Frank Zappa made his legendary guest appearance on this, the penultimate episode of The Monkees. Burgess Meredith also appears in a cameo. Frequent Monkees guest star Monte Landis is the sinister Oracullo, and longtime Monkees director Jim Frawley moved from behind the camera to play Oracullo's assistant, Rudy.
This photograph of The Monkees was taken in November 1968 during the promotional tour for their feature film, Head.
The Monkees' concerts in New York City during their 1967 summer tour were a particular highlight, grossing hundreds of thousands of dollars and playing to 36,000 people over three nights.
