Monty Landis and Venita Wolf
12 January 2014 | by (Youngstown,Ohio) – See all my reviews

Broadcast no. 38 (Oct 16 1967), "I Was a 99-Pound Weakling" was also 38th in production, filmed May 9-11 (Michael Nesmith's absence is often mentioned but never explained, yet he didn't have his tonsils removed until May 23). Micky gets the focus here, along with Monty Landis, making his fifth straight appearance, this time as Shah-Ku, running a phony body building school with the aid of dim witted Bulk (David Draper, current Mr. Universe), who plays the 'bully on the beach' and steals away Micky's dumb blonde girl (gorgeous Venita Wolf, from STAR TREK's "The Squire of Gothos"). We get a second showing for "Love is Only Sleeping" (from the forthcoming PISCES LP), and the only airing for Nesmith's own "Sunny Girlfriend" (from HEADQUARTERS), featuring Nes on both electric 12-string guitar and acoustic guitar, Tork on electric six-string guitar, Dolenz on drums, and Jones on maracas. Next in production- "Monkees Marooned."
