Wow! The horrible mish-mash of cultures and time periods in these photos has my head spinning! The hair styles are clearly from the 70's, and is that lap-steel guy playing an electric guitar? The aloha shirts don't look to be from the 1940's either. I wonder if anybody watching this when it was first broadcast noticed how un-authentic it was.

Hilarious and fascinating at the same time!

But in the 70's, I guess time period authenticity did not seem to be a top priority in TV... like the early episodes of Happy Days looked fairly convincingly 1950's, but by the end of the series, everyone had feathered 70's hair!

Here's another screen grab that I have lightened... It shows detail of the smaller tiki on stage.

I love how we can discuss how un-authentic the authenticness of something as un-authentic as Poly-Pop Tiki is...

Well put.
Is there a chance to get another angle on THAT Tiki?:



...in order to determine if it became the "Peewee's Playhouse" Tiki:

I wonder who had the luck to buy this puppy...what a steal for 150.- bucks.

That was my first thought

The lighting on the tiki in the corner isn't very good.
Here's another shot of it.
It does resemble the PeeWee's Playhouse tiki.
The mouths seem to be identical.

My Tiki senses say "YES", this is the later Peewee Tiki. Good to know it was actually a vintage design.

Just as a fun fact, the guy with the ukulele is most likely Mike Aki.
And if you all are really really curious about where this was filmed, I suggested asking Eric Scott who played Ben - he probably remembers.

At the risk of dating myself, I remember watching this episode when it was originally aired. Ben moves to Norfolk, VA for work. I distinctly recall the scene in the joint because his date asks the waiter about booze in the drinks and is reassured that there is none. Although not yet old enough to desire a drink, the irony was not lost. How could anyone drink those sans booze?

It probably was a set. Of course, the show was suppose to take place in the Blue Ridge Mountains of Virginia, maybe 2 or 3 hours from here. It was filmed on Hollywood sound stages.

Love the comment on 70s feathered hair. I always thought the hair styles on M*A*S*H were a major goof.

Mash, Happy Days, Lavern and Shirley etc, etc! Horrible disregard for period costumes. I guess no one cared.

I enjoyed one episode of MASH where they were heading out on a trip in a Jeep & BJ says 'I brought the Fig Newtons!' & you could clearly see "Big Fig" on the supposed 50's era package!

LOL! That is great! I always like spotting palm trees in shows that are supposed to take place where there are none i.e. Philly, DC, etc.
