I went back and was able to find one frame on the dvd with enough detail to make a better determination about this being the Peewee's Playhouse Tiki... So here you go...

Looks like your tiki senses were pretty dead on... again...

My visual Tiki memory is better than my visual people memory. Or maybe it's alike: Some folks I recognize right away as to where I know them from, while others elicit just a vague feeling of "Damn, I know this person from somewhere..." I have been on some wild goose chases through my archives, eventually coming up empty. But that Tiki's frown clicked in my brain archive. I have been wrong before though...once or twice

It seems to me that, judging by the material (fiberglass?), all the Tikis on the set were done by the same prop shop, though probably not for this specific show. Would be interesting to find footage from an earlier production (movie or TV) with some of these guys in it, to determine when the Peewee Tiki was made. What year was this Waltons episode produced?

On the absence of alcohol in the drinks, Virginia State allows "Dry Counties". Maybe this tiki bar was suppposed to be in a Dry County and not during prohibition.

This episode was from 1977.
From what I have read, the Waltons was a Lorimar Production...
Before the company was Lorimar it was MGM...
So my guess is that they came from a pre-1977 MGM picture...
