    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.

    The second season was rushed into production immediately after the first one stopped filming, probably because Davy Jones was eligible for induction into the U.S. Army and the producers were afraid he would be drafted. When Jones was let off the hook due to being sole support of family, The Monkees - with plenty of episodes in the can - spent the summer touring and shooting videos for the completed episodes. When they resumed filming in the fall, producers Bob Rafelson and Bert Schneider were "kicked upstairs" to executive-producer status and Ward Sylvester was promoted from associate producer to producer.
