'He who eat cookie screw up formula somethin' terrible'
4 January 2014 | by kevinolzakSee all my reviews

"Monkey Chow Mein" benefits from the return of Joey Forman, recently seen as "Captain Crocodile," and Gene Dynarski (BATMAN, STAR TREK), trying to top each other as comic Oriental villains, taking a cue from Vito Scotti's hamming in "Case of the Missing Monkey." Peter's love of fortune cookies get The Monkees involved with foreign agents and secret formulas, with the authorities represented by Dave Barry and Mike Farrell (MASH). After both Micky and Peter are kidnapped, Mike and Davy become 'Monkeemen,' but fail to find their way to the kitchen! The lone song is a third reprise of Peter's "Your Auntie Grizelda." Broadcast no. 26 (Mar 13 1967), "Monkee Chow Mein" was 27th in production, the first to be shot in '67 (Jan 5-6).
