For Sabu some screen shots of SNL "Stairway to Heaven" skit featuring Bill Murray

Other SNL Tiki/South Seas images

Chris Farley doing the ritual good luck weird hula dance

Bobby Moynihan in his parents basement tiki bar in a recent episode that has been covered already here on TC

No tiki or Polynesian images but a pic of Billy Crystal as Buddy Young Jr. reviewing Don Ho's Blue Flame Restaurant

Screen shots of SCTV, the old rival of SNL in their famous "Polynesian Town" which has also been covered in TC. Here's John Candy as Johnny LaRue in his "Luau Room"

And finally Dan Aykroyd playing a TV evangelist named Jack the Lord with a giant church decorated in a South Seas motif. Hilarious and rare. Pre SNL days for Aykroyd and shot during his "Second City" days in Chicago (also pre SCTV).

This comedy project was edited later into MR. MIKES MONDO VIDEO which is a DVD one can find on the internet.

A new interior design show (Red Hot Design) had a tiki-themed episode called "Tiki Bar Brouhaha."
For whatever reason, this translated into much of the show revolving around the decision to include & build an 8' birdcage.
The only tikis in the episode where a few palm fronds painted with scowling tiki-ish faces and a surfboard painted with a "tiki totem" design.

Here you see one of the finer builds in the episode (the bamboo back bar) along with the questionable bird cage:

Here are some of the few tiki-like items in the episode:

A good example of the episode's tiki content is this clip:
