I saw these two auctions on ebay with this description:

Original 1962 ENCHANTED TIKI ROOM Disneyland TIKI ROOM TIKI # 3

This is an ORIGINAL 1962 TIKI # 3 from DISNEYLAND's ENCHANTED TIKI ROOM Attraction. This is one of the TIKIS that descend from the Tree in THE ENCHANTED TIKI ROOM GARDENS Show. This TIKI DESIGN is also featured in the NEW SHAG TIKI ROOM ART PRINTS. This Original TIKI has stamped in the clay on the backside "C 1962 WED ENTERPRISES" This HAND PAINTED TIKI is 12 inches tall and in GOOD CONDITION. Buyer pays $90.00 for INSURED FIRST CLASS OVERNITE MAIL.


ARE THESE FOR REAL???

I've never seen shag art that looks like that.

We must send out the Tangaroa-signal. He can save the day.

hey all...

the seller, Tikidug is a long time collector of disneyland and tiki stuff. his collection is pretty amazing. i believe he found those at a antique show in LA many years ago.

i have one myself, so i know they're real:



these are actually from the exterior of the building as opposed to Tangaroa babies. i haven't been to the 'new' tiki room yet, but up until a few years ago, some of these still adorned the lanai area along the roof of the Dole Whip entry way and some of the bamboo poles on the outside of the entrance.

the pics in his auction don't do them justice though. whether they're worth $21,000...well, who knows.

start breakin' open those piggy banks!

Paying $100-300 a foot for a carving is one thing, $500-600 an inch is another!

I have bought many things from Konacat. He use to work at Disneyland for many many years. Something happened (not sure of the details) but he left "the happiest place on earth" and was so disgusted he moved to Hawaii. He has been a collector for (I believe he said) 20+ years, you can trust this guy, he's a good guy.

Doug is an ex-Imagineer. He designed the little short film tag that was added to the Flavor of Hawaii film that plays in the Tiki Room pre-show. He is trust worthy and has an AMAZING collection of Disneyland props and memorabilia.
Regarding the SHAG artwork, yes, Shag did use these 2 designs on his Tangaroa print. That's the one with the tree in case you are not familiar. These 2 tikis are hanging from the tree on Shag's print. They are 2 out of 3 "Tiki babies" designs. If you go to the Tiki Room today, all the Tiki's hanging from the building have been removed, and the Tangaroa Tikis have been reduced to 2 different designs.
Your friend,
Louis

Hey all - sorry - I was camping!

Tiki1963 - my opinion is.....
well - 1st I need to know - does your Tangaroa baby have that WED stamp on the back?

Because (as Doug & I discussed at one point) these may have been for sale to the public - why else would it have the WED 1963 copyright in the back?

Still - very cool & I'm amazed that Doug is selling them... Wish I had endless $$$$!

hey tang...

hmmm..are you sure you're not speaking of the smaller retail versions that were for sale? i have a few of them that do have a 'walt disney productions' stamp but i don't think the larger ones did. they measure around 6 inches tall or sumpthin like that.

my larger baby was definitely hanging somewhere at the tiki room as the rope is all original from how it was displayed. there's no question they are rare...especially with dug's dr. evil prices!

new e-ticket yesterday. what a surprise...didn't expect another for a while. tang, you have to start doing covers for jack...yipes!

I guess I am confusing them with the smaller ones - sorry bout that! But why did they stamp them on the back? I mean - why would they if they were just castings used as decoration only in the lanai?

Yeah - new "E" Ticket this month - I updated the website last week too:
