  • Peter,Micky and Mike gets conned into taking dance lessons,it's up to Davy to save the day!!!

    Martin Van Buren would be proud,wink wink! As the answer to the question that sends Peter to a life time contract at Rolando's Dance A Go-Go.

    This classic epiosde works in many ways,some really funny examples of the craziness the show is known for,as Micky goes off stage to talk to the writers.

    The musical number "I'll Be Back On My Feet",happens to be reworked and put on a later album,this is where we see The Monkees in various ways of dancing.

  • TRIVIA (5)

    • Mike Nesmith's mother, (and the inventor of Liquid Paper) Bette Nesmith Graham can be seen in the group of ladies taking the dance lessons. (She is wearing a dark blue dress with her hair up.) And in the romp, she is seen dancing with her son, Michael.

    • Some of the music that was played as Davy was dancing at his audition can be heard in other episodes.

    • Renaldo goes from smiling to not smiling between shots when Davy is auditioning.

    • During the scene where Micky visits the writers to get a new idea, the paper that the writers use change color between shots. When the paper is in the typewriter, the paper is white. In the next scene it is handed to Micky and is clearly yellow in color.

    • Some of the women in the dance studio scene at the end are shown leaving and then are seen later in the dance studio as though they had never left.
