"Alias Micky Dolenz" served as a kind of birthday gift for Micky,
broadcast Mar 6 1967 (no. 25), two days before his 22nd birthday.
Performing double duty as himself and killer gangster 'Baby Face
Morales,' he impersonates the latter to recover some stolen jewels and
catch the entire criminal gang, only to learn the real 'Baby Face' has
escaped and is on their trail. Not as funny as it could have been,
Micky virtually the whole show, with only token support from Peter and
(especially) Mike, since Davy is absent until a cameo at the end. In
one of his last roles, Robert Strauss practically steals his scenes as
the Chief, and Maureen Arthur, from THE TONIGHT SHOW, kisses both
Mickys (for the second straight episode, we even hear the name
'Fingerhead!') Getting its second airing is Nesmith's "The Kind of Girl
I Could Love" (written with Roger Nichols), and getting its fourth is
Nesmith's "Mary, Mary," which of course features Micky's lead vocal and
Glen Campbell on lead guitar. 26th in production, "Alias Micky Dolenz"
was the final episode completed in 1966 (Dec 20-22), with Davy
explaining his absence, attending his sister's wedding in England.
