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.
I remember playing Donkey Kong video games when I was little, it is pretty fun to see characters come to life in this animation. Although my kids haven't play with of the Donkey Kong games, they still enjoyed watching the DVD. The episodes included: Bad Hair Day, Ape Foo Young, Booty and the Beast
Barrel, Barrel, and Who's Got the Barrel. Both of my kids were entertained by the DVD, but I would say that my 2 year old enjoyed it much more his 7 year old sister. I think the animation was probably not sophisticated enough for DD. On the other hand, the plot is easy enough for my little guy to follow and he has already watched this DVD more than handful of times.
