I love “The Monkees.” Both as a television series and as a band. The TV series fits very well into what I call the “Silly 60s.” Shows like “The Munsters,” “The Addams Family,” “Gilligan’s Island” and “Get Smart” embraced goofiness in a way you don’t see on television today.
“The Monkees” not only embraced silliness but also had fun with horror in the “Monstrous Monkee Mash” episode. For some reason it wasn’t a Halloween episode. It aired Jan. 22, 1968 and features a great musical montage of the band’s song “Goin’ Down.”
In short, Davy is lured to Count Dracula’s castle by his new girlfriend and is held captive by a spell she puts on him. The Count hopes to use Davy to regenerate himself. It’s up to Mickey, Peter and Mike to save him.
