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 »

Tommy, we will miss you
26 September 2000 | by Zane-05See all my reviews

This is my favorite version of Lassie as well. I watched all the re-runs on the Animal Planet channel until I had seen them all. Tommy Rettig was a talented young actor; it's a shame he passed away. It's too bad they don't make classic TV programs like this one anymore.
