Episode No. 16, “The Son Of A Gypsy” (prod. #4724, aired on NBC December 26, 1966 and June 12, 1967), remains The Featured Monkees Episode, representing its first preemption 50 years ago this week on NBC.
Episode No. 16, “The Son Of A Gypsy” (prod. #4724, aired on NBC December 26, 1966 and June 12, 1967), is this week's Featured Monkees Episode, celebrating the 50th anniversary of its first-run telecast on NBC.
And now, a special MF&TVV Update...the last of the year marking 50 Revolutions Per Monkee, 2016, now in the home stretch.
Next year, 2017, marks The Monkees Film & TV Vault's 20th year on The World Wide Web! And several alterations have ben made exclusively to the front page to mark this site's Platinum Jubilee. First, a special background is made of screenshots of The Monkees Film & TV Vault in past appearances thru the years. Second, a special Monkees Film & TV Vault 20th Anniversary masthead has been created, with a special "20th Anniversary" clip art, specially affixed over the masthead. Third, all of the font color type has been reverted to the regular silver lettering (save for the Featured Monkees Episode section, which remains gold as the site continues to honor the Golden Anniversaries of initial Monkees installments during the original run on NBC!).
As always, thanks again, fellow Monkeemavens. 20 years...I can't believe this! None of the site's popularity over the past 2 decades would exist without your patronage and support. Seems like only yesterday when I first gave life to The Monkees Film & TV Vault at the Kinko's on Saint Charles Avenue in The CBD here in NOLA. A huge honor it is for me!
Here's wishing you and yours a safe, healthy...
