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 »
Marvellous classic family series of boy plus friends and dog
I love this varied rendition of the classic family tale, Lassie. My son and I used to watch it regularly together on Sunday evenings during his late elementary and middle school years, and we both have fond memories. In this adaptation a vet named Karen Cabot moves back to her Vermont hometown with her young adolescent son, Timmy. There she opens a veterinary clinic and he finds a collie, who becomes the family pet and is named Lassie. The series chronicles the assorted adventures of Timmy, his friends, and his faithful and intelligent dog.
Corey Sevrier is a competent young actor here, wonderful in the role of Timmy Cabot. Timmy also has, in addition to the collie, several well cast human friends, including Jeff and Natalie (a romantic interest). Other characters include Doc Stewart and Hank, an interesting and kind hearted junkyard guy. Of course apart from Timmy, Lassie is the real star of the show.
The series depicts the classic everyday problems of growing up, such as bullies and first love, but also various animal adventures...both the typical Lassie saving the day and also unique stories from Tim's mom's vet practice. I'd certainly give a strong recommendation to this, a really cute and heartwarming family series.
