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...
Episode No. 15, “Too Many Girls” (a.k.a. "Davy And Fern") (prod. #4729, aired on NBC December 19, 1966), is this week's Featured Monkees Episode, to herald the 50th anniversary of its first-run telecast on NBC.
As always, here's wishing you and yours...
A happy 48th anniversary to The Monkees' motion picture HEAD, which opened in Manhattan on this day in 1968.
And we observe 50 years since the initial NBC-TV "color-cast" of this week's Featured Monkees Episode, No. 9, “The Chaperone” (prod. #4711, aired on NBC November 7, 1966). (Please forgive the weeklong delay; I would have featured Episode No. 8, “Don't Look A Gift Horse In The Mouth” [prod. #4708, aired on NBC October 31, 1966], in honor of its 50th birthday last week, but couldn't due to Tripod's server undergoing [yet another!!] upgrade.)
