Julie Newmar as Thatwoman
5 January 2014 | by (Youngstown,Ohio) – See all my reviews

"Monkees Get Out More Dirt" features the purr-fect casting of leggy Catwoman Julie Newmar, whose April Conquest owns the local laundromat where The Monkees wash their clothes, each one falling in love at first sight just asking for soap. Fighting over the same girl puts a strain on their friendship, as they try to top one another over her favorite hobbies (Mike poses as Heidelberg psychiatrist 'Frigmund Fried,' discovering her love of motorcycles). The best joke is saved for the end, when Peter's apparent victory is snatched away at the last minute by Freddie Fox III (unbilled Monkees stand-in David Pearl), because she'd 'never met a singer before!' (we also find MR. PEEPERS, Wally Cox, putting in a very short bit). The lone song featured is the current B-side to their new single ("A Little Bit Me, a Little Bit You," issued Mar 1967), "The Girl I Knew Somewhere," composed by Michael Nesmith, and introducing new Monkees producer Douglas Farthing Hatlelid, better known as Chip Douglas, who had worked with The Turtles and The Modern Folk Quartet. This was the first band recording (Feb 23) issued since the Feb 27 ousting of Don Kirshner, with Nesmith on both acoustic and electric 12-string guitars, his future First National Band member John London on bass, Micky of course on drums, and especially Peter's masterful harpsichord, rarely used on a rock tune at the time. Broadcast no. 29 (Apr 3 1967), "Monkees Get Out More Dirt" was 31st in production, filmed Jan 26-27.
