Although The Monkees continued to release albums for a couple years after their TV show was cancelled, I've always considered the main period of popularity was during the run of the TV show 1966 to 68. It's interesting that after 45 years The Monkees still have a legion of devoted fans. The TV show was way off the wall, wild and silly but it retains a certain nostalgic charm when watching it today. And The Monkees recorded some songs that are considered pop music classics today. So hail to The Monkees, the 1960's was a great time for entertainment in America. Would be nice to go back to those days and live em again.
