Trivia

Of the four Monkees, only Peter Tork and Micky Dolenz participated in all 58 episodes. Davy Jones was written out of an episode so he could attend his sister's wedding in England; Michael Nesmith was written out of three episodes; one while he recovered from a tonsillectomy, one when his son ... ...


Quotes

Peter: Hey, look, guys! All the comforts of home!
Mike: Yeah, YOUR home, shotgun, not MINE.


Goofs

In a number of second-season episodes, Micky'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 episode "It's 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.


Crazy Credits

"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.


Alternate Versions

The episode "Too Many Girls" (aka "Davy and Fern") was originally censored (By NBC's Standards and Practices Dept.) showing a blurred lens-view of the scene where Fern is wearing a bikini. In later prints of the episode that were shown in syndication, alternate angles were reportedly used for this same sequence.
