$50?

You mean that wasn't an original that shot a lizard, monkey, and a snake?

"Don't laugh, that's his name" What an ass.

Here are some stills from the Hawaii Five-0 episode For A Million Why, Why Not? Where a company called Tiki Gods is used for a bank heist, Iíve recognized a few of the tikis in other episodes as props so itís nice to see them in one place.

I just bought the Season 2 set (available in PAL format from Amazon UK), and have really noticed the decor of his pad. Classic 50's tiki culture and Henry Mancini's jazz score seem to go well together. (I'm not into hifi, but it looks like he also had a killer 50's setup.)

Because it's a "Call Back" to Ferris drinking out of the same mug in Ferris Bueller's Day Off and with the same garnish.



Get it together people!

Kids, I need some help here: WHICH specific episodes show Peter Gunn's apartment festooned with primitive art!? And if you don't have a screen capture application, can you just snap some photos of your screen?

I just watched the 16 episodes of Peter Gunn Set 2 and there is NOTHING Tiki-esque to be found in his or any of the sets - as a matter of fact, the sets are so stagey and boring, it makes sense that the production company called itself "Spartan"! The episode with the "Bamboo Cafe", the episode with the Beatnik diver babes drinking from pineapples and handing out leis to Peter Gunn:
Embarrassingly cheap B-movie set dressing that would be easily outdone by any real Polynesian joint location.

Naugatiki: Those "Tiki Gods Co." stills from 5.O are amazing, thank you !!!

This past week's episode of The Finder on Fox featured the exterior and interior of Don The Beachcomber's in HB.
I cannot get screen shots off the internet as the episode is locked for 8 days after the show airs.

Don's was used as an illegal casino in the episode. The Coconut Bar is featured as well as another back or side room. There are shots from across the street and of a back entrance.

I know this has been mentioned on TC before, but thought I'd include some screenshots from the Squidward's Tiki Land episode of Spongebob. Please ignore my kids grubby fingerprints!

The US sets (with 16 edited-for-syndication first season episodes each) on A&E are not what you need.

You want the UK collection #2, which contains the entire 38-episode second season of the series. (The UK sets are region-free, but they are in PAL.)

There are at least two episodes that show off Pete's pad. (I'm still only on disc 2, so there are more than 20 episodes left.)

In season 2, episode 5 - "Death Is A Red Rose" - A thug shows up at Pete's place and the two men fight it out. You can see some primitive things on the shelves in the background. (The larger items look more African than Polynesian.)





There is a also a close-up of a wooden head that the camera focuses on as the battle wages in the BG.



A few episodes later (season 2, episode 10 - "The Game"), Pete's friends gather at his place for a party.

The same wooden head is featured again. This time, one of Pete's beatnik friends tries to get friendly with it...



If other examples turn up in future episodes, I'll post them here.
