Great find meega. That Disney would copy another's graphics is amazing but that they would copy a log cabin polynesian graphic is astounding! Where else in tikidom can one find the two themes together? Did the early British and European Hawaiian settlers build log cabins?

Likely the designer copied the image from page 60 of the BOT - a trusted Tiki image resource for the last 13 years

You're probably right about copying from the BOT. It's Disney's iron-grip on their trademark/copyright/intellectual property rights that adds a dash of irony to this piece.

And, while it seems cool at first glance, it's a pretty loveless patch-together job.

What the What??? I can't believe the Disney empire would stoop so low as to copy from the BOT without copyrights and so on...

A different menu cover from our folks at Judges.

Now dat's boootiful! DC, it's usually the desk job level designers that do those things: Quick and dirty, nobody will notice as long as the product gets delivered.

This menu design matches the matchbook design on page one, which has an alpha-numeric phone number & no zip code. They stopped using that style phone # around here in the 60's......zip codes started in '63. This was probably one of their first as a true Polynesian style restaurant, and like I said I was there in '59 or '60 and that Hawaiian warrior with headdress always stuck in my mind(as kinda goofy actually).

It always reminded me of Korla Pandit, master of the Exotica organ:
