The Prince and the Pauper

#1 - The Prince and the Pauper

The Monkees Season 1 - Episode 21

A spoof of the Mark Twain novel: "The Prince and the Pauper". When The Monkees audition for an Embassy Ball, Count Myron and his aide Max realize that Davy is a double for Prince Ludlow, 17 year-old heir apparent to the throne. The prince tells Davy that, according to the terms of his nation's constitution, if he is not wed before his 18th birthday, the throne will pass to Count Myron. As they fence, Count Myron and Max are impressed by their scheme to keep Ludlow single by keeping him away from all women and the ones who pay no mind to them will be driven off by the prince's shyness. Myron tells Max he has told Wendy Forsythe, who met Ludlow on the Riviera and took a liking to him, that the prince was a sly, malicious, sadistic pathological liar, in hopes of discouraging her from marrying him. Fortunately, this scheme proves to be a fatal flop, for Wendy comes to see the prince, and is announced by the Courtier, who has a habit of breaking his cane. Too shy to meet her, Ludlow asks Da

Rx for Martian

#4 - Rx for Martian

My Favorite Martian Season 1 - Episode 16

Martin can make it back to Mars since Mars has deviated from its regular orbit temporarily and is thus closer to Earth than usual. Martin has a 10 hour window of opportunity. Just as he is about ready to leave, he slips down the stairs and sprains his ankle, which also sprains his disappearing antenna. Mrs. Brown immediately calls an ambulance to the scene. When the ambulance physician takes Martin's vital signs, they rush him to the hospital since his vital signs aren't "human". The intern at the hospital has the same reaction. Martin knows that to get them to discharge him from the hospital, he needs to appear humanly normal and thus does everything he can to have normal human vital signs. He passes that test, but when the doctor requires a fluoroscope, Martin is worried since the gamma rays from which will make him explode. Tim manages to take the fluoroscope for Martin, but the doctors keep Martin in the hospital to figure out why the fluoroscope shows that he has the body of a 20-year old. With one hour to spare, Martin regains the use of his disappearing antenna and manages to escape from the hospital. Just as he is ready to leave Earth for the second time, Martin slips down the stairs once again and sprains his other ankle. Nothing can help him this time and he misses his opportunity to get home to Mars. But Martin surmises that home is where you hang your hat, and that just happens to be Earth for the time being.

Poor Little Rich Cat

#14 - Poor Little Rich Cat

My Favorite Martian Season 1 - Episode 15

The stupidest idea Martin has heard of since he's been on Earth: Rosemary Willis leaving her cat, Max, $650,000 in her will. Morton Beanbecker, the lawyer for the estate, is threatening Tim with a lawsuit if he continues to editorialize about the stupidity of the will and deceased Rosemary Willis. However, Beanbecker also mentions that Mrs. Willis wrote a subsequent will leaving her estate to a children's orphanage, that will which was either never signed or hidden. Martin reads his mind that he really wants the second will to be found despite his threatening words to Tim. Tim and Martin find out that Max's trustees are Rosemary's sister, Aggie, and Aggie's husband, Charles. As Aggie and Charles are lavishing money on Max and themselves in the process, Martin and Tim think Aggie and Charles hid the second will. However Max tells Martin himself that he is miserable with all the money, and it was he himself who hid the second will only because Rosemary did forget to sign it. Max leads Martin to the will. Beanbecker and Martin pour through legal books to find precedent to overturn the first will, without success. As Aggie says she hears from Rosemary in her sleep, they decide to hold a séance, where Rosemary - really Martin - will tell Aggie that she wants the money turned over to the orphanage. The ever obliging younger sister Aggie does as she's told.
