It was televised from 1954 till 1973 and is considered to be the 5th longest-running U.S. primetime television series after The Simpsons, Gunsmoke, Law & Order and Law & Order: Special Victims Unit.

The seven-year-old Timmy Martin appears in Lassie in the fourth season, and he was such a great companion for the dog!

How does he look now?

The role of Timmy was played by the six-year-old Jon Provost, and he really enjoyed that time. During one of his interviews, Jon revealed that Lassie was indeed his best friend.

By the way, it was not his first job on television: Jon was just a three-year-old kid when he was cast as Jane Wyman and Sterling Hayden's son in the film So Big.

Now, he is a 69-year-old man, and looks unrecognizable!
