While not a TV show or movie, I remember going to the arcades quite a bit as a kid, and coming across a fighting game called World Heroes 2. There was a character named "Mudman" who hailed from Papua New Guinea. He was actually the first "Tiki" anything I ever stumbled across as a kid and I was instantly fascinated with what this was all about.

Nice name, Gunga! Here's the real mudmen:

Stumbled across a pleasant surprise this evening:
looks like Hell's Half Acre is finally getting a re-release (and on blu-ray no less, wow).
One of my favorite, all-time Tiki/South Seas/Noir films...
