The Monkees TV show returned to the airways on September 13, 1969 on CBS.
These records were created as a marketing tie-in to promote the
Saturday morning show and started showing up in grocery stores in late 1969.
Each cardboard record contained one of four songs,
with a number stamped on it telling us which one you are getting.
So altogether there are 12 records.
And inside(!) a special coupon wherein you could send $1.50 plus 2 Alpha Bits box tops
to score The Monkees Golden Hits, featuring, you guessed it, those same 12 songs,
but now on vinyl. The coupon expired on June 30, 1971.
