Last Week's Monkees TV Almanac (9/5-11/10)
Mood:  d'oh
Topic: I KNEW I missed something...

SEPTEMBER 5, 1967

"The Wild Monkees", Episode No. 42 of The Monkees (prod. #4742, aired on NBC November 13, 1967), was repeated @ Noon (EDT) on CBS, with a new song added:  "Looking For The Good Times," written by Tommy Boyce & Bobby Hart.

This repeat wrapped up The Monkees TV show's first season of repeats on CBS Saturday Afternoons.


SEPTEMBER 8, 1975

The Monkees
television show, 58 episodes in color and distributed exclusively by Columbia Pictures Television, premiered in local syndication, 2 years after completing a neat 4-year run on CBS and ABC Saturday Afternoon (September 1969 - August 1973). The first 7 TV stations to have the honour of carrying the series locally were KBHK-TV in San Francisco, WFLD-TV in Chicago, WKBS-TV in Philadelphia, WKBD-TV in Detroit, WLVI-TV in Boston, KDNL in St. Louis, and WDCA-TV in Washington D.C. (Peter Tork's hometown!!). For 9 years the show played on and off these and other local markets until the group's 20th Anniversary in 1986 put them over worldwide.

SEPTEMBER 9, 1968

"The Picture Frame" (a.k.a. "The Bank Robbery"), Episode No. 34 of The Monkees (prod. #4759, aired on NBC September 18, 1967 and April 1, 1968), was repeated again at 7:30p.m. (EDT) on NBC.

This re-rebroadcast marked the farewell appearance of The Monkees television series on NBC in prime time (not, as commonly believed, the August 19, 1968 repeat of Episode No. 56, "Some Like It Lukewarm"). It was replaced a week later in its 7:30 Monday stead by I Dream Of Jeannie, which, ironically, followed The Monkees in its first season.

TV Guide erroneously listed Episode No. 49, "The Monkees Watch Their Feet" (prod. #4743) airing on this Labor Day! "The Picture Frame" (a.k.a. "The Bank Robbery") remains the only Monkees installment to experience 3 telecasts on NBC.

SEPTEMBER 9, 1972

"The Case Of The Missing Monkee," Episode No. 17 of The Monkees (prod. #4731, aired on NBC January 9 and July 24, 1967), was repeated at 1:00p.m. (EDT) on ABC.

This was the first repeat of The Monkees on ABC Saturday Morning.

SEPTEMBER 11, 1967

"It's A Nice Place To Visit..."
(prod. #4752) first aired at 7:30/6:30 Central Time on NBC as the 33rd episode of The Monkees. The sponsor of the week was Kellogg's, and the song featured was "What Am I Doing Hangin' 'Round?" (Murphy / Castleman).

This episode introduced The Monkees TV series' second season on The Peacock Network. Also on this day, 12 1/2 hours before "It's A Nice Place To Visit..." was scheduled to air, The Monkees themselves, after a long, grueling summer of touring and recording (the upcoming 4th album, Pisces, Aquarius, Capricorn & Jones, Ltd.), reported to Screen Gems Studio 7 in Hollywood to resume production on their television show; first on the agenda was episode #4768, "Hillbilly Honeymoon" (a.k.a. "Double Barrell Shotgun Wedding") (to air on NBC in late October as Monkees Episode No. 39), by Peter Meyerson.

SEPTEMBER 11, 1971

"The Monkees On The Line," Episode No. 28 of The Monkees (prod. #4739, aired on NBC March 27 and August 28, 1967), was repeated at noon (EDT) on CBS, with a new song added: "Little Girl," written by Micky Dolenz.

With this repeat, The Monkees TV show entered its third and final season on CBS Saturday Afternoons.
