A majority of gamers are familiar with Donkey Kong, one of Nintendo's core video game characters. The words Donkey Kong Country will likely remind players of their time with the classic SNES game. Unless they live in France, in which case it could also bring back memories of a 1996 French television show that featured CG-animated characters from the games interacting with real-life actors.
This clip from the show demonstrates just how well apes can sing, dance and generally rock. The show was originally called "La planète Donkey Kong" (translated as "The Planet of Donkey Kong"), and was televised in a variety of regions, including the US. Still, it didn't quite reach the level of popularity that it received in France, its country of origin.
