The Monkees is an American comedy television show that is based upon the lives of the popular musical group known as the Monkees. The four members of the band are the stars of the program and each half-hour episode usually features a celebrity guest star. The action is fast-paced and the humor is slapstick in nature on this show. Many episodes of The Monkees humorously focus on the band members' attempts to earn money. They regularly come up with outlandish ideas for raising money and are often thwarted by various villains. On a regular basis the Monkees encounter adventures while they drive around in their customized Monkeemobile car. In one episode of this show, the Monkees prevent an invasion of space creatures and in other episodes they rescue a princess and tangle with a mad scientist. These are just some of the zany situations the stars of this show become involved in. Each episode of this program features the Monkees performing at least one or two of their songs in video format. Live concert footage and interviews with the band members are also frequently featured on The Monkees.
