Storyline

Formulated because of the '80s resurgence of the popular Monkees phenomenon, the New Monkees show saw four teen-ish boys - this time Larry, Jared, Marty, and Dino - sharing a wild & spacious house together as their aspiring band attempted to land a recording deal, and in the meantime kept falling into one crazy situation after another. In keeping with the earlier Monkees format, each episode also featured music videos and silly sketches aimed at its target audience, with material updated appropriately for its decade.

New Monkees were cool
22 April 2008 | by (Iowa City, Iowa) – See all my reviews

I bought the New Monkees cassette in 1987 and liked it. I recall playing it quite often. The problem they had was a ridiculous press and a few loud fans of the old Monkees who somehow got their shorts in a bunch over the New Monkees. For God's sake it's only pop music but you wouldn't know that for all that nonsense that was dished out at the time over the New Monkees. Even Davy Jones complained about the New Monkees. The reality is that the old Monkees and their fans didn't want anyone crowding in on the renewed popularity the old Monkees were having in 86-87.

Anyway, the New Monkees CD is really good pop music. Larry and Marty did a good job on the vocals as well as the song Dino did. Hey it was a fun CD. It's silly that the New Monkees got hassled so much but they left good work behind. That matters.
