Hey Hey We're the Monkees...

So everyone seems to think Tan Torkelson is a great name, and someone said that the Peter Tork dude from the group the Monkee's was actually Peter Torkelson. So of course, Mom had to bust out the movie maker...

(Note from Mom - these videos were taken while we TRY to clean for Thanksgiving, the dogs are always right there 'helping'.)

You're monkeys alright. I think Tan Torkelson must have had a little bit of that monkey juices to be yelling at my Joe the way he is. A belligerent drunk, clearly.

Joe! You and Tanner are doing a grrrrEAT job at helping your human mom, the biggest monkee, to clean up the house for Thanksgiving! I think my human needs some helpers like you two.

Does Tanner ever stop yapping?!

Sophie's Mum has got a lovely Daughter
Joe's in love with her and it's so rare
Tanner loves Miss Lill
Says He loves her still
But it is clear to us that Mom would like to clean

She wants to run her neat vacuum
Joe and Tanner really want to play
There are just too many things to do

If she finds a new stain on the carpet
Wonder just which one will take the blame
Well, it's clear enough, she has a lot to do, We'll make it up to her with lots of slurps and licks

We hope that you have a great Thanksgiving
The menu there will be beyond compare.
Weather will be fine, Sunshine will start at nine, Just don't forget to give Tan-ner the pumpkin pie.

Don't let on - Don't say it's cold back here
Just hope that Joe will ship that big bottle of beer

Sophie's Mom has got a lovely daughter

Great movie!! I think you two should be the new Monkees. We need a revival of that group. Maybe your dad can play drums for you and you two can sing and dance. Sounds like a winning TV show to me :)

Hey Hey you Monkees!

Loved the video! I was barking along. Mom is also a huge Monkees fan, been to concerts and met Peter a few years ago -- she thinks Tanner is cuter! (what a thing to say!! Oh!) She also remembers watching their TV show a million years ago. Hoo boy is she old.

Happy Thanksgiving!

The Brothers Stains do it again, although I think you're taking the Thanksgiving cleaning a little too seriously, Tan Torkelson.

All of that yelling and posturing makes me wonder if you really have taken after your namesake, the monkey Peter. I was under the impression he could be on Celebrity Rehab in real life.

By the way, my girl used to watch the Monkees every chance she got and was TOTALLY in love with Mickey the drummer! Thanks for the blast from the past.

Goober love,

Can we be in your band? We're very noisy and my ma ape calls us the Monkey House.

My favorite part of the video is when you guys are so wrapped up at yelling at each other that you don't notice the hand reach in and steal the bone.

ps. You guys are very helpful! You should rent yourselves out as a cleaning service.

Happy Thanksgiving, Joe and Tork!

There is no turkey at our house today. The Girl says we had Thanksgiving in October. I don't really think that's relevant.

Lordy. How many times must a dog try to tell their humans that THEY NEED BEEER, GIVE UP THE BEEEER!

Maybe mom was just trying to avoid doing housework by making a movie of you guys.

You guys are way too bouncy. And what's with the butts in the air all the time? Pee-wee went nuts over that video. Go figure.
