In the 1969 Brady Bunch episode 'Dear Libby', Alice is drinking out of a (non-tiki) coffee cup.

The sticker on the bottom of the cup seems to be the famous yellow/gold Otagiri foil sticker.

Note sticker on bottom


A shot of the cup

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.

Last season's CSI had a funny show, rare for them, written by the writers of Two and Half Men about a vain TV star who is murdered. In one of the final scenes where Grissom and Brass confront the murderer (who gets away with it) on a TV soundstage, you can briefly see a giant Tiki head lurking behind them.

For those of you with cable, several networks are running reruns of Malcolm in the Middle. In one of them, Malcolm's mother and father make the kids turn their garage into a Tiki Lounge -- and they do a damn fine job of it, too. Every day the parents retreat there to relax, drink out of Tiki mugs and get away from the world, until of course something ensues to destroy their paradise. If you can, also catch the Burning Man episode -- no Tikis in this one and no, in spite of what you see on screen, there are no cacti in the Black Rock Desert -- but the show is hilarious. My wife and I attended Burning Man so we have both episodes stored permanently on our DVR.

Years of watching "I Love Lucy" and I never caught this before..

Episode #128 titled "Lucy Visits Grauman's" (Season 5 - Air date Oct.3, 1955 - The famous episode where Lucy steals John Wayne's footprints.)

Lucy complains to Ricky she didn't have any souvenirs from Hollywood.

Ricky retrieves a box of Hollywood memorabilia. Inside the box: an orange autographed by Robert Taylor. A grapefruit signed by Richard Widmark. A tin can squashed by Cary Grant's left rear wheel. Menus from the Brown Derby. Matchbook covers from Ciros. Ashtrays from the Beverly Hilton..and

CHOPSTICKS from "THE BEACHCOMBER!"

Does anybody know if Lucille Ball and Desi Arnaz have their chopsticks on display at Don The Beachcombers in reality? Just wondering.

I can't believe no one has posted this, yet! During the first season of Happy Days, on April 2, 1974, an episode aired called: "Because She's There". Potsie sets Richie up with a blind date for Ralph's masquerade party. The blind date is Diana Canova, (from SOAP), she's dressed as the Statue of Liberty & she towers over Richie. The party is held in Ralph's basement, complete with rattan furniture, Hawaiian travel posters & a round, rattan shelf on the wall with Tiki mugs in it. The only mugs I can identify are a couple of Tiki Bob's. You guys need to check this out. I was playing it over & over again looking for more details, but now I can't get my DVD player to work. CRAP!

I'm a little embarrassed to post this, but what the hell.

This is from a 1995 episode of Roseanne titled Sherwood Schwartz: A Loving Tribute.

On an Overhaulin' episode titled "Sema--Radical Roadster" they had a woman with MS who is into all things '50's and when they interviewed her there were Tiki's around and a Miehana mug on a shelf next to her as well as a Drei Moai Scorpion Bowl. Her Husband said she wanted the car painted "Tiki Green".

Watching The Rockford Files right now. Jim & his dad were eating in a restaurant with tapa on the walls & drinking out of hollowed out pineapples. On their way out, there was a big glass float hanging over the door & a good sized Tiki in front of the building.

Watching The Rockford Files right now.

"$200 a day, plus expenses." Nobody was cooler in the 1970's than James Scott Rockford. No-body. Greatest private investigator series ever to grace the airways. Find a better theme song, g'head, try!

In the early episodes Rockford's trailer was not in the more well known West Cove location but rather was in a parking lot right near the Malibu Pier. Viewers would see him leave the trailer and head south down PCH, and thereby catch a brief glimpse of the infamous Tonga Lei. Perhaps the location of said scene?


To me, Rockford seemed like a Navy Grog kind of fellow.

I caught this commercial one Saturday morning.

Sadly, I don't know (nor care) who these boys are (I don't have kids, so I'm no longer "hip" to today's trends LOL), but they are promoting a kids yogurt. In the commercial, they are playing the "I crush" game I think started by the comedy troupe "Kids in the Hall". Anyways, here's a link to the commercial.

That's a bold statement.

The 1970's were a great decade for coolness. Jim Rockford was a nice guy but the 1970's were the time for Blaxploitation and Kung Fu fighting. During that time no white TV cop/PI was cooler that Ron "Superfly" O'Neal, Richard "John Shaft" Roundtree, Sonny "The Street Figher" Chiba, and of course the late great Bruce Lee. Also I think Pam Grier could have kicked Jim Rockford's ass.

And if you want to talk about white TV cops, Starsky and Hutch might have been cooler than Rockford but Baretta definitely was. Their opening themes were way cooler than Rockford's hokey "progressive rock" music.

I'll give him this credit though, Jim Rockford was a bourbon guy. He would have considered a tropical cocktail kind of swishy.

John-O -

Blaxploitation & Kung-Fu? 1970s?

We must must pay homage to legendary Rudy Ray Moore as DOLEMITE - a 1975 film

Who can forget Dolemite's all-girl army of KUNG FU KILLERS?!!!

(sorry for the slight derailment...back to the TV discussion...)
