** In one episode there's a joke contrasting Music/BobDylan and [[Series/{{Gunsmoke}} Marshal Matt Dillon]]. This is a little HilariousInHindsight because it's been speculated that Bobby Zimmerman might have taken his stage name in honor of Marshal Dillon but chose Dylan because it was a cooler spelling.[[note]]Dylan has {{Jossed}} this but has confirmed that he only liked the spelling of the name of Dylan Thomas and didn't really consider him an influence[[/note]]

* {{Revival}}: The 1987 series/band ''The New Monkees'', which was intended to make the franchise relevant to the {{MTV}} era, was a revival InNameOnly. It featured none of the original band members, and it had only one tenuous connection to the 60s project: the executive producer was Steve Blauner, studio manager of Rafelson and Schneider's Raybert Productions, the company that made the original series and ''Film/{{Head}}''. LoveItOrHateIt, ''The New Monkees'' failed as quickly as the "old" Monkees had succeeded.
