  • Another case of animal abuse.

    I really think that this show had some of the cheesiest moments on television ever and that animal abuse was present in every single episode. Lassie and Flipper are probably the two most abused animals in television history because they just can't say no to their owners, all they can do is either flap their tails or face the tears and sadness in their respective owner's faces. The stories are also pretty much the same: Timmy gets in trouble, Lassie finds out telepathically, and then saves him in the last minute only to go back home and eat apple pie with his mother. Don0't get me wrong, it is a nice show if you cant forget about animal rights and extreme cheesyness.moreless
  • Its Doggone good! And In-correct It came on in the 50s!

    THis show was one of the best shows in the whole world! To bad it had to go off air. I wish they could bring it back. Anyway, this show is about a young boy named Timmy and incredebly intellegent collie named Lassie. They had many adventures together including raising rats, training horses, and saving each other. They helped one another in the time of need and made bad times turn into good. Ever heard of the saying, "What is it Lassie? Timmy's in the well?!!" that is one example. Its a shame its off air the actors played their charaters very well. THis show is sutible for children.moreless
  • it's a dog's world

    This show was one of the all time greats. It was clean family airing and family watching. It had adventure and suspense for it's time but without any real violence. It had episodes that for it's time keep you on the edge of your seat on the first time viewing the episodes. It brought a dog as the hero into a show that focused on a small boy and the love for his dog. It showed family values as they were during that time and made good old fashion living a way of the world.moreless
  • 50 years later Lassie is stil Famous.

    Lassie is with out a doubt the most famous dog in Television. People especially children have enjoyed Lassie for over 50 years, and 50 years from now people will still be enjoying Lassie

    This series started as Jeff’s Collie, then went to the more famous Lassie and Timmy, after that era of Lassie ended the show continued, only no longer was Lassie's master, a child, but a Forest Ranger

    Lassie always helped her master’s out of any trouble that they got into, its always fun to see a boy and his faithfully dog. Since most people like dogs and in a sense can related to how much Lassie owners love her and that she is truly their best friend. The stories were often interesting and kept you wanting to watch more. Though the original Lassie is long sense deceased his (since Lassie was always played by a male collie) ancestors continue the Legacy of Lassie.

  • A Show That Will Never Go Off The Air

    Lassie has been on for decades and it looks like it will never stop airing. There looks like there is a relative of Lassie ready to star in another series.

    She came on in the 40's on several successful movies. and then went on to a very 50's TV show. Then there were TV episodes where Lassie was everywhere and was the best show. It really should have not stopped making new episodes in 1974.

    But the show will never go off the air since it's been on for a really long time, and has been making new episodes each decade. It's been on in the 60's, and 70's, and then in the 80's, and again in the 90's.

    Lassie is the best dog on TV. She never says anything, unlike those dogs of today's commercials which talk all the time. It is really lame. They either do voice over, or sing about lions that are actually cats.

    I hope Lassie will be back for a new season or something. Her shows are something everybody can watch.moreless
