Trivia

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 »

Quotes

Director: [on the phone] 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.

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, only 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."
