Donkey Kong Country is a new 3-D animated series based on the popular Nintendo game of the same name. Donkey Kong;a.k.a. DK;is to be the next ruler of Congo Bongo. The cast includes Cranky Kong;keeper of the Crystal Coconut; Candy;a true '90's woman and DK's "gorilla my dreams;" Diddy Kong;DK's hyper-but helpful ring-tailed monkey friend and Funky Kong;a surfer ape with a Zen way of looking at things. One of the first of its kind;this groundbreaking series is being produced using "motion capture," a system which uses computer technology and live performers to articulate animated characters.
Season 1, Episode 40
Wow! Donkey Kong has been elected as Future Ruler of All Future Rulers! As Donkey Kong says;"It was an honour to just to be nominated". Of course this means he has to leave Kongo Bongo Island. Cranky and Diddy take this opportunity to throw Donkey Kong a huge farewell banquet. All of Donkey Kong's friends turn out to bid the big guy adieu. Everyone has fond memories of Donkey Kong;though not all of them complimentary. The Lizards have a few things to say about Donkey Kong as well. Could it be they'll miss Donkey Kong just as much as everyone else?
Season 1, Episode 39
It's "All Fool's Day" on the Island of Kongo Bongo and it seems Cranky is out to get everybody. Collapsing chairs;whoopie cushions;catapulting cream pies';no ape is safe from his practicle jokes. Donkey Kong;Diddy and Candy have had enough. It's time to fight fire with fire. However;the joke is still on them when they hand over the Crystal Coconut to King K. Rool...thinking he's Donkey Kong...and Krusha and Klump think Donkey Kong is King K. Rool. Confused? Seems All fools Day" is turning everyone into fools.
Season 1, Episode 38
Donkey Kong is having one of those days. Seem like nothing he does is right - breaking Funky's surfboard;locking up the Crystal Coconut and losing the combinations;losing Diddy's lucky autographed ball. It's all going wrong. Maybe a nap will make the bad karma go away? Unless;of course;he sleeps through the annual Future Ruler of Kongo Bongo Barbecue Banana Dinner being held in his honour! Donkey Kong begins to think that Kongo bongo would be better off without him. And that's exactly what happens when Donkey Kong wakes up from a bump on his head. No one can see or hear him! Kongo Bongo Island has gone haywire - Diddy is running an evil empire;King K. Rool is trying to protect the Papier Mache Lily Pad;AND CANDY IS MARRIED TO BLUSTER!! Something tells me that this is not a good thing.
