Colgems Formats Part 3-Cereal Box Records

Monkees cereal box records found on the back of Post cereal boxes came upon the scene in 1969, when the show became a staple of Saturday morning television.

There were three designs, all pictured here. Notice that the likeness of Peter Tork is missing on these records. He left the group to pursue other interests in 1969, and the group continued as a threesome until Mike Nesmith left in late 1969 (he did stay on to fulfill some contracts, including one that the band had with Nerf products).

Micky Dolenz and Davy Jones stayed on through 1970, and even recorded a single together under their own names until 1970. They they went their separate ways until 1975, when Dolenz, Jones, Boyce and Hart came together.
