A lot of people and journalists don’t know how to spell ‘demonstration’ so they use the word ‘riot’ cause it only has four letters.

Some middle-aged Justus Monkees for your Thursday.

“By now, you’ve read all about Micky’s and Davy’s exploits in England. 
But here’s one little story that didn’t cause much of a stir at the time, but I thought you might like to hear it. 
We stayed at a very large and famous hotel in London, which was quite naturally surrounded by hundreds of excited fans even before Micky arrived. This upset the manager and all the other patrons quite a bit and he was just about to ask us to leave, when Mick came up with an idea. 
First of all, he went down to the front door of the lobby and started talking to the girls. Naturally, they went wild, but within a few minutes he had them calmed down. He explained that he would sit in the lobby and they would line up quietly and come through and meet him one by one. 
Mick was there for four hours, shaking hands and kissing cheeks. He was a little tired, but very happy — there’s nothing he likes more than meeting fans. The girls were happy, the hotel manager was happy, the other guests were happy — the Mick had done it again!”

In honor of the late, great Arlene Martel—and because the last two days have been an unending vortex of suck and we need MORE HAPPY THINGS, DANG IT—here are Mike and Micky in the infamously hilarious outtake in their costumes from Monstrous Monkee Mash, trying their gosh darndest to Save the Texas Prairie Chicken. Watch and enjoy!

One interesting, little-known Robin Williams/Monkees factoid is that Robin Williams was considered for the role of The Riddler in the 1995 movie Batman Forever…and so was Micky Dolenz (the role ultimately went to Jim Carrey).

We’ve often compared the manic energy of Micky Dolenz (particularly on his commentary to the Daydream Believers biopic) to Robin Williams, but in truth, there can only be one Robin Williams, and no one will ever take his place. Still, one wonders what it would’ve been like if these two had ever had the opportunity to share the screen with each other…
