Not very long running 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 scenes of comedy. Written by
The Monkees officially broke up in 1970, two years after the show was canceled by NBC. Peter Tork had actually left at the end of 1968, using an opt-out clause in their original contract; Michael Nesmith left late in 1969, and had to pay a default of nearly $500,000. After the failure of the "Changes" album (featuring only Micky Dolenz and Davy Jones, standing back-to-back on the cover) Jones announced he was resuming his solo career, and a joke went around that Dolenz would continue on as "The Monkee".

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.

"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.

Something for everyone, the Monkees is still funny and eye-catching today. They exemplified the sixties for a lot of people in my generation and I still love them today. Not only for the nostalgia but just for the fun of it all.
