Wow, thank you so much for those great images, Michelle! I can't play PAL on my DVD player in the U.S. And those statues are indeed all African, not Oceanic art. But this finding does support my general "Tiki Modern" theory.

That Sponge Bob Tiki Land episode is most unfortunate. Why would a show that was the first to incorporate some really cool Tiki elements, like Squidward's house, and an A-frame movie theater with Tiki bathroom sinks, stoop so low in its Tiki designs with badly-rendered, 2-dimensional Party Store-colored Tikis !!?



This should have been an ode to mod-cartoony Tiki art, and it's not. It might be OK for kids, but where were the adult designers that bought the Book of Tiki multiple times when it came out, at 8-Ball right down the street from Nickelodeon? I can only fathom that, like back ground designs often are, it was farmed out to China. These Tikis bear the hallmark symptoms of non-Amercian, internet-sourced Tiki.






New poster on this great forum. Great thread and good point Bigbro we all must beware and learn to distinguish between genuine ancient Tiki, Polynesian Pop Tiki and "Party Store" Tiki which I call Tiky-Tacky(trash/crap) and not to be confused with Kitschy-Catchy(little better with some historic value)or Wiki-Wacky(just plain crazy)

I was going through some old files and found some photos I took of Dr Jacoby's office in the first season of Twin Peaks(1990).

There is a discussion of this here:

http://www.tikiroom.com/tikicentral/bb/viewtopic.php?topic=9250&forum=1&hilite=twin peaks

Here are some images of the good Doc's office. I apologize for the poor quality photos.


















Best single season of TV ever!

Still watching TV...saw The Simpsons tonight, Sunday, March 4, they had a spoof of Trader Joe's done up with bamboo, a Tiki, Hawaii shirt employees, and in one corner a net full of what appears to be mini Japanese fishing floats and attached to the side of it is a shrunken head!
here is a photo of the net and head:


Hawaiian shirt-clad employees wrap Apoo in a Hawaiian shirt to restrain him


And here is the Tiki (in red box) sorry it's so blurry, The Simpson's moves fast

Supernatural, season 7/episode 14, 2012, "Plucky Pennywhistle's Magical Menagerie" has the brothers staying at the "Tiki Motel" and their room has hula wallpaper, rattan chairs, leopard print drapes, rock walls, and a small Tiki bar with a Tiki standing behind it.

The last episode of The Fugitive (1967) was shot at the Pacific Ocean Park, where the Doctor meets the One Armed Man. One of the scenes included the Tiki totems and the Mahi Mahi ride.





I could not find any cleaner photos or videos.

Aaaah, the fugitive! That was a "street sweeper" in Germany when I was little! The FINAL episode, after 120 episodes of being on the run and chasing the one-armed man! And now, exhausted, holding onto columns carved by Jim Casey...



I loved the original Fugitive show...

And lookey here, what we walk into at 18:08 minutes of the above episode:



Though this tropical hideaway is sadly bereft of Tikis, it is a pretty nice set for TV show.

Bigbro,

Great looking set, almost looks like the handy work of Bamboo Ben. Do you know if Eli did work for the studios?

I know this is probably not the TV watched by most PolyPopsters, but Robert Jebediah Freeman of Adult Swim's "The Boondocks" has a Tiki Bar in his basement;


Well, I don't see any tikis. And the ceiling is white. But there is a big netted float on the right and the yellow chair could be interpreted as MCM

I wish DC.

Regarding Eli... that'll all come out in my future book " Eli Hedley, The Original Beachcomber"

Nothing that spectacular but figured it should be cataloged. Last night's episode of Breaking In on Fox had a party scene with a few Tiki items in the background. Too early for screen-caps on the episode as it just aired.
The episode title is Game of Jones, season 2 episode 4.

Also lots of Indiana Jones references for those 'gear heads' out there...you know who you are.
