* AndStarring: "Starring Hugh Beaumont, June Lockhart, Jon Provost as Timmy, and, of course, Lassie."
* AnimalsLackAttributes: Lassie is a female dog (note the root of the name is ''Lass'' not ''Lad'') played by males with their belly hair coiffed very carefully to cover up the naughty bits.
** Unbelievably, Lassie even had puppies one season. Don't ask.

* CPRCleanPrettyReliable: In one early episode, Jeff has to do Holger-Nielsen method artificial respiration on a drowning victim. Naturally, being a kids show in the 1950s, the victim lives.

It may be a little hard for [[AllTropersAreYoungNerds modern tropers to really grok]], but this series was a ''big deal'' back in [[TheFifties the day]]. It was on the air at the very dawn of mass-consumption television, and it hit ''exactly'' the perfect note for young baby-boom families of the time. Lassie was one of the first true super-smash television hits, alongside shows like ''LeaveItToBeaver'', that demonstrated just how potent television was as a medium - not just for storytelling, [[CashCowFranchise but for making obscene amounts of money]].
