Ref: Monkees Vs Machine, Film & TV Vault:
In what instrument does Madame Olinsky put the microfilm?
Red maracas, or if you’re a short Manc
morrocas. Of course a short man was to pick them up which meant hilarity would
ensue or it would have been a very short eppi.

Ref: Success Story, can you guess? Go On………. Film & TV
In the episode, "The Case Of The Missing Monkee" what is the name of the professor and what kind of scientist is he?
Professor Milo Schnitzler. He was a Nuclear Scientist. However on the actual eppi it doesn’t say what kind of scientist he is, I was prompted to make sure after a query came up over it and nowhere did it say what field. So if you said Nuclear we gave you points as it is out there on the great void known as the internet, if you left it blank you also got points as you were right or just got plain lucky not knowing.
Ref: Case Of the Missing Monkee, Manufactured Image,
Film & TV Vault:

What song on "Headquarters" did Peter especially want to sing?
Early Morning Blues & Greens

Pisces, Aquarius, Capricorn, and Jones, Ltd.

Ref: Duh, all the rest of the ones were put on vinyl. Justus is the only one not deemed worthy of vinyl production, those guys at Rhino can so suck.

LIFE AFTER MONKEES:

Ref: Monkeemania, Monkees Tale, Daydream Believers The Monkees Story, there are thousands of places I’m sure.
Who is Julie Driscol and what does she have to do with the Monkees?
She was a British singer, who was in Brian Augers The Trinity [can you see where we’re going yet?] She played the weird psycho looking woman in………….. 33 1/3 Revolutions Per Monkee [oh yes we did it again and will until the abomination can offer no more.] She’s the one with the cool makeup and talking belly button, who sings I’m A Believer with Micky, watches Peter & Davy, who shoots one of the Mikes. Who is the temptress with the apple, who declares the whole thing a bloody shambles! [I can think of a lot of things to call it but none are printable and none are as kind as shambles.]
Ref: 33 1/3 itself, any site or book worth it’s salt
will mention who was in these things, she’s a well known singer in the UK and if
you’ve ever watched Ab Fab [I’m sure you get it over in America hence the
Roseanne appearance of Patsy and Edina] she sang the title theme This Wheels On
Fire. Or look up this site:
Match the Monkee to the Ex-wife / girlfriend / partner by placing corresponding letters next to Monkee names, next to corresponding partners. (Unfortunately, the Monkees' names can be used more than once.)
Ref: You should know this it’s basic Monkees knowledge it’s in plenty of books [Monkeemania, Total Control], on plenty of sites [Psycho-jello] & documentaries/ interviews [E! Hollywood True Stories].
Which Monkee is a grandpa? (As Of The Quiz Release Date)
Ref: Total Control pg 244, he has 3, all Christian's, as in his son as how would I know their religious preferences? Davy has stated he will be but it hasn’t happened just yet it’ll happen in July when he’s saying he’s the first Monkee gramps at concerts he’s wrong, if you want to dispute it go to interviews where he keeps saying there were only 56 Monkees eppis. The man is NOT that good at recalling things.
How many Monkee children are there?
There are 15 of them, busy, busy Monkees, don’t you guys have good TV or something?
Ref: Again it’s a basic one lots of sites, zines etc. But count them and see [not in particular order I’m lucky to remember them off the top of my head half the time:
Mike - Christian, Johnathon, Jason, Jessica.
Micky - Ami, Georgia, Emily, Charlotte.
Davy - Thalia, Sarah, Jessica, Annabel.
Peter - Hallie, Ivan, Erica.
[Of course there may be more but we don’t know about them, Jason was a well kept secret for a time.]
What Monkees song is in the newly released movie "Vanilla Sky"?
The Porpoise Song [Theme From Head]
Ref: Go see the film or buy the soundtrack, check out here:
http://www.vanillasky.com/flash_site/index.html , lots of zines have told you as have alerts and Phil’s own board. Oh and by the way all the music is on the film for a particular reason so said Cameron Crowe, it’s significant………. Well he said it I didn’t.
Match the Monkee that guest starred to each show. Each Monkee can be used more than once. (Place the corresponding Monkee Letter(s) next to each show).
Ref: Sites who can be bothered to list Monkee
Monkees director Jim Frawley was nominated for an Emmy for Best Director for a Comedy Series in 2001 for which show?

At some concerts this summer Peter's band Shoe Suede Blues opened for the Monkees, but Peter was in disguise. What was his character's name?
Guitar Beltway Slim
Ref: Monkee Business Fanzine #97 June 2001, plus other zines and postings on boards of concert reviews, alert notices & The online Propeller Interview:
He states it was fun and that a fair few people didn’t know it was him……only if they don’t have access to an internet site or live under a rock cause there’s no way the disguise will have been that great.
