Before the dissolution of the independent reissue label Rhino Records, they were able to corner the market on all things related to the Monkees. This 21-volume VHS format box set gathers all 58 episodes of the Monkees' landmark television sitcom, their hourlong prime time 33 1/3 Revolutions Per Monkee special, the first — and never before broadcast — version of Here Come the Monkees (pilot episode), and two short adverts for Kellogg's breakfast foods (one of the program's original sponsors). Producers Bert Schneider and Robert Rafelson's initial inspiration was to create a weekly made-for-TV version of the Beatles' Hard Day's Night.
