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.

If you haven't found this, go to YouTube.com and look for new monkees or monkees. Sometime earlier this year, March 2006, someone has uploaded lots of New Monkees material, such as videos and unaired pilot episodes. Rare stuff. I had a few episodes myself on aging VHS tapes, but they are not in good as shape as these. Too bad this show really never had a chance. While I much prefer the Monkees, I did enjoy this show in its brief run. I probably saw about half the episodes as during its original run, it would broadcast at late ours like 2:00 AM. I doubt Warner Brothers will ever release it on DVD, so webcasts are the only way to go. The New Monkees CD goes for a mint on Ebay, too. (over $30)
