Trivia

Tommy Rettig wanted to leave the series after three seasons. He was fifteen and did not want to continue playing the role of a child. At the same time, Jan Clayton also wanted to return to musical theatre. Timmy was added to the cast to start a slow transition. But when George Cleveland suddenly died, the change to a new cast was accelerated. See more »

Lassie lives forever but not so little boys
17 March 2002 | by jeffhill1See all my reviews

I grew up with the Tommy Rettig "Lassie" series. Looking back on

it, I would say that I was addicted to that show and that I fantasized

that I was the Jeff who lived with Lassie on the Miller farm, not the

Jeff who lived in New Jersey suburbia with a teddy bear. When George

Cleveland died, the show decided that Tommy Rettig was too old to be

Lassie's boy and the scenario was that since Gramps was dead, they had

to sell the farm and go live in a crummy apartment in Capital City

where Mom would get some miserable job and Jeff would simply go to

school. Mom explained all this to Jeff at the kitchen table, adding

that they couldn't take Lassie to live in some crummy Capital City

apartment, so...... I was ten years old when seeing this unfortunate transition. I

remember it felt like it was my life that was being eviscerated. I

never enjoyed the "Lassie" show much after that.
