Thoughts From The Other Monkees:
Mike: "Davy is a ball of fire. He is always energetic, always alert and always on the go"
Peter: "Somehow or other Jonsey got to my heart. I don't know why, because I don't like him much. Sometimes he's great to hang with and sometimes he's very difficult"
Micky: "stylish, very talented, very short, puckish, unselfish, somewhat vain, congenial, streetwise and one of the nicest men I have ever known"
Great Davy Quotes: "I am standing up!", "It's not about age, it's about life", "Ow Mike that got me right in the kidneys", "No Hansel, sweets make me break out", "One more remark like that and I'll hit you with me purse", "There's an eye in there man", "Mike, I just saw a man talking to a popsicle", "You must be joking", "You must be out of your birds",
"If you see one Monkees show you've seen them all", "Your eyes are like cupcakes floating in a sea of sour cream" and "What is he- the World's youngest looking midget"
Misc. Info: He was one of the biggest teen idols of all time and was the most popular Monkee in the 60's. He's also known to get stars in his eyes, plays a pretty mean tambourine, has a tendency to dress in drag and is constantly filing his nails.
His most memorable acting moment was when he felt guilty about Vanessa failing her history final (drama) and when he heard Toto's Psychological warfare in "Monkee Chow Mein" (comedy).
Final Comments: "No, he's amazing. I'm incredible."
