Trivia

Most of the action takes place in Paris and was filmed there in June 1967, while the prologue and epilogue were shot in Hollywood on December 24, 1967. These wraparound segments were shot to give context to the Paris footage and also conveyed the real-life exhaustion The Monkees were feeling toward filming a weekly television series. They were the final segments ever shot for the original series. See more »

Quotes

Director: Now Artie, I've changed the concept completely: no moustache, no foreign accent, and this time, instead of coming in and asking for the microfilm, you ask for the Secret Apple!
Artie: Huh, so what's the difference in the script?
Director: Don't get smart!

Broadcast no. 54 (Feb 19 1968- 43rd in production), "The Monkees in Paris" serves as a rare and welcome departure from formula, as the group leave regular director James Frawley behind and fly to Paris for a holiday (filming June 24-28 1967 done by Bob Rafelson). Paris was chosen because plans to do it in England fell apart, but since The Monkees were still unknown in France, girl models actually had to be hired to chase them through the Paris streets. There is no plot to speak of, just a document of their adventures overseas, just not as fascinating as "The Monkees on Tour." Three songs from the Pisces LP get another airing: "Love is Only Sleeping," "Star Collector," and "Goin' Down," while making its only series appearance is "Don't Call on Me," a pre-Monkees composition from Michael Nesmith, co-written by John London, his regular stand-in and future bandmate in The First National Band. "Don't Call on Me" features Nesmith on electric guitar, Tork on organ, 'Fast' Eddie Hoh on drums and claves, and producer Chip Douglas contributing both bass and acoustic guitar. The show would go on hiatus for the band's summer tour, only resuming Sept 13 with "Hillbilly Honeymoon."
