It was long rumored that and notorious cult leader and convicted killer Charles Manson auditioned for the group, but that rumor is not true--Manson was serving a sentence in a federal penitentiary at the time the auditions were held.
Oh no, foot prints! Someone else is on this island!
Micky: Oh don't worry, those are ours, we don't have a larger set so we had to use the same one twice.
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 (1967), 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.
The original version of the pilot episode ("Here Come The Monkees") featured Boyce and Hart's versions of that episode's songs, and also contained extra scenes but excluded a few that were in the broadcast version. In addition, the screen tests were used to open the show rather than close it, and the opening and closing credits and theme song were different.
Some of Hollywood's biggest actresses have played Charlie's Angels on the big and small screen - and many more almost landed the parts. Who else almost starred over the years?
