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 »

A great series no matter of age
17 January 2005 | by See all my reviews

I've seen this Lassie series a few years ago and now it's being broadcast on a different network in Sweden.

Great acting by all characters, a cute dog and handsome stories contribute to the overall quality of this version. The beautiful surroundings is also a reason why I enjoy watching it, the nature reminds me of Sweden.

There is not much information about the actors on the internet except for Corey which surprises me a bit, maybe it's because it's a Canadian series with non U.S. people involved. I wonder why it didn't take place in Canada when that's where they shot it?

To sum it up, Lassie 1997 is one of those productions I'd have liked to step into in real life....
