The Sixth Position
Ballerina Kendall Chase and Madame Lucia Prince of the Giroux Ballet Company are guests at Robin's Nest during their stay in Hawaii and Magnum's services are 'donated' by Higgins. A number of people seem overly-interested in the beautiful dancer and an equal number of people would prefer to distract Magnum from his duties, particularly wealthy Elaine Sellmeyer who offers Magnum an exorbitant sum to help her. Events culminate in terror and Kendall's Achilles' hell becomes literally her heel.

There may be more. I got them at the late, lamented Ballet Shop in New York when I first discovered ballet. Unlike Arlene Croce's "Ballet Alert" piece in the New Yorker, even then I could tell these were satire

"In The Heat of the Night" had a ballet episode as well. It was filmed at our studio using some of our students (who didn't make it on camera). Ballet teacher with a former shady past was the topic.

(i LOVE the name "Nyetovich"!)
David, Micky and Peter are engaged to play really weird native instruments for the Druvanian National Ballet. Ivan slips microfilm in the toe of the slipper of his dancing partner, Natasha Pavlova. Natasha can’t bear dancing and rehearsing twenty-four hours a day, and hides in The Monkees’ instrument trunk, unbeknownst to the boys, who are kicked out of the theater by Nicolai, the ballet master, and Ivan, who can’t bear the sound of their weird music. The Monkees grab their trunk—Natasha hidden inside—and carry it with them. Ivan declares Natasha and the microfilm gone, but Nicolai insists Druvania will get it back at all costs, even at the expense of human life. Back at the pad, Natasha pops out and threatens David and Micky at gunpoint, while she falls in love with Peter. Micky gets hold of the pistol and threatens Natasha and Peter. Crying and sobbing, Natasha declares that this was her final chance to stay in America. Micky and David report to Nyetovich, the Ambassador, who denies of hearing of Natasha and has them thrown out. Nyetovich alerts Ivan by phone, who, along with Nicolai, comes to the pad, where Peter frantically avoids Natasha’s maniacal infatuations. Natasha hides in the trunk, while Peter opens the door and the spies, bent on breaking the door down, rush in and knock him down. He slumps unconscious, and they take him to the theater to be questioned.
Natasha warns to David and Micky that Peter will be tortured and forced to talk. Micky replies, “Talk?! Never. They can torture him, beat him, drug him; he’ll never talk! There’s only one torture he can’t withstand, oh, I pray they don’t use that…The Direct Question!” The boys overcome the risks of going on home territory and go to Peter’s rescue. In the guise of detectives, they declare to Nyetovich that they are from The BVD and investigating the disappearance of Natasha Pavlova, only to find that Nyetovich’s assignment coincides with theirs. Meanwhile, Ivan and Nicolai proceed to brainwash Peter, who advises that they use a good detergent (“New Reebersober’s Brain Detergent doesn’t fade, bleach, or shrink your brains!”); later, disguised as Cossacks, Micky and David are involved in a wild Russian dancing rehearsal, barely eluding Ivan. Recognizing who they really are, he send an ultimatum saying Peter Tork will die unless Natasha is returned for the night’s premiere, sending Natasha, Micky and David to the rescue.
There at the theater, Micky puts a glass to the wall and the three discover that Nyetovich has recovered the film and is preparing to do away with Peter at the end of Natasha’s solo. Ivan will leap into the air and a cymbal crash will be heard as soon as he lands, at which time Peter will be shot! Natasha prepares to don her chicken costume and mask for her “Dance of The Chicken” when she suddenly sprains her ankle, forcing Micky to take her place. Soon, three different romps commence: David jumps into the orchestra pit and does all he can to prevent the cymbalist from crashing his cymbals; Peter escapes Nicolai and takes on all comers, including Nyetovich, and a girl wrapped in a bathtowel, with swords, chalk, and a butterfly net; and Micky gives a hilarious performance onstage with Ivan, whom he prevents from taking that final leap into the air. The romps end with Nyetovich tied up and Ivan and Nicolai knocked unconscious. At the pad, David tells Natasha that the government has decided she can stay in America. Peter is happy to resume their romance, but Natasha, deciding that they are too different, presents her new love, Alexi—a Russian who looks just like Peter!
