Santa Barbara/Beardsley has a long history as the suite of The Boobs. At least as early as 1979 during Meet the Suites, they stuffed balloons in their shirts and sang a song to the tune of the Addams Family theme. They have since been known as "The Boobs" and continue to identify as such today.


Santa Barbara was part of the largest chain of pranks during the 2005-06 year, which also involved Southeastern and Dakota suites. On January 21st, 2006, Southeastern and Dakota teamed up to steal all of Santa Barbara's furniture. They placed the pieces all over Robbie Hall, including numerous suites and the elevator. (Actually, t was Louisiana suite who moved their contraband Santa Barb furniture to the elevator.)
