  • Notes (24)

    • Goof: After the holdup, as Micky, Mike and Davy race back to the crook's hideout. Davy can be seen dropping some money.

    • Here Micky Dolenz gets to exhibit directing skills for the first time in coaching Robert Michaels (Cop); he would direct Michaels again in his second showing as a "Cop" on The Monkees in Episode No. 58, "Mijacogeo" (a.k.a. "The Frodis Caper"), The Monkees' series finale--and Dolenz's directorial debut! Little did Micky suspect that this little chore would later on set the pace for his newfound career behind the camera as a director!

    • The sign on The Monkees' table in court says, "Vote Innocent."

    • Notice Peter with a Sherlock Holmes hat, pipe and magnifying glass as he attempts to uncover the evidence that will eventually exonerate his mates. Micky was previously disguised as Holmes in a dream sequence in Episode No. 2, "Monkee See, Monkee Die".

    • In the wake of The Summer Of Love, "The Picture Frame" (a.k.a. "The Bank Robbery") marks the first utterance of the word "psychedelic." Other mentions occur in Episode No. 41, "The Card-Carrying Red Shoes", No. 45, "The Monkees In Texas", No. 49, "The Monkees Watch Their Feet", and No. 57, "The Monkees Blow Their Minds". And the black and white musical number of "Daily Nightly", which appears at the end of "The Monkees Blow Their Minds" and Episode No. 48, "Fairytale", ends with Micky Dolenz saying, "Psychedelic!"

    Trivia (2)

    • Mike can be seen making faces in the start of "Randy Scouse Git".

    • Maybe considered a goof, during the "Randy Scouse Git" video, there's a shot of a crew man within the overhead lights.
