Who is going in and buying one for all of us??

As much as I like this mug, now I have to pick and choose the mugs that I buy cause more than money, I ran out of space. If it was just money, I could go a few days without eating, but space is really limited and I would have to take more down to put some up. And I did want a hut that looked just like this. I was hoping to beat TikitOny to making one, guess that didn't matter. Now the Christmas Tiki Village can start.

Hey Kate- If you found yourself with extra time and wanted to take one more photo, what about one with both huts together. Doesn't matter if you get to it. Its almost like you are the first kid on the block with the shiny new toy and everybody crowds around to see.

Kevin & Jody did not design that. I'd like to know who told you they did! Another member of the Disneyland merch team had it commissioned.

It's actually printed on the hang tag.

Well It's a great fun mug without a straw hole & with Fun "contours and the funky glaze hues" I Love it, when I first saw it I thought it might be Vintage & we all just missed ever seeing it. No matter who designed it ya better get one fast, Disney said they were selling like crazy now. Disney told me "The mug is not a Limited Edition although it most likely will be Limited to firing days or months". Be prepared if your not picking it up at the park, their is a $22.00 "Limited Edition" insured shipping fee, and that was quoted to go 1 hour & 10 min. away.

These were in Jody's office when we visted them last spring. My memory is very fuzzy about these -- my quite-possibly-faulty memory is that Kevin wasn't involved in them, and Jody was not thrilled to be involved in them. They were a sort of "Hey, those tiki mugs we made for the Tiki Room sold like hotcakes! Let's make them for places all over the park!" thing that the higher-ups came up with.

An it-would-be-funny-if-it-weren't-tragic story about Kevin & Jody's (now former) higher-ups:

When we met Kevin & Jody's boss at Disney, it was when we were helping out with their presentation of the great Enchanted Tiki Room merchandise to the NFFC (national Disneyana group). Their boss, in an attempt to make small talk with us, said "is the Tiki Room still open?" And not in a "hey, if we pop into Disneyland later, will it be too late to catch a show?" kind of way, it was in an "I haven't set foot in Disneyland in a decade, even though I'm responsible for creating merchandise targeted exclusively to people who love it, and I honestly had no idea that the attraction hadn't been removed years ago" kind of way.

well yikes! for the over paid ignorant. Thanks for the info Humu quite amusing. I must say, I do recognize that very familiar art on that mug.. but I'm not saying anything. BTW-FYI, I know Walt loved "It's a Small world" but that very valuable land would make a great Polynesian Village ya think, new thread.

I can't believe that. Even if it is on the tag! It has to be an error of some kind. Kevin certainly didn't sculpt it.

An inferior design is being attributed to a pair of respected designers who didn't do the work. The only reason to do this is to try to cash in on the respect that collectors have for these designers, and all this is happening after the designers have parted ways with the company pushing said inferior design.

If there's hostility it's not toward a lumpy bit of kiln-fired slurry, but towards the people who would mislabel it to try to gain sales. They might as well have labeled it "Tiki Eames Shag Witco
L@@K!"

I saw this at Disneyland. I thought it was cute. I bought it.

I didn't realize that it had Kevin and Jody's names on it until the cast member took it out to show it to me. So I don't feel duped or cheated in any way.

I have a whole set of those! And they are all NRFB, Pristine and grade A, except for the small crazing on the inside of the mug that they took pictures of but were so blurry you couldn't tell if the photos was the item being listed or something from Aunt Mary's latest endocsopy...

But seriously...... All of you graphic designers out there should understand the Work-For-Hire clauses in most of our contracts. That design may have been something that was worked on somewhere/when else during thier employment tenure and the 'boss' said I like those make it happen. It may be a insult to the designers to have thier names associated with it, but lets not forget that Disney is a huge corporation and does things like a corporation would.

And, to the mugs.... Is anyone willing to get me a set and ship to Florida? I can send monies to you via paypal if your willing to go shopping for me....

I like it too &... I bought one. Funny, some collectors are willing to buy something like a "cowboy mug with a kitty as a head" whats Tiki about that? Just cause some Great designer made it we sometimes buy it for many reasons, they only made 12 of them, or it's the only purple one ever made. I know it's not right to put someones name on something they didn't do but, as stated, that's corp. America. And I wouldn't go so far to say it's inferior. Many Vintage mugs for example are inferior, sloppy paint cheap ceramics, we still love them. Sometimes what starts as a great design with best intention gets fouled up in the over-seas production like, 3rd world kids (or adults) painting the mug for low wages. There is nothing wrong with that design except maybe the straw hole and that's personal preference. It's all opinion.I just feel this is getting to personal.
