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.
