"Hey,hey We're the Monkees! (TV series)

For those that may not know; there's a station out there that started in Jan. 2011 called Antenna TV that airs many old shows from mostly the 50s through 80s. On weekend afternoons (5 PM Eastern time), they've aired The Monkees since the station started.

Note: their front page has been updated regarding Davy Jones' death; they'll be running a Monkees marathon this Saturday starting at 5 PM EST in memory of Davy Jones.

I don't think I watched all the episodes back in the day, but I do remember thinking the show was pretty funny.

All my female cousins cut his picture out of the magazines of the day and taped them to their walls.

He was quite the heart-throb in his day!

So you want to be a rock 'n' roll star?
Then listen now to what I say
Just get an electric guitar
Then take some time
and learn how to play
And with your hair swung right
And your pants too tight
It's gonna be all right
Then it's time to go downtown
Where the agent man won't let you down
Sell your soul to the company
Who are waiting there to sell plastic ware
And in a week or two
If you make the charts
The girls'll tear you apart

Yes, though unlike similar groups, the Monkees all had significant talents of their own, in some quite esoteric musical fields.
Despite their songs being written for them, on the albums played by others, they tired of this and started doing their own thing.
Culminating in the 1968 film 'Head', with the likes of Jack Nicholson behind the scenes. A bizarre mix of familiar Monkees, satire, weirdness, protest, a sort of proto Easy Rider without the straight story arc.
It bombed, though by then the Monkess were over anyway.

RIP Davy Jones

Back in the day they were known as the "Pre-Fab Four".

Sorry to see Davy Jones pass. The Monkees are a fond memory of my childhood.

There's also a similar station that runs old shows (Cannon, Perry Mason, the original Hawaii Five-0, Lost In Space, Gunsmoke, etc.) called MeTV. Check below-website for channel listings.

That's nothing. Back in either '68 or '69; my mother went to a Tom Jones concert in Boston and the opening artist was The Crazy World of Arthur Brown (known for the infamous single Fire). Talk about a serious mis-match in music genre.

My first exposure to Davy Jones was through Marcia Brady on The Brady Bunch and the sequel movie. I remember seeing this episode after school and I was so touched by this particular episode of the Brady Bunch.
Rest in peace!
You will be missed.

I grew up watching the Monkees and listening to their music! Of course, it was well into syndication in the late '80s. I forget what channel it used to be on then.

Someone mentioned casted bands. Well, now we have to put up with the likes of Big Time Rush -- more like a casted musical abomination if you ask me.

I loved the Monkees. They sang AND played musical instruments, and yes, they looked rather rediculous yet entertaining on their TV series. I like the episode of Family Guy where Peter and that cow tried to expose the cattle slaughter house for its cruelty towards cattle. They did a whole spoof on a scene from the TV show with "Pleasant Valley Sunday" playing in the background.

Off the top of my head, Davy did the lead vocals for Daydream Believer, A Little Bit Me/A Little Bit You, Look Out-Here Comes Tomorrow, I Wanna Be Free, Valleri and, of course, The Monkees' Theme

Actually, I don't.

As above, the first-run shows came out when I was quite young. I remember getting a few laughs out of them, but not really being a huge fan. Even back then, as an elementary school kid, my musical tastes ran more towards the Doors, the Yardbirds, the Animals and Janis Joplin. Later on it moved towards more prog rock bands like Tull, Yes, Crimson, Floyd, etc.

However, it really is just a matter of what you like. I hang out with some serious musicians that are my age and older, and some are serious fans of the Monkees.

So what. I had just turned a year old when the show first aired and the first time I actually saw the TV show (& remembered it) was on UHF reruns during the early-to-mid 1970s.

And even if one wasn't a fan of the Monkees nor followed them too much then or even now; one could easily tell which songs had Jones doing the lead vocals due to his prominent English accent.

I love that opening piano part.
This may sound silly but it was Marcia Brady that got me to appreciate Davy Jones and the Monkees.

By the way, I ate at Davy Jones rib house in Honolulu back in 2000.
Apparently some tourist didn't like it.

That's just it, even if one was either very young or not yet alive during The Monkees hey-day (both the show and the songs); if one watched The Brady Bunch, that episode in particular, one gets at least to hear to Davy Jones' voice in song. Most likely, the parents who watched that show with their kids, depending on their age, might've commented that Davy used to be part of a group called The Monkees that disbanded a few years earlier.

Note: Davy Jones was also on a 1973 episode of Scooby Doo Movies in which he played himself. That was when I first heard of him.
