I think that there’s something seriously wrong with little Timmy from that show. Seriously, how did the kid survive long enough to actually own a dog?
Also, here’s a disturbing realization I had when drawing this: They actually could make a modern day Lassie show, but it wouldn’t be nearly as entertaining. Lassie was always calling for help and performing menial tasks. You know what else can do that? A smartphone.
Seriously; try replacing “Lassie” with “Siri,” and suddenly the script is modern.
