Haven't you seen 'The Way West', with the Pig, Monkey and Monk going to India to get Buddhist scriptures.
The Nine Immortals are on TV in Thailand too.
No, don't know 'The Way West'...but I read Chinese story about the arahant monk " Tang Sum Chang" with all his adventures....and also the arahant Chi-Kong traveling to heaven/hell ( a temple lady gave me the book...very interesting!!).
