Donkey Kong and his sidekick, Diddy Kong, star in a 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.

Did You Know?
The series only featured five sets of animals: primates, crocodilians, slugs, a parrot and flies. Dixie Kong's pet crab was mentioned in a couple episodes but never shown. None of the other animals from the game series appeared, although Rambi the rhino did show up in an animated commercial for Donkey Kong Country's Game Boy Color version. The ad in question featured updated version of the 3D models of this show's second season, so this is the closest viewers ever got to see how Rambi would have looked like in the series. See more
Since the show's CGI couldn't render too many objects, every crowd shot of the Kritter army is obviously faked in some way. Most of the troops would be unmoving, untextured models or 2D sprites rather than full 3D models. When the Kritter army was supposed to move, only a couple of them would ever be shown in a shot, or their numbers would drastically alternate between shots. See more
The channel Fox Kids aired a truncated version of the intro song, cutting it down from 1 minute to half a minute. This was partially done to remove the shot of Eddie waving around a lit match, for fear that children watching the show would imitate him. The scene from the episode Donkey Kong Country: Barrel, Barrel... Who's Got the Barrel
in which Donkey and Diddy teach Eddie to use a match was also cut for this reason. See more
