  • NOTES (5)


    • When the boys change into the Monkee Men, Davy puts his hands over his ears, Micky puts his hands over his eyes, and Peter puts his hands over his mouth. It is suppose to represent the three wise monkeys who see no evil, hear no evil, and speak no evil.

    • When the boys change from their Monkee Men outfits to their street clothes they change in a telephone booth, just like Superman. Peter even wears glasses like Clark Kent.
