Some trivia though. The ORIGINAL Donkey Kong WAS loosely based on the idea of King Kong. It was an early video game where the giant monkey stole the princess and a little Super Mario like fella (this was before he was named "Mario" of course) had to climb up to rescue her without being knocked down by the rolling barrels that the monkey would send down the sloped ramps.
Lots of different games happened between then and now, of course. "Donkey Kong Country" was actually a TV show (but based on the characters designed for a more recent Nintendo game of the same name. The show was made and aired in Canada, actually, in 1997 (in collaboration with a French company). It spread internationally thereafter.
