Trivia

Michael Nesmith was unavailable during the bulk of the shoot, but appears on camera for the first minute and one brief subsequent shot. He introduces guest narrator Pat Paulsen, whose scenes appear to have been added at a later stage to pad the story out to regular length. See more »

Goofs

Robot Mickey has backward feet; yet when he leads Davy and Mickey through the beach sand to the spaceship, his feet are normal. See more »

Quotes

Peter: I can see that all this questioning is wearing you out. Would you like a drink?

Pat Paulsen and Nita Talbot
14 January 2014 | by (Youngstown,Ohio) – See all my reviews

Broadcast no. 49 (Jan 15 1968), "Monkees Watch Their Feet" was actually 40th in production, filmed May 24-26 1967, while Michael Nesmith was recovering from his May 23 tonsillectomy. Nes does appear to introduce the marvelously deadpan Pat Paulsen, a sensation in '68 running for President on the STAG (Straight Talking American Government) ticket, his slogan, "if elected, I will win!" (he died in 1997). Paulsen's Secretary for the Department of UFO Information shows us a film depicting the alien abduction of Micky Dolenz, replaced by a lookalike robot that rusts easily and has feet pointing backwards. Micky has a field day, and the invaders are played by Stuart Margolin (THE ROCKFORD FILES) and sexy Nita Talbot, but overall the stop-start chaotic presentation is just a mess. The lone track featured is "Star Collector," making its third go-round. Next in production- "A Nice Place to Visit," which became the debut telecast of the second season.
