Last Time Around for The Monkees

The Monkees TV Special will be a nostalgic experience. It’s the last time we’ll ever see the four great guys together ever again. But their special is not a sad thing, it’s a rollicking, rolling, fun-filled hour with super guest stars. “DYNAMITE” says Peter of the Special, and we think it’s a perfect description!

  • Micky Dolenz, Peter Tork, Mike Nesmith, Davy Jones, Dave Ambrose
    Opening the special is a scene where Brian Auger who is the leader of the British group Trinity, decides to make a super group. He tells each one “You are Monkee number one,” etc. until he has a synthetic super group.
  • Alice in Wonderland (?), Goldilocks (?), Davy Jones, Raggedy Ann (?)
    Once again we get to see Davy dance and sing as he did in “Head.” This number casts Davy as a little boy singing about all the things he loves. What a dancer!
  • Micky Dolenz, Mike Nesmith, Davy Jones, Peter Tork
    As soon as Brian Auger informs Davy, Micky, Peter and Mike that they are the Monkees, he dresses them alike and sets them off into a song, as if they were machines.
  • Mike Nesmith
    Each Monkee had a solo song on the show, Mike’s was a western tune.
  • Alice in Wonderland (?), Davy Jones, Goldilocks (?)
    Peter says the special will be DYNAMITE; it certainly looks that way!
  • Micky Dolenz
    Micky’s solo number was a soulful version of “I’m A Believer.”
