Last week I saw some Tikis on Sesame Street accompanied by some exotica-esque (more in the way of Afro-Cuban) music. Featured were an authentic looking Marquesan or Tahitian Tiki and a more pop-cultural looking Moai. I wouldn't be surprised if the artist who created the Moai was one of our own... ahem,... please come forth!

Having 4 kids means I get to watch a lot of kids TV. Right now I'm watching the new episode of Backyardigans and it's all about surfing and tiki! The main charecter, Pablo, is driving around in his dune buggy trying to find Tiki Beach so he can ride the perfect wave. But nobody will tell him where it is because he doesn't have enough "rad" moves. Pablo is also wearing a very cool Moi pendant around his neck. Other charecters sport aloha shirts and surfboards.

I'll post again when the episode is over!

Ok, it ended with Pablo and friends finding Tiki Beach. Tiki Beach is a surfers paradise complete with a giant 40 foot moi statue facing the water. Then they all went surfing and completed several rad moves including The Run Around, The Funkadilly, The Triple Jump and The Tiki Wacky.

Here's the "Surf's Up" episode page.

Okay. This is weird. I just saw tikis in an MTV commercial from 1990. I was watching my old copy of Crowded House Unplugged. It included a commercial for Martha Quinn's return to MTV, and there was a shot of some moais in the background for one brief moment.

Last week's episode of Two and a Half Men featured a scene inside a bar that had big tikis and a nautical theme.

I too saw the Tiki Beach episode of the Backyardigans. My sister-in-law gave us a call Saturday morning and I switched it on. Liberal use of the word "Tiki" throughout. I especially liked how the show is instilling the old 1960s music standards like "Guantanamera" into pre-schoolers' heads by changing the lyrics into simple songs they can sing along to.

My little nieces are now asking me to get them tiki pendants. The fact that preschoolers are just now getting into tiki, and that stores like Big Lots and Kohls are introducing larger lines of tiki merchandise each year, leads me to believe that this current wave of tiki resurgence (good or bad) is nowhere near over yet.

Just watched a old episode of Landscapers challenge. It was a tiki themed back yard and showed the homeowner and designer shopping at Oceanic arts.

I saw the same episode - extremely cool to see the world becoming a more tiki place, one well designed backyard at a time.

I actually have seen tiki a couple of times on various HGTV shows.

I found myself watching a rerun of "The Nanny" and saw some tikis. In the episode, Brian Setzer shoots a video in the house and the set is decorated with giant tikis.

I just saw a "Gilmore Girls" rerun with a fabulous home tiki bar in it. Actually, I think the whole interior of the house was tiki. Blue walls, mugs, aquarium...the owner of the house called it the "Oasis." It was a beautiful and unexpected sight.

The house also had enough board games to rival those of Ikitnrev.

chacha, is that the episode of GG where Lorelai is looking after her neighbor's house? I seem to remember that the neighbor was going to be away for some time and yet he left all the lighting on in the bar (I know, it's TV -- there's no end of things that don't make sense).

I noticed in a previous season that Lorelai had a pair of moai salt & pepper shakers in the kitchen. When I saw them, it became a scene about maoi salt & pepper shakers -- I saw nothing else. Haven't seen them lately though.

Sweet Daddy Tiki- yes, that is the episode I was talking about. I hadn't even thought about it but the moai string lights were blazing. There were lots of carvings in there, too. I'm a big GG fan so thanks for the heads up about the S&P shakers.
