Barton MacLane and Len Lesser
28 January 2014 | by kevin olzakSee all my reviews

Broadcast no. 45 (Dec 4 1967), "Monkees in Texas" is a major cut above other recent entries, another Western satire with great villains Barton MacLane (I DREAM OF JEANNIE), Rex Holman (STAR TREK's "Spectre of the Gun"), and Len Lesser (previously seen in "Monkees in a Ghost Town"). The Monkees are visiting Michael's Aunt Kate (Jacqueline DeWit), whose Texas ranch is under assault by Black Bart and his cutthroat gang. Meanwhile, kindly Ben Cartwheel (Barton MacLane) assures Kate that he's available whenever she needs him, because the sheriff (James Griffith) is too busy shooting (his TV series). Micky and Peter impersonate 'The Lone Stranger and Pronto' as they infiltrate Black Bart's gang, while Mike discovers that 'Texas crude' is the reason behind the attacks (nothing is resolved, the bad guys simply riding off). Appearing unbilled are Bonnie Dewberry as Cousin Lucy (previously seen in "I Was a Teenage Monster"), and rock photographer (ala Linda Eastman) Nurit Wilde, who nine months later gave birth to Michael Jason Nesmith, third son of Papa Nez (she was married to frequent Monkees writer Peter Meyerson, who later did the same for WELCOME BACK KOTTER). While Micky's live rendition of the group-composed "Goin' Down" gets its second and last airing (from "The Wild Monkees"), this marked the debut for Boyce and Hart's "Words" (recorded June 14), a harder rocking version superior to the duo's original production of Aug 15 1966, featured in the first season episode "Monkees Manhattan Style." Three Monkees actually play on this Chip Douglas production, first issued as the B-side of fourth single "Pleasant Valley Sunday," with Jones on percussion, Nesmith on electric guitar and percussion, and Tork on organ and killer bass, again sharing lead vocals with Micky. 49th in production, filmed Oct 17-19, next up- "Monkees on the Wheel."
