QR–Cure–Quizzing Realms–438

A connection, after a loooooooooong time.

1. Clearly, this is the Idea jingle. And that’s one talented kid! Just tell me from where the music has been “inspired”. Simply the film will do.

2. Simply tell me which iconic (but later lambasted) TV show this screen-grab from “South Park” pays a tribute to.


PS: That was probably a dead giveaway for the connect.

3. Identify this gentleman. PS: That’s about the best quality of a picture of this individual I could find.


Hint: Here’s Akshaye Khanna depicting him on screen.
