about

The true story of the 1965 adverts in 'Variety' and 'Hollywood Reporter' putting out the call for the formation of The Monkees!

The two ads were identical and read as follows:

“MADNESS!! AUDITIONS. Folk & Roll Musicians, Singers for acting roles in new TV series. Running parts for 4 insane boys, age 17–21.”

Ah-Oo .. Oo-Oo-Ooo ..

(Chorus):
Hollywood 6-5188 (Hollywood)
No time to turn away (turn away)
Madness is on display (on display)
Insane boys call today

Just call we'll put you through (put you through)
Show us what you can do (you can do)
We'll make your dreams come true
Ah-Oo .. Oo-Oo-Ooo ..

We gotta something to say
