Common Sense Says
Barkin' good moral-rich classic. But violent, too.

What Parents Need to Know

Parents need to know that while this boy-and-his-dog classic is full of good morals and helpful lessons, there's also tremendous peril that may disturb younger and more sensitive viewers. For instance, two men attack Rowlie, beat him, and kill Toots. Lassie gets shot at and attacked by dogs, and even injures her leg in an escape.
