Monkee Spectacular

I feel as if I lost my best friend today. Why? I have just bought my last issue of Monkee Spectacular.

No longer will I see the catch words, “Monkee Spectacular” at the newsstand on top of a stack of newly delivered magazines.

It makes me feel that soon the Monkees will be forgotten! Please don’t forget the grooviest group in the world!

Just a rumor

Please, pretty please! Print a reply explaining this! I read in a newspaper that Kurt Russell died in his Hollywood apartment the week of June!! I don’t know what to make of it! I’ve been crying ever since I heard this!

Kathy Wong

Dry your tears! We called Kurt as we read your letter, and he’s alive and well!

Worth living

In a recent issue, Desi said that he would like to trade peace and get love. If everyone would do that, the world would be like God created it, and life would be worth living!

We think your magazine is an insulting piece of literature! The articles are so childish and vulgar! You make all of the big stars seem so perfect. Why can’t you tell the truth?

No Address

TIGER BEAT always tells the truth.

Disappointed in Sajid

I have to say how disappointed I was in Sajid Khan when I saw him on “The Dating Game.” I have always liked him very much, but when he acted the way he did on the show, it nearly made me sick!

The girl chose him, and when he came around the partition he really ignored her like she was nothing. He acted like the only purpose for being on the show was to get publicity.

I’ve always heard how considerate Sajid is of girls. Do you call ignoring her being considerate? The poor girl was so embarrassed she could have died!

Beautiful creation

Every time I see a picture of that beautiful Indian creation, Sajid Khan, I go all soft inside! But I’m not the type that would throw myself all over him and act like a retarded limp french fry if I ever did meet him. And I will meet you Sajid, so get ready!

I always thought Mark Lindsay was all right until I read his article on maxi-skirts. From the stories I’ve read about him, he’s supposed to like a girl for her inner beauty. Now I know that’s a bunch of baloney. It was the most distasteful story I’ve ever read in TIGER BEAT! Pretty clever of Mark to print his opinion in a big magazine because he knows he’s popular and can influence his fans!

Mark and maxi-skirts

Tell Mark Lindsay that the girls of Highbridge in the Bronx are with him on preferring minis to maxis. We love our mini-skirts and so do the boys!

In all my Monkee magazines, books, etc. I’ve averaged out that Davy smiles ¾ of the time, Micky ⅝, Peter ½ and Mike ⅛.

Thanks for helping

Last week my doctor said I had to stay in bed for one whole week! I’m better now, and I’d like to give the Monkees a special thanks for helping. The seven boring days weren’t so boring because of them.

I have all five of their albums, which means I had at least two hours and 24 minutes and 45 seconds of enjoyment each day! This is how long it takes to play both sides of all five albums. When you multiply that times seven and add 30 extra minutes for their show, you get 17 hours, 23 minutes and 15 seconds of the Monkees in one week!

So thanks a million, Monkees for helping me through a dull week!

Answer to “giant”

I’m writing this letter to the girl who wrote in a couple of issues ago calling herself the “Giant.” Please print it so she and all tall girls feel better.

I am 13 years old and 5'8" tall. I have a 15 year old cousin who is 5'11" and she is beautiful. So think of it this way: How many tall boys won’t date short girls ’cos they think they’ll be stepping all over a pee-wee girlfriend?

Tarnished images

I am utterly repulsed by Duke Lewis’ “Happening in Hollywood” column! His caustic, sarcastic and highly opinionated remarks on various people make me sick! From all appearances they are only his own prejudiced and embittered opinions. They only bias other people’s views of pop stars unfairly!

I firmly believe his column should be eliminated from your otherwise fair and truthful magazine. Thanks for having such an honest publication and allowing me to air my views.

Dino an actress?

Since when did Dino Martin become an actress? (When Desi and Billy listed him as their fave actress, July TiGER BEAT.)

Desi and Billy were teasing Dino about his hair, as usual!
