The Spy Who Came From The Cool~

*Billy Curtis (the midget who asked for red maracas) was one of the Munchkins in the 1939 movie "The Wizard of Oz". He was the Father of Munchkin Land. He was one of the reasons why Judy Garland said that the Munchkins were "little drunks". Supposedly, he made several passes at her to which she responded "mother wouldn't approve"(Thanks to Kim Boatman)

*When the CIS is watching the tapes, how did they film Micky from inside the house when they were at the door

* The end-credits song listing notwithstanding, this episode featured Saturdays Child instead of Clarksville

*When the CIS chief says he can save 3 of the 4, all but Peter immediately rush for chairs. Mike consoles Peter by saying, "Well, I guess we're just gonna have to form a trio; we're gonna miss you, ol' buddy." Hmmm Peter was the first to leave the group, and they did form a trio

Ironically, in the next episode, "The Monkees In Ghost Town, they were! (Got this from somewhere not sure where, lemme know if you know!)

 

Monkees In Ghost Town~

*In Monkees In Ghost Town I noticed that the two guys are named George and Lenny and their characterization is similar to that of George and Lenny in Of Mice and Men. Also in the book Lenny has a dead mouse in his pocket. Lenny in the episode does too

*During the romp in the jail cell you can see the guys have a real baseball and baseball bat, where did they get that from if they had to use Lenny's shovel and bouncy ball?

*Why doesn't Peter play the piano?

*How did Lenny and George get to the town since there is no other cars there

 

Don't Look A Gift Horse In The Mouth~

*Noticed that Davy sometimes doesn't make sense? Example: In "Don't Look A Gift Horse In the Mouth", Mr. Babbitt accuses the Monkees of having a dog in the house. In reality, they have a horse. When Davy says "A dog? This is a *horse*!" Mike replies "No, no, he thought he *heard* a dog in here!" Davy says "Now, how can a dog sound like a horse?" think about it, it doesn't make sense! (I got this from http://www.angelfire.com/music2/monkeecentral/noticeandwonder.html Thanks!)

*Mike says "hey i think he likes it" before the horse takes a sip of the root beer soup

*"Ms. Acardian" asks at the end if she has to give the general the ring back, but he never gave her one

*when Davy + everyone are running on the grass with Vanessa she has dirt or something all over her pants, then right after that scene when they are running to Kiddie Land its all gone.

*when Mike puts Davy on the uhh game thing you hit with the hammer... Davy has his hat on... when he hits the top its gone.

*When Ronnie and Miss Cartwright are having lunch at Jacques he says "you look beautiful tonight" but its only afternoon

*Peter's teeth look a little weird during "I'm A Believer"

*When they are playing spin the bottle, after the bottle flies to the door to Davy when Peter says "It always happens this way" hes really close to the girl. Then they zoom out and hes like a foot away from her

*Mike announces the song "You Just May Be The One" as "You May Just Be The One"
