Can you guess which TV show the Monkees are on?

Hey, hey, they're not always the Monkees.

The Monkees had their own wild show, of course. Not to mention a feature film, Head. Oh, and the band has cut loads of records. 

But Micky, Peter, Davy and Michael boast deeper acting credits beyond the Monkees. The four have turned up repeatedly on television over the years, together and separately, in comedies, cop shows and family dramas. Sometimes, they even sing a song or two. 

It takes a keen eye and crack TV trivia knowledge to place them on all these shows. See if you can match the Monkees members to the correct series! Good luck!
  1. Davy Jones famously appeared in the episode "Getting Davy Jones" on this series.
  2. Before he was a Monkee, he starred in a 1956–58 series called 'Circus Boy.' Which Monkee is he?

  3. Here is Micky chowing on some chili dogs with little Dodie Douglas on which sitcom?
  4. He could do action, too, as seen in this '70s cop series.
  5. Here's a little band reunion as they play for the cast of this '90s sitcom.

  6. Peter Tork showed up twice on this family drama, playing a former bandmate of the dad. They had a group called The Flower and Vegetable Band. Tork even sang the show's theme song in a scene.

  7. Davy Jones turned up to help sing a show's theme song in a scene. Which '80s sitcom is it?
  8. Here is Davy in an episode called "Love and the Model Apartment." Which series would this be?
  9. Here is Jones getting roughed around by the titular hero of what '80s cop show?
  10. Dolenz played a motorcycle tough named "Oiler" on this show, giving Reed and Malloy all they could handle.

  11. Nesmith played the father of Kyle MacLachlan's character on this sketch comedy series.

I wonder if MeTV will show the TV special they did in 1969 - "33 1/3 Revolutions Per Monkee!"

9/11. Never saw many if these shows which I think I'm okay with. Glad to see Love American Style tucked in there.

Peter Tork (God rest his soul) appeared on Wings. Although I know which episode to look for, Hulu for some reason skips it. Davy appeared on Sabrina the Teenage Witch as himself and sings "I'll love you Forever"

How ironic I saw this a day after Peter Tork died....

After the movie and before the first breakup, they did a TV special 33 1/3 Revolutions Per Monkee. It's worth searching out simply from the aspect of the band's short-lived psychedelic phase. Highlights include Julie Driscoll with Brian Auger and the Trinity and Jerry Lee Lewis, Fats Domino, Little Richard and Auger playing on stacked pianos. It flopped in the ratings because it was shown against the Super Bowl. In the Pacific time zone, the tapes were mixed up and was shown out of sequence.
It flopped in the ratings because it was shown against The 41st Academy Awards on ABC. {Monkees were on NBC.} Not The Super Bowl.

Before the Monkees, Davy appeared on the Ed Sullivan Show the night the Beatles debuted on American TV. He was the Artful Dodger in a group from the musical "Oliver!", but was really only there as a supporting character for featured singer Georgia Brown.

11/11! What was the "stage name" Micky used while on Circus Boy?

I would have missed a few but MeTv tends to reveal hints in their photos.
Mickey looks really good in #4 sitting on the sofa. 😍

And you didn’t show the Wings episode with Peter Tork!

You forgot to include Davy's triumph as Gregg, the glue-sniffer, on Ben Casey.
It was his first USA based acting credit.
Thank you! 😊

11/11 The only one I had to guess at was the last one. I've never seen an episode of any of these series.

11. The dead giveaway is the flag in the background. Easy for those familiar with the flags of American cities.

I totally sucked on this one,7 out of 11.

Me, too. Not even the hints of who owned what picture helped this time.

I *do,* however, have the Monkees' first two albums on CD (the original pressings on Arista, before Rhino stole the rights away from them). I remember whenever my family visited my aunt and uncle in Warren, Michigan when I was just a kid in the late 60's, my cousins would always be playing the vinyl album of "More of the Monkees" on either their small monaural record player or occasionally on their folks' big RCA TV/tuner/phono console (remember those?).

Rhino bought the rights from Arista, which bought Bell Record (US), which bought the Columbia Pictures record division (Colgems and Colpix).
