The Night Micky Became a Robot

Micky does some wild things and playing robot had everyone laughing for hours.

It began like any other recording session—most of the Monkees were a little late. Micky came first on his motorcycle in complete head gear. As a joke, he pretented [sic] he was stiff and walked around looking like a robot.

Someone said, “I bet you can’t do that all night.” That’s all Micky had to hear—a dare—he can’t resist a date. So, for four hours and 23 minutes Micky was a mechanical robot and talked like a programmed machine.

He’s the greatest!

    Info Monkee producer Chip Douglas got a big laugh out of Micky’s act. Micky played stiff all the time except while he played his drums. That boy just can’t resist a dare!
