I searched and didn't see a topic on this, so forgive me if there is one out there.

There is a surprising amount of tiki on television. Here is a few examples of what I mean.

There is an episode of Scooby Doo called 'A tiki scare is no fair' that has tikis all through it. (There is an old thread about this episode, but the pictures no longer exist)


In the Futurama episode 'Jurassic Bark', Bender brings Fry a tiki.



The opening credits of the CBS show Big Bang Theory, this picture quickly flashes across the screen. (this one is easy to miss)


King of the hill had an episode where they built a tiki raft. (this got its own thread and got me thinking about a television consolidation topic)

I set my DVR to record anything that had "tiki" in the description -

Who knew there were so many little kids shows with Tikis in them. I actually watched the Scooby Doo episode...someone was pretty keyed into the Tiki element, there are A-frame houses, hula dancing, the whole nine yards. I'm guessing it was made in the late 60's, early 70's?

I cancelled the DVR request when I started getting a million episodes of anything with Tiki Barber in it, however.

Last night on the Venture Brothers, Dr Venture is shown in the past at a bar demanding a Suffering Bastard. Then after he collapses to the floor he demands it again to which the Bartender replies. "I'm still working on it!"

On HGTV's Don't Sweat It and DIY's Yardcrashers they are each making Tiki bars Saturday, March 13 at 11:30am Pacific Standard Time. I'm not sure how good these bars are going to be.

Shawn's dad on Psych (USA Network) has a tiki bar with mugs and stuff in his house. It shows up every once in a while.

I was wondering if anyone else had noticed - I just figured they had! I saw the mugs there on the last episode! Looks like EVERYone wants in on Tiki now!

I was watching the new show "Prime Suspect" last night that I had TIVO'd. A suspect broke away and two officers chased him through a department store. They found him hiding and one of the officers grabbed a Tiki torch and beat the suspect into submission with the Tiki torch. Not sure if this post belongs here in Tiki on TV or I think at one point I saw another post about Tiki torches being used as weapons?

On Psych, the father has a bar in the corner of his living room with a cheesy light up Tiki in the background. A recent episode in a fancy mansion had a huge gorgeous painting of tropical women and some nice barware in the background.

There was also an episode called "Camp Tikihama"...I didn't see any Tikis, although here are the lyrics to the camp song.

Camp Tikihama what you are,
Reaches near and reaches far,
From white capped mountains to crystal lakes,
sing out loud for Tiki sakes!

We are friends who bond over bright ember fires,
And to marshmellow dreams we will retire,
Camp Tikihama you're so true,
La-la-la-la-la and then the view,
La-la-la-la-la and then the view!

Good Vibes on MTV features a Tiki Bar with some familiar background characters sitting at the bar and some familiar artwork on the walls. You can watch it here: http://www.mtv.com/videos/good-vibes-ep-1-pilot/1672309/playlist.jhtml

When GROG first started working on The Simpsons, there was one artist who had his office decorated Tiki and that was Brad Abelson. He has left The Simpsons and is involved in this show. He was also at Tiki Oasis in August.

What great stills! Very lovingly rendered Tiki environs. Unfortunately since it is targeted at teens, its inane, teenage-level stories and humor together with the minimum level animation make it kinda hard to watch.

I liked it, but I am admittedly into childish humor.
