Tony prepares to go on a camping trip with Jeannie. Unfortunately, Doctor Bellows, who also was due to go on vacation, is forced to cancel because he must find a musical group to perform at a charity bazaar that Amanda is in charge of and because of this he forces Tony to cancel his vacation as well and orders him to help him find a group. Not wanting Tony to miss his vacation, Jeannie helps him by getting four non-musicians, including a couple of guys named Tommy Boyce and Bobby Hart, and turning them into musicians. In fact, Jeannie is so successful in turning them into a group that they wind up getting an audition with Phil Spector. Written by Brian Washington <>

Phil Spector, Tommy Boyce and Bobby Hart
22 December 2013 | by (Youngstown,Ohio) – See all my reviews

"Jeannie the Hip Hippie" has Dr. Bellows fearing he may have to cancel his long-awaited vacation because 'The Rolling Waves' were mobbed in Indiana, leaving Mrs. Bellows scrambling to find a band to replace them for her bazaar. Since Tony's vacation is also in danger, Jeannie blinks up four young men to form a group, headed by hit singing-songwriting duo Tommy Boyce and Bobby Hart, just starting out as performers since producing some of The Monkees' most successful songs. The clincher has Barbara Eden doing a decent job on drums for an audition for none other than Phil Spector! Columbia Pictures, Screen Gems, and Colgems Records certainly weren't shy about promoting their artists, and among many references we see are shots of record LPs THE MONKEES (in Hart's hand), THE MONKEES' HEADQUARTERS (behind Hart on the wall), MORE OF THE MONKEES (held by Mrs. Bellows), and hanging on the wall in Spector's office (behind Barbara Eden) we see the 1965 Colpix LP from David Jones, pre-Monkees. Introduced with an instrumental version of "Last Train to Clarksville," Boyce and Hart perform two songs from their first LP, TEST PATTERNS: first, "Girl, I'm Out to Get You," which was not issued as a single, and "Out and About," which became their first top 40 hit, peaking at 39 two months before this broadcast. The duo scored their biggest success the next year with "I Wonder What She's Doing Tonite," going on to add BEWITCHED and THE FLYING NUN to their list of TV credits.
