  • Trivia & Quotes
  • Quotes (3)

    • Micky: What did they do to Captain Queeg?
      Peter: Steal his strawberries.

    • Davy: Who keeps ringin' that bleedin' bell?

      (Later)

      Davy: Somebody's ringin' that bell again!

    • Micky: Peter! I thought you incited the men! What did you say?!?

      Peter: I said 'Ma-ma malburmba'.

      Micky: Ma ma ma ma.

    Notes (4)

    • As the Captain tells the boys to walk the plank, Micky's hand movement causes the parrot (on the Captain's shoulder) to nearly bite Micky's hand.

    • At one point, Davy exclaims, "Peter's so tough, 'e loves the sight of blood, 'e pours ketchup on everythin' 'e eats; even Cornflakes!", which is, of course, a satirical swipe at Kellogg's, one of The Monkees TV series' main sponsors.

    • Tag: Mike recovers from seasickness long enough to join Micky, Davy and Peter in the closing musical number: the stimulatingly psychedelic "Star Collector."

    • Features the songs: "Daydream Believer" and "Star Collector."

    Trivia (3)

    • In "Star Collector," there's a white wool hat almost in front of Mike.

    • It is odd that Mike suffers from seasickness when Peter says he gets it in the earlier season.

    • Mike appears in one scene early on (when the boys get on the ship), then disappears until the musical number.
