DKC: Curse of the Crystal Coconut

Share Collapse

This year may have been Donkey Kong’s 40th birthday, but what a lot of people don’t know is that this wasn’t his only milestone, as this month marks the 25th anniversary of his glorious tv show. Exactly 25 year ago, the powers of antiquated motion capture technology, Canadian tax dollars, and the audacity of the French, joined forces to create the greatest show in the history of television, and I’ve teamed up with Bootleg Dubs and Napalm Records to produce this celebratory anniversary short!


This short was made possible with the help of a lot of talented people:

The score and animation are absolutely stunning. I don't usually do reviews, I came into this video with very low expectations given the source material and the usual quality of video game animations on this site but you absolutely nailed it. The smooth animation, The lighting, The little details in the background, the small references to the games and tv show completely blew me away. The characters all fell like they have actual weight and presence in the scenes. And the way the lighting and weather changes as the action gets more hectic all reminded me of the first world in DKC2. And its criminal this has 7k views I hope you uploaded this elsewhere to give it the visibility it deserves. I wish you luck on any future projects and hope you have a long and successful career. Well Done.

The animation on this is phenomenal! It's very cartoony with a very nice overall atmosphere! It was such a joy experiencing this for the first time!

Ahaha, wow, what a treat to see this show here! Hehehe ⭐️

Exceptional!

Nice!
