Mistaking The Four Monkees

Louise Criscione, KRLA Beat, 10 September 1966

JUST PICTURE one very pretty princess who is about to become queen and one very jealous uncle who is determined to do her in before she reaches her eighteenth birthday. Then add four longhaired, unknown pop musicians who live together in a small but "tastefully" decorated apartment. The plot? Save the queen. The show? The Monkees. Result? A cross between Batman and Help.
