The Tiki Caves was the third episode of Season 4 of the The Brady Bunch TV series, also the 75th overall episode in the series. Written by Tam Spiva, the episode, which was directed by Jack Arnold, originally aired on October 6, 1972.
An archaeologist named Professor Whitehead traps the boys in the cave, somehow concluding they have conspired to steal his latest "find." Mike and Carol are able to track down their sons and convince Whitehead he will receive proper credit for his "find." A Hawaiian party wraps up the Bradys' latest vacation.
An archaeologist, believing the boys have come to steal his latest "find", holds them captive on the burial grounds where they are directed to return the tiki. After the girls reveal their siblings' whereabouts, Mike rescues his sons, then convinces the professor that they have no intention of claiming credit for finding the burial grounds. A Hawaiian party wraps up the Bradys' latest vacation.
As instructed by old Mr. Hanalei, Greg, Peter and Bobby go to the ancient burial caves to return what they believe is the bad luck tiki idol to appease the Hawaiian gods. The boys are in for a bit more potential bad luck as they are unaware that they are being shadowed by a mysterious and solitary man, who will resort to anything to get rid of the boys so that they can't or won't report what they've seen in the caves. Meanwhile the girls, who know what the boys are up to, have to decide what to do when the boys are gone longer than they should have been. Once Mike and Carol find out what's happened, they have to find out where the caves are hopefully to find a safe Greg, Peter and Bobby.
