Two-gun Micky—the slowest rope in the West!

  • Micky Dolenz
    “Heh, heh—here comes Shoot-’Em-Up Jones, the orniest hombre ever to hit mah town. I’ll jest take mah trusty ol lasso and tie him up like he wuz a maverick calf.”
  • Micky Dolenz
    “A one, a two—and thar it goes!”
  • Micky Dolenz
    “W-W-Whut-t?! Why, dad burn it—I went and lassoed meself!
  • Micky Dolenz
    “Now, that won’t do—won’t do a-tall! Got to untangle meself in a hurry, cos that cool bad cat Deadmen-Tell-No-Tales Jones is comin’ on fast!
  • Micky Dolenz
    “Got time fer just—one—mo’ throw!
  • Micky Dolenz
    “Oh, well—one way or another, Sheriff Dolenz always gets his man!”

Wrongway Dave—or how not to mount a horse! (with no help from puzzled Peter)

  • Peter Tork, Davy Jones
    “By Jove! So this is the sort of fearless steed that helped to win the American West, is it? Peculiar looking animal, I must say. Not at all like the well-curried English thoroughbreds I’m used to. Ah, well, better get a leg up and canter off.”
  • Peter Tork, Davy Jones
    “I say—what ’appened to the horse’s head? Oh! There you are!”
  • Peter Tork, Davy Jones
    “Blimey, what now?! Never saw anybody ride a horse this way before! Peculiar people, the Americans.”
  • Peter Tork, Davy Jones
    “Oh. I see. Well, Rover—or whatever your name is. Guess we both better call it a day!”

The six-shooter that went thataway! (starring (?) Dead-eye Davy)

  • Davy Jones
    Have you ever dreamed of being a cowboy? Well, then, a cowgirl? And pumping your worst enemy full of lead? It’s easy when you know how. The trick is to whip the sixshooter out of your holster lightning-fast and then fan with your left hand while your right hand works the trigger. (Or are you left-handed?)
  • Davy Jones
    But first you give the old six-gun a twirl—like Davy is doing.
  • Davy Jones
    And then you spread your feet and rest your hands on your gun-belt and look nasty—like Davy is doing.
  • Davy Jones
    And finally you—you… Well, luv, it was nice knowing you!

Peter Tork—wanted dead or alive

  • Peter Tork
    “Goodbye, cruel world!”
  • Peter Tork
    “No, no—I can’t go yet! I have too much to live for!”
  • Peter Tork, El Diablo (Peter Whitney)
    “Two for tea, and tea for two… Gee, I just love dancing with Tiny Tim!”
  • Peter Tork, El Diablo (Peter Whitney)
    “How did he get that arrow in his head when I haven’t even pulled the string of my bow?!

Davy’s secret sweetheart?

  • Davy Jones
    Davy’s most devoted “fan”…
  • Davy Jones
    And everywhere that Davy went…
  • Davy Jones
    “Oops! Now, just a minute—!”
  • Davy Jones
    “Listen, my name ain’t Mary—and you ain’t a lamb!
  • Davy Jones
    “Oh—you wanta have your picture taken with me? O.K., smile pretty.”
  • Davy Jones
    “Now you wanta WHAT?!”
  • Davy Jones
    “All right, just one kiss. But, uh—er—have you seen your dentist lately?”

The wooing and winning of editor Gloria

  • Micky Dolenz, Gloria Stavers
    Now we take you to Monkee-land, the mad, mad world of Davy, Micky, Peter and Mike.

  • Micky Dolenz, Gloria Stavers
    —and they both break up (wouldn’t you?)!
  • Micky Dolenz, Gloria Stavers
    “They’re not caps, Gloria—honest!
  • Micky Dolenz, Gloria Stavers

  • Micky Dolenz, Gloria Stavers
    Micky mugs—and it’s just too much.
  • Micky Dolenz, Gloria Stavers
    Helpless with laughter, they crack up together. Like we said—Monkee-land is a mad, mad world!

  • Peter Tork
    “Ah—time for my magic act. First, I’ll bedazzle everybody with my Indian clubs, then—then I’ll spring my rabbit from the folds of my magic cape!”
  • Peter Tork
    “Oops—dropped one! Uh—dropped two! Er—three! Guess I’d better sneak out my rabbit, or my audience will disappear before I do!”
  • Peter Tork
    “Gleeps! Forgot to bring the rabbit! But the show must go on, so back to the clubs. Oof!—dropped one…!”

The mad, mad, mad world of Monkee-land!
