The show opens the same way as the original, but the song is interrupted by Iago, who tells them that the old act isn't going to do it anymore. Jose protests by telling Iago "We've done the same show!" with Fritz. When Iago's actions wake up Uh-Oa, Jose and the others briefly sing Hot, Hot, Hot as the Tiki Gods come to life. With Iago punished and learning his lesson that the Tiki Room can adapt just fine to a new audience, Jose and his friends happily celebrate getting their show back.
In Disney Kingdoms: Enchanted Tiki Room, Jose decides to quit the group and start a solo career, with the Tiki Birds scrambling to find a substitute and considering options like the Orange Bird, holograms, and their volunteer employee Chip. After Chip's failure, Jose decides to come back as long as they let him have the creative freedom to perform new material.
