Episode Summary

EDIT
Here Come the Monkees

The Monkees' unaired pilot episode Here Comes The Monkees was shot on 16mm black and white film and features segments of screen tests with Mike Nesmith and Davy Jones from October 1965, which, as series creatorRobert Rafelson describes in a voice-over, are "spontaneous and unrehearsed." At the end of these interviews, Rafelson says, "Well, those are some of The Monkees. And you never know when they'll turn up next."

The storyline footage would be reused in Episode #10 Here Comes The Monkees with the screen test segments moved to the end. The songs included in this pilot were demo recordings made by Tommy Boyce and Bobby Hart and none of The Monkees participated in their recording.

Songs include:
Theme (Boyce and Hart demo)
I Wanna Be Free (Boyce and Hart demo)
Let's Dance On (Boyce and Hart demo)
