Who We're Following

Hello :] I'm not sure if I've asked this before, but why did Mike call people 'shotgun'? What was the significance ? bluemauriat

Hi there! Well, to our knowledge, this was solely a TV show thing (as in, Mike did not call people “shotgun” in real life). We don’t know of any significance to it, either…just that it was in the script. BUT…given that the only person Mike calls by that nickname seems to be Peter, we like to think that there’s some (unintentional or otherwise) Torksmithyness at work there. Yes indeed…

Some middle-aged Justus Monkees for your Thursday.

I know the Monkees stretch credibility sometimes, but does anyone really believe this?

NO

Considering that in “Hillbilly Honeymoon” he made out with Ellie Mae with barely a shrug of the shoulders—even after she called him by the wrong name—yeah, this does seem a teensy bit out-of-character…

Micky: I’m telling you guys…it was a UFO. It was bright and sparkly and I saw it fly right over me when I was out there!
Mike: Mick…you gotta keep off the grass, man. There’s no such thing as UFOs. It was probably a plane, come on now.
Peter: I believe you, man. That’s way far out. I gotta ask, though, totally serious: Do you think alien chicks have three boobs? That’d be hot…
Davy: I LOVE THESE BLOODY DOMINOES! *laughs* I can feel all the grooves in ‘em, yeah man! Dom—domin—*laughs* I just fucking love this game! YEAH, DOMINOES!

Posting this for iluvmonkees, who is having a rough night and asked for a cute gif:

…Because there may be something out there cuter than Peter Tork with a puppy, but we doubt it.

And here it is, ladies and gentlemen! Our wonderful FB fan Sherri Hansen has finally uploaded video of Micky smacking Peter on the ass during “Papa Gene’s Blues” in Tulsa, OK! Notice as well that Micky and Peter are also flirting like hell with each other throughout the entire clip. Oh, what a lovely day it is to be a Monkees fan…

ONE YEAR AGO, people…

Friendly reminder that the ’80s were a really, really fucking weird time for the Monkees:
