Was watching my Seinfeld dvd's last night and lo and behold discovered that Kramer has a tiki corner in his apartment. Episode is the one where he is showing around 3 Japanese tourists who wind up staying with him. they show a corner of his apartment with a tiki mask on the wall. Its from season 8, episode 7.

Remember Anne Francis as private detective "Honey West"? It was a B&W TV show that ran for one season in 1965. They just re-issued it on DVD. In the episode "A Neat Little Package", Honey goes undercover as a cigarette girl in a Tiki restaurant. I'm not sure if they used a set or if it was filmed at an actual business. The exterior shots show a bamboo-thatched Polynesian-style restaurant with the sign "Golden Lotus" (which might have just been stuck there). There is also a small artificial lagoon with tiki torches adjacent to what looks like the rear of the restaurant. Anyway there were a lot of tikis for the interior shots. One poor tiki gets a machete chop in the head.

Anne Francis was also really cool in "Forbidden Planet" which has a (kind of) tiki-headed robot.

Christmas Eve and of course I'm watching "It's A Wonderful Life".
In the scene where George is running down the street in "Pottersville" he goes past a Bar called "The Bamboo Room" and there is the sound of Exotica music comming from it.

WGN is running repeats of WKRP in Cincinnati.
On one episode there is a Suffering Bastard mug on Herb Tarlek's desk.
It was on one show only and I never saw it since.

Caught a "Law & Order" (I think it was an SVU) and one of the interiors was "Brenda's Tiki Bar", Not a tiki in sight, just rolls of reed fencing (ala Home Despot) and light up fake palm trees. The waitresses were all in Bikinis, too. It was rather dark, though and the main suspect was drinking out of a Dynasty bamboo mug (Everyone else seemed to have a beer battle in their hand).

There is a show on Cartoon Network called Total Drama Island. It is a cartoon version of Survivor. In on episode, a girl takes a forbidden idol of a haunted island.

In a later episode, when they interview the castoffs, There is a pool bar with tikis. But those tikis were the neon paint jobbers and don't deserve a pic.

Last night on "Life on Mars" the chief of police and one of his dead buddy's son had a drink called a "Burning Question" (mentioned through out the episode) served to them (in a nudie bar) in what looked like darker green OH R-5. When ABC gets the episode up I'll do a screen shot.

Last night I was watching Moonlight on the SciFi Channel and the main guy is flashing back to the 50's and you should see the house, the clothes, the decorations...it's right out of a SHAG painting (or vice versa)! The music was also great. Not my favorite type of show but there was nothing else on! I'm glad I watched!

Oh, in case you're interested, the episode was called "Dead Ringer."

Some tiki mugs showed up on SNL last night (March 7, 2009) in the 'Hawaiian Hotel' sketch. Dwayne 'The Rock' Johnson and Fred Armisen portray Hawaiians who aren't particularly happy with their lot in life:

I saw it last night and thought it was pretty funny (and a lot of truth in it too.)

Hano Hanooo!!...

Just saw the latest episonde of "Bones" on Fox. There is a carved Tiki featured in a safari-themed used car dealership, in the first half of the episode. The whole dealership is very cool, lots of bamboo and thatch, more tiki than safari, really.

Mad Men is a show about 1950s advertising executives working on Madison Avenue. The show is not really tiki but it is a feast of eye candy for people who love 1950s style. Everyone smokes and drinks and political correctness has not been invented yet.

On the first episode the main character takes a client out to a bar and she orders the "Special Mai Tai".

That is one tasty looking drink.
