    Default The Monkees

    I know these guys are from the 60's, but if you grew up in the 80's you might remember their TV series being repeated. For a while my best friend and I were obsessed with the monkees. We loved watching the show and had no clue that it was 20 years out of date as we were only about 6. As far as we were concerned, they were a current band! My fave was Mickey, yet another early crush lol.

    I and my friends were avid followers of this show in the early 70s. It must have had quite a few repeat runs!

    I used to watch this. It used to follow some show with an elephant dog and monkey in which the theme tune was "one banana, two banana, three banana, four". I heard that it was "the Monkees" themselves in the costumes, but I don't know if this is true.

    i remember the series with great fondness being part of the bbc weekday morning schedule for the summer holidays which seemed to be on a rota along with those badly dubbed serieslike the flashing blades,on white horses and robinson crusoe

    the jack nicholson wrote movie "HEAD" which the monkees did was really psychedelic and weird they dont show that on telly very often

    I had the complete collection of the Monkees trading cards; which you got with those packs of tiny pieces of chewing gum. If you turned the cards over and fitted all the pictures on the reverse together, it created a large picture of the Monkees playing a gig.
