The Monkeys, not The Monkees

We have been receiving an incredibly high volume of traffic since yesterday.  We didn't realize why (since we had not posted in a while) until we heard the sad news that Davey Jones of The Monkees had passed away.   We send purrs to his family.  He died far too soon. 

Even though we're all Monkeys, they spell their band name with two 'e's.  To visit their site, click HERE!



Mommy is a fan of the other Monkees, but claims that is not the reason she calls us that.  Delilah and I are even more confused than we used to be!  Here is a rerun of our Friday Funnies comic from a few years ago.  Sweet Pea and Gabriel's Daddy did all the drawing:

Awww of course The Monkees, the Monkeys! It was a shock this morning reading about Davy Jones - we love their songs - Daydream Believer is such a sweet song!

There are the monkeys that screech, then the monkees who sing, and also the Monkeys who purr? No wonder you're confused!

I wonder if people coming over to about the Monkee's were all confused, wondering when they turned into a cat band..

That is a funny comic your dad did. He's very talented too. Real monkeys can be a little scary, but we love you Monkeys & the Monkees too!

So sad about Davy Jones. He was still so young. :(

We're fans of the Monkees, but even bigger fans of The Monkeys!

Clooney said...

You folks are our favorite Monkeys! Love the cartoon.

We would never have thought the Monkees would be confused with the Monkeys...but we can totally understand. WE are always glad to see you.

Monkeys or Monkees,However you spell it, I love 'em both. Interesting that you are getting traffic from that, but perhaps you will pick up some new subscribers!

Cory said...

Mom was a huge fan of the Monkees when she was a kitten...and now we are all fans of the Monkeys!

We heard that Davy Jones was a cat lover so it's purrfectly ok that his fans found your page.
