Micky and his ex-wife, Trina, are photographed on September 5, 1986 as they arrive at the MTV Video Music Awards. The Monkees performed "Daydream Believer" and "I'm a Believer" live on the broadcast that evening.
All four Monkees took part in filming a Christmas medley music video for MTV in early December 1986. The video featured Mike as "Santa Claus" and was in heavy rotation on the cable network during the holiday season. After filming, the quartet hosted a party at a Manhattan nightclub to celebrate the end of a very successful year for The Monkees.
