Donkey Kong Country

Format: 3D
Season: 1, 2, 3
Episodes: 1 to 40
Length: 30 mins

A spin-off from the wildly successful Nintendo video game, this ground-breaking animated series is one of the first of its kind, using "motion capture," a system which combines computer technology and live performers to create very cool 3-D animated characters. The show features Donkey Kong, a peace-loving, hugely strong ape with a big heart but a small brain who lives with his friends in the jungle. They are plagued by the evil King Karro, who wants to defeat Donkey Kong because he possesses the Crystal Coconut, a mystical sphere that can perform spells. But, in Donkey Kong country, the good guys always win with a dash of know-how and a lot of luck.
