Did I see several Ape Fez mugs in the ads for the new Teen College Comedy "Accepted"? There was a "Tiki" bar scene in the TV ads with what looked like the standard Tiki Farm Ape mugs on the bartop.

I just watched "Accepted" on Pay-Per-View with my wife and spotted the tiki mugs you were talking about. I didn't spot any Tiki Farm Mugs, though. They used the Pony Express Creations 4-pack (Blue Kanaloa, Red Kane, Yellow Ku, and Brown Lono) from Party City.

Here are a couple of screen shots:

Seen over christmas
"Adams Family Values" had a bar scene full of Puffer fish lamps and "Blast from the Past" has a bar with a Tiki-ish exterior.

Seen this Monday on the Twilight Zone Marathon, in the 1962 episode "A piano in the house" that, when it plays, lets everyone speak out their true feelings:

The player piano has a small white Maori Tiki mask stuck in the center, and is initially purchased at a curio shop where two more Maori carvings can be seen: By the door when the lead character leaves (a whacky one!) and on a shelf in the back ground.

Does any one have the boxed DVD set and can post screenshots?

Below is a pic from "After School Special" (2003). The video title is "National Lampoon's Barely Legal" (2005). Horatio Sanz is manning a tiki bar with a moai over his right shoulder and a carved tiki over his left. On the bar (not shown) is a coconut monkey. Sanz plays "Vic Ramalot"... a caricature of porn actor Ron Jeremy.

It looks like just another silly teen sex comedy. I didn't watch all of it, but I put the TiVo on pause when I channel surfed past the tikis.

So very long since I've been here my good people!


Look at Burt grasping that Tiki... what a guy!




I've also seen one in The Big Heat when Lee Marvin is smacking Gloria Graham around. And in the episode of The Outer Limits with William Shatner called Cold Hands Warm Heart.

After recently discovering the "Image Capture" button on my latop's DVD player, I grabbed my copy of Donovan's Reef for a quick tiki scan.


Greeting Gilhooley (Lee Marvin) on the beach of Haleakalaoha


Shortly after coming ashore.


Outside of "Donovan's Reef"


I like this movie. Similar to The Quiet Man, (The other John Wayne/John Ford movie where John Wayne plays a good-natured, Irish brawler,) and a great cast, John Wayne, Lee Marvin, Elizabeth Allen, Cesar Romero, Dorothy Lamour, and Jack Warden. Awesome scenery, too.

And, Yes, that big cop is Mike Mazurki, the guy who played Igor, the doctor's assistant who Gilligan gave a dog's brain to on Gilligan's Island.

Tom Hanks in Joe vs. The Volcano



Considering it was a weak "romantic Comedy" with Hanks and Meg Ryan, there were some cute scenes in it, including a neat little ukulele song he does while stranded on a raft, called "The Cowboy Song."
And I want that hula lamp he has on his desk back at the Artificial Testicle factory.

Wild Wild West has a shoddy and possibly butchered attempt at some afro-tikism in season 1 called the night of sudden death. Although not South Pacific, there are some "Tikistein" inspirations, and besides, whats cooler than watching Ross Martin and James Conrad do their late 1800s CIA magic!?

Okay, how about this then...

Gilligan's Island, Season 1, 'Waiting for Watubi'; Skipper finds "Kona, the god of evil!"

"Whoever disturbs his rest is cursed forever!"


So he and Gilligan set out to bury him. Good thing they had that shovel on board the Minnow, (I'm sure all three-hour tropical cruises carry one as standard equipment!)

Last nite on the Paula Dean cooking show on Food Network she had a southern luau. There were tikis all over the place, mugs, leis, etc. Everyone in the audience had a tiki mug with a cocktail umbrella. She wore a grass skirt and made a drink with the following ingredients: OJ, cranberry, orange sherbet, champagne, vodka. All of this was mixed up in a large glass bowl. Then she added dry ice to it. It smoked and was pretty cool looking. She also tried a flaming volcano bowl but was unable to get much of a flame. I was happy to see tikis on TV but it wasnt an authentic poly pop thing, if you know what I mean.

Charlton Heston plays Richard "King" Howland, a wealthy landowner who disapproves of his sister's involvement with a native boy in 1962's "Diamond Head."

Chuck with Elizabeth Allen and a friend.


A mighty luau! Perfect setting for a pivotal plot turn!


And of course...
