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 K. Rool'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.

Banana slammer!!!!
31 March 2017 | by billosaurusSee all my reviews

This Is a stupid, messy show that fails from the first episode to the last episode. Yet the sheer depth of it's failure comes out on the other side as an odd kind of success. We have donkey Kong, a hero, banana cream pie connoisseur, banana chomper, lover and idol of king Kong, collector of the planet of the apes treading cards, and future king of Kongo bongo island. He's incredibly stupid, and I mean the depth of his stupidity really truly is incredible. He thinks a pirate talking to him through a broken mirror is his reflection,making him think he is a pirate, and one time, he had his brain put into a robot, and it took a whole song for diddly to convince him to look at his hands and figure out he is metal. Donkey Kong has a teacher and possible (grand?)father, called cranky Kong,who is a bitter old git and is also one of the only smart people on the show.(I feel your pain, cranky.) In fact, cranky is a genius. Probably a better hero than donkey Kong. Donkey Kong has a girlfriend called candy, who looks different to her video game design and is also an aggressive, and sometimes manipulative bitch to donkey Kong, though she has a few tender moments and compliments him, sometimes she cancels dates on a whim over petty reasons that aren't even donkey Kong's fault.(donkey Kong, you can do better.) Diddy, an annoying though supportive right hand monkey of DK, is now stripped of his powers that he had in the games, and Is helpless like a little kid. Candy Kong works for a lovable ass hole, called bluster. Bluster runs his moms barrel factory, which candy plans to buy. Bluster tries to poach candy from donkey Kong. Dixie is a sweet, lovable little monkey who loves diddly Kong, and her pet lobster. Oppressing our heroes is king k.rool, an aptly named tyrant who is actually Honourable, dopey and a dirty coward deep down, but he can be vicious and deadly at times. He has general clump, the classic sycophantic soldier who takes k.rool's abuse into his stride. And krusha, a mentally challenged and child-like bodyguard with the hidden potential to be a heartless, diabolical genius. This show is goofy, dumb and proud of it. The stories are cliché but they acknowledge and make fun of these clichés. This isn't a serious or slick show, the animation is strange and surreal by today's standards, but so is the animation in the games. It simply reflects 1990s and early 2000s TV budget animation. I'm sure at the time it was amazing. The best merit are the songs. The devious bastard, Kaptain scurvy and his lackeys, the Italian-accented cutlass crock and the weird green crock sing awesome shanties about how awesome it is to be a pirate. Donkey Kong himself has an amazing voice. Metal head has diddly screech his lines, and it rips off daft punk's around the world, but donkey Kong's voice makes it worth listening to. I'm nobody's hero actually manages to be genuinely sad. Poor old donkey Kong. Most of the songs are epic, this show is very fun and charming, it isn't challenging, or epic, but its cute. The characters are interesting, the animation allows for some comical expressions, and of course, the intro, and all the music in fact, is kick ass. Hay-ho, look out down below. Here comes banana slammer!
