  • When Davy falls in love with the "sweet 16" Vanessa Russell he finds that he is a bit of a distraction to her, which results in her failing her history final. With the help from the boys, they help her pass her final and end up keeping their job.

    Even though this episode is number 10 in the release date order, it is in fact the pilot episode that was shot back in Novemeber of 1965. This is a great episode and makes you instantly fall in love with those zany Monkees. Although it is the pilot, you would never be able to tell. The boys' hair is shorter, but their talent is still as large as can be. I absoultely love the "I Wanna Be Free" sequence where Vanessa and the boys are having fun at the Kiddie Land amusement park. This episode has all the charm and hilarity of all the episodes to come. By watching this pilot episode, you can obvious see why The Monkees became and still are one of the biggest successes of our time.
