I caught an old episode of Gidget a few weeks back on one of the retro stations on Cable TV.

Martin Milner (post Route 66 & pre Adam 12) played the "Great Kahuna" surfer who had a tiki shack on the beach Gidget (Sally Fields) hangs out at.

Here is the episode

Sally Fields looks pretty darn good. Too bad she became a nun the next season.

Hey, what's wrong with nuns !?



(Sorry - just had to react to that cue: This is me with the cast of the TV series I am currently shooting in Bavaria)

If I remember correctly, didn't Gidget become a nun in the series finale?

Enough about shooting nuns now, I am sorry for the derail...

After "Hawaiian Eye" and "Adventures in Paradise" have received their due in Tiki history, how about this show:



Granted, in all the episodes I have seen so far on U-Tube, there is nary a peeky of a Tiki, but in terms of Polynesian pop history, this TV series is a great example of Pacific War Theater cuteyfication.

The shack (set) McHale's crew congregates in looks like this:



Shenanigans like this happen every now and then...



...and Ernest Borgnine sometimes dresses as a Beachcomber!:



Here's a nice exception to the lack-a-Tiki in the show, a Tiki (sort of) drinking fountain behind a bamboo bar that pours a Navy Grog (!) into coconut cups:



...to be found in this fun episode:

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AdDxDKryhPE&list=PL5416444265A6551A



"Mc Hale's Paradise Motel" !

And this episode all revolves around the recipe for a sensational "Chicken Polynesian":

I have not had the time to watch ALL of the episodes out there, perhaps there are more Tiki sightings to be made. It would seem this show is right up Pele Paul's (tag name here) alley.

McHale's Navy was a fun show until season four when the moved the setting to Italy.

Here's a weird one I saw this morning on TV - Jake and the Never Land Pirates.

"Night of the Golden Pumpkin" - they had Tiki Trees!

Yeah, McHale's Navy is an awesome show...I have season one...but have not gone all the way through it. Now I am going to have to, and keep an eye out for that shack. The show is totally politically incorrect but I dig it any way. Presently I am watching hogan's heroes season one. Alas, no tiki...but there are "funny nazis"...! (and as a bonus I find myself looking more and more like Klink every day)

I love Hollywood depictions of Nazis - in Hogan's Heroes and beyond! Funny how the Captain in McHale's Navy essentially played the part of Colonel Klink in Hogan's Heroes.

Lucas, isn't that "Paradise Motel" episode in Season 1 ?
