The birds however came home to roost. Not so coincidentally, Marc was a collector of authentic oceanic art, and he incorporated many genuine details and patterns into his drawings. Imagineer Harriet Burns designed and feathered many of the Enchanted Tiki Room birds, using real feathers. Walt invited his virtuoso tunesmiths, the Sherman Brothers, to view the show. When he asked the songwriting siblings if they had any ideas, they recalled a calypso song they had composed for a Disney TV show about the production of Swiss Family Robinson And Walt bought the idea, just like that.
Additionally, the four famous spokesbirds had yet to be designed. To add a sense of continuity to the show, Richard and Robert suggested that a colorful parrot with a personality serve as emcee. Walt liked the idea so much, he built on their inspiration. Originally, the plumage of the talkative Tiki Room headliners was colored to correspond with their national flags. Besides the four hovering hosts, the revue also features an additional four macaws, six cockatoos, nearly 30 tropical birds, 12 toucans, more than 50 orchids, seven bird-of-paradise flowers, 12 Tiki drummers, and singing Tiki war god totems.
