Hey All!

I grew up in the 80’s, so I’m always excited to see a character I used to love as a kid coming out with a New DVD. On August 20, 2013, the hit CGI series, Donkey Kong Country became available on DVD for the first time ever. Donkey Kong is a peace-loving ape with a heart of gold who made his debut on the pop culture scene in 1981. He was also a video game as well for all of us original Nintendo players. I’m super excited to have the opportunity to share this show with my family!

The DVD includes 4 episodes from the 1998 Donkey Kong Country cartoon. The episodes feature both Donkey Kong and Diddy Kong.

The Episodes are:

  • Booty and the Beast (My favorite)
  • Barrel, Barrel, Who’s Got the Barrel
  • Bad Hair Day (Super Cute)
  • Ape Foo Young

I was sent a review package with the DVD that included some fun 80’s themed accessories so we could have our own little 80’s themed party to celebrate the release of the film.


I can’t tell you how much I used to love these snap on wrist bracelets when I was a kid. I had about a hundred of them!


Since I have pretty much nothing but boys in my home who would not wear any of this stuff, I put on all these fun themed glasses myself and snuggled up with my family to watch a few episodes.

When King K. Rool’s last attack fails, he comes up with a new strategy to steal the Crystal Coconut by cloning Candy Kong with an evil robot.  While trimming Donkey Kong’s hair, Candy Clone puts a hex on him that removes all of his strength, which now leaves the Crystal Coconut without a protector.  With time running out, Cranky must come up with an antidote and get it to Donkey Kong before King K. Rool and his army succeeds in their next attack.

Donkey Kong Country is still as fun as when it first aired. It’s timeless and kids will even enjoy it today. I know mine do.

Each of the four classic episodes runs 90 minutes. The DVD is available in major U.S. retail stores for $9.99.

If you’re a child of the 80’s and 90’s and grew up with Donkey Kong and want to share it with your own family I highly recommend you run out and get your own copy of Donkey Kong Country on DVD!
