Other well-known stereotypical portrayals come to mind: the Indian scientist in 'Short Circuit' who is played by Fisher Stevens- in a strange mishmash of accents that incongruously come from different regions of India.
I will agree that Disneyfication has been the worst in perpetuating the ethnic stereotypes in their movies and even in their serials running non-stop on their channel- a recent rerun of "The Suite Life of Zack and Cody" has an execrably accented pseudo-Indian prince, played by a kid of Indian origin who probably speaks normal American-accented English in real life, but has been ask to produce an Apuesque accent for the role.
