Fabulous 208 was a weekly British pop music magazine, and here Micky Dolenz is featured on the cover of its November 11, 1967 issue in a picture taken during The Monkees' 1967 summer concert tour:
The Monkees appeared on the NBC comedy program Laugh-In, hosted by comedians Dan Rowan and Dick Martin, on October 6, 1969, five days before the release of the group's eighth album, The Monkees Present. In this clip, Micky, Davy, and Michael participate in the "Joke Wall" segment that was featured at the end of almost every episode of Laugh-In:
More clips of The Monkees' appearance on Laugh-In can be seen below:

Michael's familiar blonde Gretsch guitar (below, left) has been at his side since returning to the concert stage with The Monkees in 2012. It's not, however, the original blonde Gretsch that Michael owned in the 1960s, but a reproduction. His current blonde Gretsch guitar is a twelve string Country Classic I. It was custom made for him by Gretsch when he did a concert for them in the 1990s at the NAMM Show, a music products industry trade event. This was also the guitar used during recording sessions for the 1996 Monkees album, Justus.
The Gretsch sunburst guitar (below, right), reminiscent of the Gretsch Viking guitar Michael played in the 1960s, was given to Nez by Andrew Sandoval in 2013. Michael played both guitars during the 2018 and 2019 "Mike & Micky Show" tour. (And that's pedal steel extraordinaire Pete Finney in the background of the photo below!)
If you are wondering what happened to Michael's original blonde Gretsch, it was stolen in the 1970s (along with Michael's white Gibson guitar, most famously seen during the "Circle Sky" live sequence in Head). Nez spoke about his affection for these instruments on Facebook in 2010, as well as his desire to have them returned. "I know they are out there still and I miss them and would like to have them back after all these years. Whoever has ended up with them, please return them, no questions asked. They were and are an important part of my life."
In honor of the 50th anniversary of The Monkees' 1969 NBC television special, 33 1/3 Revolutions Per Monkee, here is an article that appeared in a teen magazine in 1969:
