It was bound to happen sometime and for in January 1968 it did…The Monkees aired a spook comedy episode. Lured to a Transylvania castle by a hot Goth chick, Davy is in danger of being turned into a vampire. When his three bandmates come to rescue him, they encounter The Wolfman, Frankenstein’s monster and the Mummy. It shouldn’t happen to the Count Five, let alone the Monkees!
