Storyline

Everyone in the family is excited when Mike tells them that his company is sending him to Honolulu for a business trip, and he is able to bring them all along all expenses paid. Their vacation starts off well as they take in the many sights of Oahu. But things start to change when the boys accompany Mike to the construction site. There, Bobby finds a small tiki idol, which he decides he will keep as a good luck charm. What Bobby is unaware of is that one of the construction workers, old Mr. Hanalei, a traditional native islander, earlier saw the idol, and recognized it as a native taboo idol of evil to anyone who touches it. Beyond the luck Bobby and Cindy have in meeting island entertainer Don Ho while the idol is in Bobby's possession, near catastrophes end up occurring to whoever is in the possession of the idol, although no one in the family sees it as a bad luck charm, but still the exact opposite. But that bad luck may prove serious for the latest in the family to have it in his... Written by Huggo

Trivia

When Mike comes home with the tickets, his hair is straight. When the Bradys get to Hawaii, his hair is permed. This is not because he went to the hair salon, it's because the humidity in the Hawaiian air brought out his natural curly hair. Florence Henderson specifically commented on this in a TV interview she once gave. See more »

The typeface of the word "United" on the port side of the Douglas DC8 changes between takes. While in flight the typeface is all capitals and sans-serif; while parked the typeface has only the "U" capitalized, the rest of the letters are lowercase, and all the letters have serifs. See more »
