Franchise: The Monkees
The Monkees were two things.1. The stars of an Emmy Award-winning series which ran from 1966 to 1968 on 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 Neil Diamond, Harry Nilsson and Carole King), which made it well known and iconic. That page is at:Fake Band assembled by the TV show's creator/producers, Bob Rafelson and Bert Schneider, to star in their project. That page is at:
- Daydream Believer (One of their hits is the Trope Namer)
- Monkees Equals Monkees
- The New Monkees, a short-lived 80s band/series featuring an all new and all different foursome.
