There was no actual Monkeemania in Paris when the band visited, and they were mostly free to roam the city. The show's producers hired some French models to accompany the Monkees, after pretending to recognize and chase them for the camera. See more

Bob, man they just walked off the set! I don't know where they went, they said they were going to Paris. Now that isn't my responsibility, man, I'm not a baby sitter, you know what I mean? Look, how do I know what to put on the air? Put on a half hour commercial like the Johnny Carson Show. Or better yet, why don't you put on another Monkees segment, I mean they're all the same. I saved the show for you, though, babe, I got a nice tight close up of the Monkey. Hahaha. very funny.
