—Cranky Kong

Cranky's Cabin, also known as Cranky's Hut in the GBA version of DKC is Cranky's house, as indicated by a sign in the background. It appears in Donkey Kong Country.


If Donkey and/or Diddy enter the Cabin via the world map, Cranky greets them, usually with wisecrack about how slow the duo are or that game being too easy. While he rambles, he sometimes gives out level hints. These hints are random and usually involve earlier levels. Occasionally, Cranky breaks into a rant about how easy the Kongs have it, how much he had struggled "back in the day", with "three shades of gray" and his beard flow when he swings is a "waste of frames".

There is a Cranky's Cabin in every area of the game, with the exception of Gangplank Galleon. When the game was hacked, it revealed that Cranky had a lot of unused phrases programmed in the game.[1]

Cranky occasionally comments how he would invite Donkey and Diddy over but that the game does not have enough memory to allow him to do so. In the game's sequel Donkey Kong Country 2, the Monkey Museum, also operated by Cranky, seems to be the cabin's interior. Cranky's Cabin was renamed Cranky's Hut in Donkey Kong Country's Game Boy Advance port, and it takes place inside.

Cranky's Cabin makes a cameo appearance in Diddy Kong Pilot 2003. Cranky sits at his cabin when he speaks to the player after he or she completes a racetrack, a cup, or his Silver Coin challenge. The Cabin resembles a barrel, and it retains the giant Nintendo logo and Giant Banana from Donkey Kong Country.
