Davy Jones Dead: Top 11 Monkees Moments (VIDEO)

The Monkees were the first tailor-made TV band, thanks, in part, to their dashing frontman Davy Jones. Sadly, Jones recently passed away at the age of 66.

"The Monkees" may have only lasted just two seasons, but the success of the show spawned national tours and 11 studio albums. Jones, the lead singer -- and resident tambourine player -- was featured in some the the group's biggest hits, including "Daydream Believer" and "I Wanna Be Free."

To honor his memory -- and one of the funniest group of 'Monkees' in show business -- HuffPost TV is taking a look back at some of the groups finest TV moments. From the slightly comical to the down-right absurd, see Jones at his best with the greatest Monkees moments in the slideshow below.
