    Goof (continuity error): In a number of second-season episodes, Micky's hairstyle changes back and forth from a straight hairdo to a curly "permed" look. This was due to the fact that second-season episodes were filmed at two different times, the spring of 1967 (when a number of the actual episode storylines were filmed) and then later that fall (during which time all the song performances were filmed). During the summer break, Micky let his hair grow out. The difference is perhaps most notable in the episode "It's a Nice Place to Visit," when at one moment Micky is performing a song with his hair curled, and is then seen leaving the stage with his hair straight.

    The opening title sequence seen in syndication is from the second season (it's used for the first-season episodes as well). The producers redid the sequence to include clips from "The Monkees on Tour" (the first-season finale) and even some second-season episodes such as "The Devil and Peter Tork" before they even aired. In the final three episodes of the second (and last) season, three of the Monkees invited special musical guests onto the show. Davy Jones talked to Charlie Smalls about soul, Michael Nesmith interviewed Frank Zappa and vice versa, and Micky Dolenz introduced a song by Tim Buckley. Peter Tork had planned to do a similar item with Janis Joplin but this never came about.
