I really dig the Monkees, just like every other bird in the country. I love Davy and my girlfriend is ape over Micky. Naturally we think that each of our faves is the grooviest looking Monkee, so we’re constantly arguing. I think Davy has the best set of teeth, and the cutest smile, but she thinks Micky does.

Peter has a lovable smile, and Mike—well we don’t know! He’s never shown us his BIG OLD STOMPIN’ SMILE, if he has one! Would you please print a picture of Mike grinning so we might see his teeth?

We promise to print a smiling picture of Mike real soon.

Davy Jones is crazy about girls’ legs. Well, I was just thinking his own legs aren’t bad either! Just look at them, kids! He’s got the cutest legs on earth! (To prove it, look on the back of the album, “More of the Monkees” and see for yourself!)

I want to say that I love Micky Dolenz and Davy Jones so much I got two fish and named them after my fave Monkees. Davy is the little one, and Micky is the bigger one.

My mother has locked up my records and my magazines just because I don’t do well in school! Now she won’t let me watch the Monkees on TV! Isn’t that unfair?

Boston, Mass.

Wow!!! That Davy really is great! I dig all of the Monkees, but Davy really turns me on with that English accent and that baby face of his! It’s enough to drive any girl crazy!

We’re in a daze over the Monkees, and it was such a thrill to see them in Nashville when they were here on tour. If you can believe it, they are even cuddlier in person!

I simply loved your MONKEE SPECTACULAR #1, and I can’t wait until MONKEE SPECTACULAR #2 comes out!

The real purpose of this letter is to tell you that I tried one of the Monkee recipes from the magazine. I tried Davy’s Steak one night. My mother said I had to cook dinner, so I made his steak recipe and my family loved it!

Thanks ever so much, and keep the recipes coming!

I had my MONKEE SPECTACULAR on my desk at school and my student teacher caught me reading it. He looked at the book and told me he knew Micky Dolenz. I almost screamed, but I controlled myself!

I don’t know if the teacher was putting me on. I hope not!

Like thousands of other girls, I would like very much to have the Monkees make a movie. We all enjoy their antics on their TV show, (not to mention some of their records) and I’m sure everyone would like to be able to watch them for a longer period of time. These boys are so talented they can do everything.

I think we should make up a petition and send it to a movie studio, telling them to make a movie with the Monkees. I took a petition around my school to keep their show on TV and I got over 2,000 signatures. Everyone in school, teachers and principals included (he’s hip!) signed it. I’m sure they’d sign another one. What do you think, Monkee fans?

I just love Peter Tork! He is my favorite Monkee. Please put a lot more of him in your magazine. I’m even learning to play the bass because he plays it!

Christie Stather
Beverly, Mass.

Let’s have lots more on Micky Dolenz, the greatest Monkee of them all! I know he must be as nice as he seems to be. He’s just a doll!

I’m a real big fan of the Monkees. I think they are the grooviest group around today. Ever since their show first appeared on TV, I’ve never missed it. I’ve also got both of their albums.

I hope the Monkees have great success in the coming years.

I realy flipped when I saw the MONKEE SPECTACULAR #1 on the newsstand! I couldn’t believe how fab it was! Please tell me you are going to continue publishing this gear mag!

Faye Brown
White Plains, N.Y.

We just crave the Monkees, but we don’t especially dig Davy Jones’ hair! Really, it does look childish! When their show first started we just died when we saw Davy! He was real swingin’ looking. But it’s a disgrace how he lets that hair get longer every week!

Davy, we love you, but please get a haircut! What do you think, Monkee fans?

I am a great fan of Micky Dolenz and would like to hear more about him. He could sit under my window anytime and sing to me!
