The song that figures prominently in the plot, "Gonna Buy Me A Dog," is "credited" to Michael Nesmith
but is in actuality a Tommy Boyce
/ Bobby Hart
novelty tune. The reason the song is "credited" to Mike is because during mid-summer 1966 recording sessions for the show, Mike produced a bluesy instrumental version of the song for possible use on the series and the group's first album. Mike's version was not used and languished in storage until 2006. See more

I came to tell ya, that how much I appreciate that you're doing my song in your new show.
Well, I'm proud and just a little bit humbled to say I don't know what the devil you're talking about.
Aw, sure you do, you know, it's kind of a bouncy tune... You're doing it in your new flick.
A bouncy tune... in 'The Wolfgirl meets the Vampire in the Old West'?
