It's a Pleasant Valley Sunday to undo
all Pleasant Valley Sundays!!
This particular Pleasant Valley Sunday marks the fifty-fifth anniversary of
the day when a certain Beatles-infuenced comedy-fantasy series from Raybert/Screen Gems TV Productions called The Monkees
hit the airwaves for the first time In Living Color on The NBC Television Network. And to honor 55 Revolutions Per Monkee, The Featured Monkees Episode Of The Week is, appropriately, the episode which launched the series' original run, the Emmy-winning “The Royal Flush”
(prod. #4701, aired on NBC September 12, 1966 and May 8, 1967)...yep, that's right, a good 55 years to the very day it first aired.
So here's to 55 Revolutions Per Monkee...and here's to 55 more. And 55 more after that..

After a week of no updates due to
a natural disaster (Huirricane Ida!!!), Episode No. 49, "The Monkees Watch Their Feet" (a.k.a. "Micky And The Outer Space Creatures")
(prod. #4743, aired on NBC January 15 and September 9, 1968), is this week's Featured Monkees Episode, to observe its relelecast finishing The Monkees' originl run on NBC 53 years ago this week,
and to reflect the weekly changing of the Featured Monkees Episode from Monkee Monday back to Pleasant Valley Sunday.
Also, The Monkees' FETV--Family Entertainment Television Showtime chart on the front page is now removed, as its 4-year run in repeats on FETV
ran its course as of Saturday, August 28, 2021.
Reworked Production Notes in "The Picture Frame" (a.k.a. "The Bank Robbery") and "The Monkees Watch Their Feet" (a.k.a. "Micky And The Outer Space Creatures").
