Cultural references

  • This episode contains multiple references to real-life video games.
    • Level 1 of the game Samosa and his friends play has them fight Doctor Goti Sodawala as a Space Invaders enemy, with the level's playfield being a completely black background with pixel "walls" that slowly disintegrate with each projectile from Sodawala that hits them - just like in the game.
    • Level 2 is the iconic stage from the Donkey Kong arcade game. Here, the barrels the player has to jump over are replaced with dumbbells, a strongman from Chatpata Nagar is in place of Donkey Kong and throwing the dumbbells, and Dahi Puri Mausi plays the role of the game's damsel in distress, Pauline.
    • Level 3 is a castle greatly resembling the castle levels of each world in the original Super Mario Bros. game for the NES. Cham Cham being forced to wear a pink princess dress and being trapped in a cage is likely alluding to Princess Peach, a major Mario character who often has to be rescued in many of her appearances.
    • "Pakwanman" is a reference to Pac-Man.
    • Some of the arcade machines in the background resemble tetrominoes from Tetris.


  • After Samosa is hit by a dumbbell in Stage 2 of the arcade game, Dhokla's eyebrows disappear.
