The real protagonists of the episode are however Bender and his love affair with the Countess De La Roca, who, like a new Leonardo di Caprio and Kate Winslet, face a premature separation when the ship sank into a black hole due to captain Zapp's inexperience.

The Simpsons S13 E15 “Blame it on Lisa”

Simpsons' holidays are epic. Episode after episode, the entire family created by Matt Groening has been around half the world: from Tokyo to Las Vegas, from Ireland to New York, from Australia to London, from Bangalore to China and twice in Brazil. The first of this double act dates back to 2002 when Marge & co. leaves Springfield to go in search of a small orphan named Ronaldo, adopted from a distance by Lisa.

Once landed in the South American country, they discover that all men are bisexual and monkeys torment people in the street. During the episode the family is robbed by a gang of babies, Homer is kidnapped by a taxi driver, Bart remains "hypnotized" in front of the TV by a children's show entitled Teleboobies and then he is swallowed by a snake... in short, a satirical mix of all the main stereotypes associated with Brazil.

Result? A diplomatic incident, with the Rio tourism council threatening legal action against the show for having damaged the Latin American country and the cartoon executive producer, James Brooks, who apologizes to the beautiful city and the people of Rio de Janeiro and offers to invite the President of Brazil to Fox's Celebrity Boxing. Despite the brawl, the Simpsons will return to the country in another episode, when Homer will be the referee at the Football World Cup.

Fun facts: The original title of the episode, "Blame it on Lisa" references the 1984 film with Michael Caine and Demi Moore, "Blame it on Rio".

Rick And Morty S03 E06 “Rest and Ricklaxation”

After a long and stressful adventure, both Rick and Morty decide they need a break. The solution? Relaxing in an alien spa. Here the couple decides to try a machine that removes all the toxicity, but, in reality, they are split in two: Regular Rick and the rude, lying, ingenious Toxic Rick; the regular Morty and the nervous, pathetic, toxic Morty. The disaster is assured and, in the course of the episode, Morty even becomes "The Wolf of Wall Street"-esque broker.

Fortunately, the happy ending is resolved and "Rick And Morty" confirms one of the most surreal cartoons ever.
