On September 12, 1954, at a time when many Americans had left the countryside for cities and suburbs, Lassie made her television debut, offering viewers a nostalgic look at rural life. Since then, one of the world’s most famous dogs has been welcomed into millions of homes. By performing rescues and other feats, Lassie has become the embodiment of trust, loyalty, and friendship.
In 2009, Lassie was honored on a stamp in the Early TV Memories pane.
