When living in the UK Micky did a lot of behind the camera work, of course the UK spawned the best comedy team called Monty Python. So on which project did Micky work with Python members in 1981, and who were those Pythons?
The Box [also known as Buchanans Finest Hour], Michael Palin & Terry Jones
Ref: I’m A Believer, Monkeemania, http://www.barberusa.com/pop/dolenz_micky.html
Which Monkees are known to have spent at least a night wallowing in a cell due to naughty deeds?
Mike for not paying his bills shortly before the start of Monkees series filming, Micky for breaking into cars, Peter for being a drug fiend. If anyone can give me a good Davy one huzzah I’d love to know it!
Ref: Monkeemania, I’m A Believer, Monkees Tale, E! and other such documentaries
Name the originally released Monkee songs , [those put out in the 60’s], Mike recorded on his solo works.
Tapioca Tundra, Don’t Call On Me, While I Cried, Papa Genes Blues, You Just May Be The One, Sweet Young Thing, You Told Me, Listen To The Band
Ref: Wichita train Whistle Sings, Loose Salute
Who is Sandra Slater, and what the dickens does she have to do with the Monkees?
Samantha Juste she became Micky’s 1st wife.
Ref: Many zines, teen mags of the time, web sites like the most excellent Psycho Jello this place is my fave site dealing with Monkees!
In Mary Anne Cassata’s book ‘Hey Hey We’re The Monkees’ there is a big, big photographical error. What is it?
The picture of Mike isn’t it is in fact Bill Archer one time musical director of the Chicago Bears Big Bear Band whoever they might be when they are at home.
Ref: Monkees West zine, Hey Hey by Mary Anne just look at it and snigger, there was a discussion on the board once about this too. Monkees West also stated that it seems that Micky was in the same place at the same time and that he’d gone near the guy, he may even had said howdo and they instantly thought woo hoo Mike take a pic. Mary Anne somehow didn’t get to see the mistake before publication making you wonder who has ultimate say in peoples visions. Truly one to see and have a laugh at. Oh and Monkees West was a US zine by the way, that’s before I get but it’s not fair you’ve used UK zines we don’t get those……. Then perhaps you should there are also Japanese, Australian, Canadian, Dutch to name but a few!
Where were the pool pictures taken for the cover of 'Pool It!"?
Micky’s Beverly Hills home at the time in his pool. Or as one smart alec put in a pool…… I couldn’t argue with that one at all. Nor California either!
Ref: Monkees West
For reasons beyond the logic of a Vulcan, Micky seems to have renamed two of his sisters. Which two and what are their birth names?
Coco Sunshine - Gemma Marie, Gina - Kathleen. Have to say Gina mystifies me but hey ho……
Ref: Monkee Business fanzine to name but one of many who have dealt with this strangeness.
What is the reason given for Peter not getting drafted when he went to see the nice army men, and what classification did he get on his record?
He was crazy. 1 - Y
Ref: Monkees Monthlies yep as far back as 1967 he told this story that he went for his interview thing and they thought he was nuts, I did see the classification on the web way back in 2000 and asked about it on the board but got nothing so if anyone knows what it means get in touch please! Monkeemania for the crazy bit.
In 'Monkee Mother', what do Mike and Peter play acoustically during the dinner they try to fob Millie off onto the poor removal guy?
Don’t Call On Me
Ref: Monkees Video Box Set booklet, oh and I hang my head in shame as the TV & Film Vault also has it mentioned. Sessionography site: http://www.geocities.com/SunsetStrip/Towers/3152/3rdhq.html find March 20th
How do the TV shows, 'Cheers' and 'American Gothic' connect to The Monkees?
Shelly Long, Gary Cole, The Brady Bunch Movie. Which of course Micky, peter and Davy cameoed in. Davy sang the ‘Grunge’ [yeah right that was sooooo not Grunge but what are you going to do?] version of Girl….. why? Well see the Brady TV series.
Ref: Hmmmm what do you think? Shelly was Mrs Brady and Gary was Mr Brady. It was truly that easy folks.
Match Up The Whatnots:
In 'Changes', later titled 'Head', there was a mirror scene due before 'Ditty Diego War Chant' was later deleted, this scene has been very well documented and pictures released. It showed how the Monkees were seen to be perceived character wise. Match what each Monkee dressed up as/ in, what kind of character it was meant to show, also the kind of name it went by for filming in the script. [as this kind of is a tough one you will get should you get all bits right 20 points ain’t we kind?] Example should you think Mike was dressed a clown which character showed romance and was called in the script Pan you’d put Mike: 4, c, A
