Storyline

Davy has been put under the spell of Lorelei, or to be precise, her magic necklace. Her uncle, a Transylvanian Count, wants to turn Davy into a vampire. When the other Monkees arrive looking for their missing mate from Manchester, Peter's mind is singled out to be put inside a monster and Micky to become a wolf man. Mike manages to escape the vampire's clutches by dressing up in a mummy's smelly old wrappings. Written by The TV Archaeologist

Vampires, mummies and werewolves, oh my!
29 January 2014 | by (Youngstown,Ohio) – See all my reviews

Broadcast no. 51 (Jan 22 1968), "The Monstrous Monkey Mash" references Bobby 'Boris' Pickett's "Monster Mash" from 1962, featuring vampires, werewolves, bats, one mummy, and one (Frankenstein) Monster. Back from "The Spy Who Came in from the Cool" is beautiful Arlene Martel, more recently seen as Spock's wife T'Pring in STAR TREK's "Amok Time," whose Lorelei traps Davy into being groomed as a vampire by her uncle The Count (Lou Costello lookalike Ron Masak). Micky finds himself becoming a werewolf, while David Pearl's Wolfman is chasing sticks before demanding a better percentage of the profits. There's a mummy whose costume is stolen by Mike, and by the time Frankenstein's Monster wakes up, Nesmith really gives him a buzz (not a mention of the Texas prairie chicken). This is the second appearance of the single version of the band's self-composed "Goin' Down," heard previously only in "A Coffin Too Frequent" (as opposed to Micky's live vocalization featured in "The Wild Monkees" and "The Monkees in Texas"). 51st in production, filmed Oct 31-Nov 2 1967, next up- "Fairy Tale."
