Donkey Kong Country TV Series Heading to DVD

If you were a Nintendo kid in the 90s, you may remember that Donkey Kong had his very own TV show, once upon a time! Or maybe you intentionally scrubbed that from your memory, in which case, we’re sorry for bringing it up. But we had to, because it’s coming to DVD very soon!

Phase 4 Films has announced that they’re bringing Donkey Kong Country – The Complete First Season to DVD this May 12th. Here’s the announcement:

“One of the most beloved video game characters of all time is swinging onto DVD! Donkey Kong Country brings all your favorite apes to life in stunning CGI animation. Join Donkey Kong, the peace-loving ape with a big heart as he teams with best-friend Diddy Kong to take on King K. Rool and his band of Kremlins. Includes all 26 episodes from season 1.”

Ah, yes… the familiar and the bizarre, blended in one, with motion capture CGI at its very… earliest. It’s one of those shows that you really have to watch to believe that it was, in fact, on network television at one time. Seriously.

And have we mentioned that Donkey Kong has a lovely singing voice? No. We’re not kidding.

You’re welcome.

The Complete First Season will be available on Amazon for just $34.99. You’re pre-ordering this right now, yes?
