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.

Terrible Adaption of the Video Game!
26 August 2002 | by (U.S.A) – See all my reviews

Now, I'm a big fan of the video game, Donkey Kong Country, so naturally I figured the TV show would be nice. It isn't! It's stupid! First of all why do the characters sing? It's like a freakin' Disney movie. But all the favorite characters are here: Donkey Kong, Diddy, Cranky, Candy, Funky, King K. Rool, Klump and Krusha. Also, there's a new Kong, Bluster. He owns and operates the barrel works where Candy works. Bluster talks big but he's a really a big sissy. Now, in this series, in every episode, King K. Rool is after the crystal coconut that Cranky has. Now where was there a crystal coconut in the game?? Dixie Kong, Diddy's pal, is here too. But her pony tail is shortened and she looks ridiculous! This TV series was a complete waste of both time and money! They just did it to cash in on the franchise. DKC had three games and was very popular, why not make a TV series? Now there was one episode I liked: Ape Foo Young, where Donkey accidentally drinks the potion Cranky had to make himself younger and it turned him into a baby. That was probably the only good episode. So in conclusion, this series is a terrible adaption of the great video game! Don't even bother to tune in!
