This is a Monkee takeoff on the classic William Jacobs horror tale. Having listened to The Monkees' playing and singing ""Goin' Down,"" the manager hires them and fires Mendrek, a broken-down magician. Pitying him, The Monkees console the magician, who relates in flashback - with Mike as The Regular Llama and Micky as young Mendrek - how, while searching for the unknown secrets in far Tibet, he acquired a very special monkey's paw, which the boys buy for $0.25. The paw starts working for The Monkees, who wish that their union dues were paid and the manager arrives and says he'll pay their dues with their first week's salary, and a 142% kickback on the cash loan. Mendrek's daughter reminds him of the paw's curse, but the magician feels that, having rid himself of the paw, his luck should immediately change.
