The Monkees are asked to appear as extras in Luther Kramm's new beach movie, but soon take offense to the film's star, Frankie Catalina. After upstaging him during the production, Catalina walks off ...
An anthology comedy series featuring a line up of different celebrity guest stars appearing in anywhere from one, two, three, and four short stories or vignettes within an hour about versions of love and romance.
Short-lived comedy about the extremely Beatles-esque band The Monkees. The group of four (Micky, Davy, Mike, and Peter) encounter interesting events and tie in their music with each episode to encompass fast-moving comedic scenes.Written by
Among those who auditioned to be members of the group were Paul Williams (who later wrote "Someday Man" for the group) and Stephen Stills, who showed promise but appeared too old to the producers at his audition. He also lost interest when he learned Screen Gems would demand the publishing rights to his songs. Stills suggested his former roommate, Peter Tork, audition for the group, and Tork was cast.

In a number of second-season episodes, Micky Dolenz's hairstyle changes back and forth from a straight hairdo to a curly "permed" look. This was due to the fact that second-season episodes were filmed at two different times, the spring of 1967 (when a number of the actual episode storylines were filmed) and then later that fall (during which time all the song performances were filmed). During the summer break, Micky let his hair grow out. The difference is perhaps most notable in The Monkees: A Nice Place to Visit, when at one moment Micky is performing a song with his hair curled, and is then seen leaving the stage with his hair straight.

"The Christmas Show" ends with the Monkees giving the TV audience a Christmas wish of peace. The group then brings the crew-members on to the set and gives them all a very happy and raucous opportunity to give their loved ones at home a Christmas greeting, all while the closing credits play over this.

Various episodes when either shown in network reruns (i.e. the CBS run) or in syndication had newer songs replacing older ones on the soundtrack. See more »
This is definitely one of the most influential shows in television history. The show was so funny and at times surreal but you could see that the boys had a lot of fun doing the shows even if they didn't like a lot of the music they were forced to do in the early shows. Speaking of the songs, this show was also a great showcase for many of the greatest songwriting talents of the 60's including Goffin and King, Neil Diamond, Boyce and Hart, John Stewart and Harry Nillson.
