The 14th season of "Family Guy" recently aired an episode called “Road To India”, which was the show's first Indian-themed episode.
It has also been in the news for a cameo by Anil Kapoor.
The opening credits have the best of Indian stereotypes, starring a sadhu and the side-effects of spicy food...
Riding in on elephants, baby Gandhi?!
And Dhalsim from Street Fighter, for some reason!?!
The episode revolves around Brian falling in love with an Indian call centre executive and travelling to India with Stewie to woo her.
During one of those calls to India, Stewie interrupts Brian to ask this stupid question.
They eventually do make the arduous journey over the Atlantic (and the Taj Mahal) to India, specifically New Delhi.
And of course, this is what they first see...
With a reference to the crowds...
And a few more to the crowded public transport.
At some point, Brian expresses a craving for steak and they have to fight the cow vigilantes by... erm... switching them off with some sort of Bindi button?
I don't remember the last time I ever saw a board that read "khareedne wala" (I guess they mean customer?) in India.
Brian FINALLY meets Padma who seems to be the victim of the Padma Patil genre of fashion.
After a special appearance by Drummer Ganesha...
And a snide remark about Indian classical music...
The scene cuts to an impending engagement between Padma and a random guy, Viraj, where Stewie literally dresses up in an Aladdin costume.
There are also some monkeys at the party because why the fuck not.
At some point, they try to raise money by removing tapeworm and GUESS HOW THEY TAKE IT OUT.
What would they call this though? Worm charming?
