The entire series is heading to Blu-ray in January.
In an early announcement to retailers, Rhino is preparing 'The Monkees - The Complete TV Series' for Blu-ray on January 29. The limited edition set will be available exclusively through Monkees.com and is now up for pre-order!
On September 8, 1965, when producers Bob Rafelson and Bert Schneider placed a classified ad in The Hollywood Reporter seeking "4 insane boys," they had no idea that they were about to unleash Monkee-mania! But that's exactly what happened the following year when the first episode of "The Monkees" debuted on NBC on September 12, 1966.
On the 50th anniversary of that fateful casting call, Rhino is excited to announce the upcoming release of the entire series (58 episodes) in stunning high-definition Blu-ray for the very first time, painstakingly restored from the newly located original film negatives. The 10-disc Blu-ray collection with also include the 1968 cult-classic "HEAD," along with many never-before-seen outtakes from the film. It's the beginning of many surprises planned to celebrate The Monkees' 50th anniversary in 2016.
Specs have not been detailed yet, but supplements will include: 1969 TV Special "33 1/3 Revolutions Per Monkee"; The 1968 Monkees film "HEAD" in HD with never-before-seen outtakes; Bonus material, commentaries from all four Monkees, original Kellogg's Monkees commercials and more.
