Vito Scotti and Vincent Gardenia
22 December 2013 | by (Youngstown,Ohio) – See all my reviews

"The Case of the Missing Monkey," with Bob Rafelson back at the helm, is one of the standout first season entries, with veteran scene stealer Vito Scotti in fine form, kidnapping rocket scientist Schnitzler (Norbert Schiller), who slips Peter a note revealing where he's being taken; when Peter also disappears, his three bandmates try to infiltrate the clinic by posing as patients. Best remembered as the 'Japanese Sailor' in two episodes of GILLIGAN'S ISLAND, Scotti even hilariously impersonates a Chinese restaurateur (Micky: "do you have Schnitzler here?" Scotti: "no, we have fried rice, chicken chow mein, won ton soup!"). Nancy Fish gets plenty of laughs as a helpful nurse who slips everyone powerful 'cough drops,' but Vincent Gardenia is sadly wasted in a throwaway thug henchman role. The lone song is Boyce and Hart's "(I'm Not Your) Steppin' Stone" (its second airing), the B-side to the current single, "I'm a Believer." Broadcast no. 17, "The Case of the Missing Monkey" was 22nd in production, filmed Nov 10-11 1966. At this point, the group had basically shot 21 straight episodes with nary a break; filming only resumed following their debut concert performance in Honolulu on Dec 3, future shows sandwiched around live concert dates for most of the next year (their second LP, MORE OF THE MONKEES, was issued one day after this Jan 9 airing, the first of the new year).
