A sketch from the Rich Little Show in 1976 with Rich & Charlotte Rae as lounge act in the Orchid Room between two Milan Guanko tikis. Nice tikis but singing Love Will Keep Us Together in a tiki bar is a deevolution moment.

Hey, is that the Sahara Las Vegas Beachcomber !?

Those are not Milan Guankos, but the trusty PeeWee's Playhouse prop Tikis that have seen many shows over the years.

...to see them. I believe there were several of these, made from the same mold.

And here is another moment in Tiki Devolution:

Digging around the web, I found out that the "South Seas" Apartments on 19223 Saticoy Street in Reseda had been the location home of the 1984 classic "Karate Kid" (even though CheekyGirl had mentioned this here before)
http://www.tikiroom.com/tikicentral/bb/viewtopic.php?topic=28779&forum=2



Very appropriately for the state of Tiki in 1984, the place is characterized as a "dump" in the movie:

When I found and photographed the place for the BOT (page 218/19) in the early 90's, it didn't look that bad, the pool was fixed, but except for the cool font there was nothing left worthy of documentation. I wonder if it is still up. Has anybody been by there recently?

Saw this being aired after the new season of Beavis and Butthead. Not my favorite show, but I'm sad I missed this episode.

EDIT: I'm talking about the "Good Vibes" episode listed on Page 1. D'oh!

Has anyone noticed the killer tikis festooning Peter Gunn's pad...when he is home, that is?

I have actually noticed quite a bit of tiki on old TV programs while goofing on ME TV!!! If you don't have this channel, call your cable company and demand it!

On the latest episode of Absolutely Fabulous (01-01-2012) Job Patsy (Joanna Lumley)mentions going to the Mahiki just at the end of the episode.

Nice to hear tiki/celebrity reference in popular culture.

I was wondering how long it would take for the Mahiki to completely jump the proverbial shark.

Visual depictions of such findings are always appreciated on this forum

The Tonga Room in San Francisco was the location for a group date on The Bachelor tonight. Did anyone else happen to see it? or would anyone else admit it if they did?
They are at the bar from the 42 minute mark until the 51 minute mark and have a few good shot of the place in the background. The Bachelor is being re-aired this Sunday at 4:00 on the east coast. As 'they' like to say, check your local listings and set your DVR's
