    For everyone's information (& to persuade those still on the fence about buying it) Here's a list of episodes on "The Monkees Season One" DVD set that retained their original network end-credit sponsorship ("W/Tag" means that it also includes the post-opening theme/pre-opening credit "Brought to you by..." tag):

    Disc 1:
    Royal Flush (Kelloggs)
    Monkee See, Monkee Die (Black Label by Yardley)
    Monkees vs. Machine (Kelloggs)
    Success Story (Black label by Yardley)

    Disc 2:
    Monkees In A Ghost Town (Kelloggs W/Tag)
    The Chaperone (Kelloggs W/Tag)

    Disc 3:
    One Man Shy (Kelloggs)
    Dance, Monkee, Dance (Black Label by Yardley)
    Son of a Gypsy (Black Label by Yardley)
    I Was a Teenage Monster (Kelloggs W/Tag)

    Disc 4:
    Monkees in the Ring (Kellogg w/Tag)
    Monkees at the Circus (Kelloggs)
    Monkees a la Mode (Kelloggs W/Tag)

    Disc 5
    Monkees Chow Mein (Kelloggs)
    Monkees On the Line (Kelloggs w/Tag)
    Monkees in Manhattan (Kelloggs w/Tag)

    Disc 6
    Monkees on Tour (Kelloggs w/Tag)

    Remember, these versions wont appear on TV anytime soon ;-)

    One question: could these versions of the credits qualify as easter eggs, since Rhino never Listed "Original sponsor credits" as a special feature?

    I am guessing that the Screen Gems logo isn't present on the dvd's?

    Another reason the Screen Gems logo isn't on these discs is simple...Rhino now owns the copyright on The Monkees. 'nuff said?

    Ok, Back to my orginal inquiry (Which no one seems to answered yet): could these versions of the credits qualify as easter eggs, since Rhino never Listed "Original sponsor credits" as a special feature? Anyone? Bueller?
