the original series, but updated it in a million subtle ways. The main character was still called Timmy, but Corey Sevier played him as a modern kid who just happened to have a fantastic dog. The rest of the cast was solid too -- Susan Almgren as Mom, Walter Massey as Doc Stewart, Tod Fennel as Timmy's best friend, Nathalie Vansier as --gasp! -- Timmy's girlfriend, and Chip Chiupka as the tenderhearted junkyard guy. There was a lot of humour in the stories; the series dealt with a lot of issues a normal kid would face -- like bullies, school problems, social issues -- but when it did straight dog-adventure stories, it did them with a big wink to the old series. Timmy actually falls in a hole, and Lassie goes for help -- but not in a way you'd ever expect. There were a lot of animal stories -- Timmy's Mom is a vet -- and they usually took some pretty strange twists; a baby goose thought Lassie was its Mom; Timmy and Jeff tried to impress a girl by raising chickens, but Hank's hawk kept killing them; Nathalie lost a boa-constrictor; Timmy and his Mom mistook a bat-infestation for ghosts; and my all time favourite, only Lassie could communicate with the aliens responsible for a series of crop circles!
