Prod: Bones Howe Production Notes: The Monkees went to production on 33 1/3 RPM a day following their last concert as a quartet at The Festival Hall in Osaka, Japan.

NBC went on strike just as the 33 1/3 Revolutions Per Monkee cast and crew were to commence recording, thus forcing them to switch taping locations to Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer's studios, where production was done on the fly through remote trucks parked right outside.

The Monkees were none too happy with Jack Good and Art Fisher's script for 33 1/3, calling it "too sloppy, too fairy-tale like," while David Jones felt that, for a TV special starring The Monkees, it emphasized rather largely on its guest cast than the group itself!

For the Listen To The Band climax, Jack Good sent a couple of buses down to Sunset Strip to round up about 100 hippies (free people!) to comprise a live audience.

Monkee guest Rip Taylor ("The Monkees On The Wheel", "Mijacogeo", a k a , "The Frodis Caper") can be seen in a cameo during the Listen To The Band sequence.

The Monkees' Peter Tork reportedly suffering from exhaustion bought out his Monkees contract at the end of 33 1/3's production.

The Monkees would not be seen on network TV as a foursome again for 28 years.

Trivia: Jerry Lee Lewis previously starred as Iago in Jack Good's stage production, Catch My Soul--a rock and roll version of Shakespeare's Othello.
