Kiss Your Favorite Monkee

Do you know—Really know—the Monkee you most adore? TAKE 16’s exclusive KISS TEST and SEE!

Nobody knows better than you do that the four boys who zoomed to fame soon after they first appeared on your TV screen in a mad new series called The Monkees are without a doubt the most lovable guys in your life.

But why? And why are most of you attracted to one of the boys in particular—to Davy, to Micky, to Peter or to Mike?

Personality has a lot to do with it, of course. And each of these boys has a personality of his own, as different from the others as night is from day.

Looks are extremely important, too. The color of hair and eyes, the tilt of a nose. But lips are the most appealing feature of all, for they express in so many ways all that a person is. Maybe that’s why lips are kissable, rather than hair or eyes or nose.

Would you recognize your favorite Monkee if you kissed each boy in turn with your eyes closed? You would? You’re sure?

Well, here’s the next best way to find out. Arranged on this page are four pairs of lips plucked from the features of all four Monkees. They’re not identified, of course—but if you really know your favorite Monkee, and feel that you are thisclose to everything about him, you ought to be able to go straight to his lips and plant a great big affectionate kiss!

Naturally, we wouldn’t leave you darkly wondering whether you had made a horrendous blooper and kissed Peter when you meant to kiss Davy, or Micky when you meant to kiss Mike (though Mike is happily married, he is still as kissable as your other fave raves), and so on. That’s why we’ve printed the captions upside down so that you can’t peek (don’t peek!)—but after you’ve kissed the lips you think belong to your favorite Monkee, read the captions and you’ll find out whether you need a new sense of direction or you really don’t know as much about your favorite Monkee as you thought you did!
