The Monkees make their TV farewell
10 February 2014 | by See all my reviews

The Oct 6 1969 edition of LAUGH-IN marked the very last TV appearance of The Monkees, just days away from the Oct 11 release of their eighth LP, THE MONKEES PRESENT (last to feature Michael Nesmith). Among the regular performers are- Dan Rowan, Dick Martin, Gary Owens, Ruth Buzzi, Judy Carne, Arte Johnson, Henry Gibson, Jo Anne Worley, Goldie Hawn, Alan Sues, Jeremy Lloyd, Pamela Rodgers, Teresa Graves, and Byron Gilliam. We get jokes about "Myra Breckinridge" (currently filming with Raquel Welch), and jokes about chicken meat in hot dogs (Pamela: "which came first, the weenie or the egg?"). After four years of nonstop activity, Davy Jones, Micky Dolenz, and Michael Nesmith were just going through the motions, but they do ask Goldie if she'd like to join the group: "all you guys do is monkey around!" During the joke wall finale, Micky accidentally bangs his head (expletive deleted), cracking up the delightful Judy Carne, while the bearded Nesmith gets a bit of mileage from his nightmare: "first of all, I dreamt I was on a stage completely naked, that's the good news. Now for the bad news, I was riding shotgun at the time!" Reduced to a trio and reduced in stature, remaining in the public eye by appearing on other shows (something they were forbidden to do when their series was still on the air), it's a sad, unheralded farewell, with Nesmith's departure in April 1970 signaling the final dissolution of the band.
