Trivia:
The show had two chief sponsors: Kellogg's cereals and Yardley Cosmetics of London, and they rotated each week. The Monkees made humorous half-minute sponsor tags for Kellogg's Rice Krispies and Yardley Black Label Aftershave. In 1969, when the show was picked up by CBS, The Monkees (sans by-now departed Peter Tork) were hired to shoot commercials for the series' new sponsor: Kool-Aid.See more »
Goofs:
Continuity: 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.See more »

The original Nutty Boys, 21 January 2000
Author: steve.barry from London, England

Every now and then, on TV, they repeat The Monkees, and when they do, you know you're in for half an hour of lunacy.

I've been to a few staff parties at the places I've worked over the years, and when "Here we come..." blasts out, the dance floor's always packed in seconds.

LONG LIVE THE MONKEES!
