Storyline

Donkey Kong and his sidekick, Diddy Kong, star in a new computer-generated rendition of the classic video game. Donkey Kong isn't too smart, but he is the strongest monkey on the island of Congo Bongo, thanks largely to his diet of bananas. He's charged with protecting the Orb Of Power, the Crystal Coconut, from King's constant attempts to steal it in his quest to rule the island - though he often seems more interested in luscious Candy Kong, who works in the barrel factory.

Holy Cow, A Nintendo Related Product Dic or 4kids didn't grab!
15 November 2008 | by (In a Chair in my room) – See all my reviews

It's hard to describe whether this show was good, or bad. it was kind of stupid to say the least. Particularly "The legend of the crystal coconut" which was a VHS that had 4 episodes, in bad chronological order. However, it delivered a donkey Kong feel, and i won't lie, i heavily dislike musicals (unless they have music that was written by either Slayer or Iron Maiden) but some of the songs throughout the shows were catchy, Particularly "Booty Booty" and "Big Bog Monster" and "the mirror never lies" (which reminded me of System of a down. I can't believe i can make that kind of reference.)

Anyways, Donkey Kong is a fun loving ape who seems to screw things up or do something wrong at the beginning of the episode and then has to right his wrongs, with the help of his nephew (or "little buddy" as he constantly calls him) Diddy Kong. Every now and then, his friend Funky Kong, his guardian, Cranky Kong, and his love interest, Candy Kong, make appearances, But they're not much more than just characters.

DK's mistakes usually end him up fighting King. K. Rool, with his bumbling right-hand Krocs, Klump and Krusha. but in some episodes, different enemies have come around, such as Captain Scurvy and his first and second mates.

I remember watching "The legend of the Crystal coconut" how many times when i was 10, and how i remember my dad eyeing the special effects (which were really good) the show had an engaging story for a guy at that age and it was Nintendo's character, so just watching donkey Kong for an hour and a few minutes was entertaining.

Nowadays, i'd recommend this to someone between the age of 7 to 10 who's really into Nintendo, because that's all it will appeal to. anyone younger won't really get it, and anyone older will be laughing at how stupid some of it is.
