Apparently inspired by The Beatles' "A Hard Day's Night" - The Monkees comedy, TV series was specifically geared to the fluffy, frivolous, teeny-booper mind-set that prevailed in the mid-1960's.

Carefully putting a light-hearted spin on the on-going story of 4 Los Angeles rock'n'rollers who were struggling to get their big break in the recording business - The Monkees were neatly groomed as a wholesome quartet where these tin-armoured heroes often played amateur sleuths who gallantly rescued damsels in distress whenever duty called.

Setting fashion trends all across the nation with their mop-top haircuts and form-fitting trousers - This TV show regularly showcased The Monkees' most recent hit songs which were written by Tommy Boyce and Bobby Hart.

Anyway - From a strictly nostalgic point of view - The Monkees' TV show was definitely something of a bona-fide curiosity-of-sorts when it came to the overall ambivalence of mid-1960's pop music history.
