'''The Monkees''' were two things.

1. The stars of an Emmy Award-winning series which ran from 1966 to 1968 on Creator/{{NBC}}, revolving around a band called the Monkees. The series relied on a lot of pseudo-slapstick, along with well-polished pop music (written by folks like Music/NeilDiamond, Music/HarryNilsson and Music/CaroleKing), which made it well known and iconic. That page is located [[Series/TheMonkees here]].

2. An initially FakeBand assembled by the TV show's creator/producers, Bob Rafelson and Bert Schneider, to star in their project. That page is located [[Music/TheMonkees here]].
