The Monkees are back on basic cable

A mod American favorite has resurfaced.

Remember The Monkees? You had better (or at least should have absorbed one detail about them from a magazine story or parents' reminiscences).

Those among you who grew up obsessing about their reruns, what's your favorite episode of the absurd, surreal, slapstick-y 1960s sitcom starring America's most beloved prefab four?  When Mike runs for mayor? Or when Davy is held against his will to stop falling in love with girls but winds up dragging a chair chained to his leg across town to chase a girl? 

IFC has Davy Jones, Mickey Dolenz, Mike Nesmith and Peter Tork again, replayed today in an exquisite Memorial Day marathon, so let us know in the comments below, and we'll tell you when they're on and chat them up! After the Memorial Day kickoff, IFC will be featuring airings on Saturday and Sunday (in addition to those on FamilyNet and Antenna TV), starting Saturday, May 30.

Stream them here.
