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!

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.

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. 😍

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

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).

You got 11 out of 11
Hmm. Impressive… impressive, indeed. Well played!
I have a problem with question #4.
The answer was NOT a 'cop series'. NONE of the answers were of a 'cop series'.
MeTV, I am disappointed. Try to do better, in the future.
You're right! All the answers were P.I. shows.πŸ˜†
