Welcome to another year for The Monkees Film & TV Vault: The Year Of Our Lord 2019 AD! The 50th anniversary of the lone NBC telefcast of The Monkees' grand finale as a quartet: the TV special 33 1/3 Revolutions Per Monkee, and the start of The Monkees TV series Saturday Afternoon run on CBS!

Weeeee're baa-aaack! After a 2-month delay! My used laptop croaked due to old age in October. Hope your Halloween, Thanksgiving and Christmas was grand!

Lotsa catching up to do: first off, the Halloween page has been changed to the New Year's page. Next, this week's Featured Monkees Episode is No. 47, "The Monkees Christmas Show" (prod. #4746, aired on NBC December 25, 1967), in honor of The Big Day yesterday! Final Draft script dates have been added to the episode capsules for "It's A Nice Place To Visit..." (a.k.a. "The Monkees In Mexico") and "The Monkees Race Again" (a.k.a. "And Leave The Driving To Us").

Finally, the scan of that grainy, dark, unflattering photocopy I made of the 1967-68 NBC "Monday Night's The Night" ad which has resided as part of The Monkees Second Season Episode Index for many year has been been retired and replaced with a bright, clean color scan. Biggest thanks go to Tom Beiter of the Garage Sale Finds blog for contributing the scan!
