Donkey Kong Country was a short-lived French computer-generated television show starring Donkey Kong, Diddy Kong, Candy Kong, and King K. Rool. It first aired in France on September 4, 1996, and was originally titled La Planète Donkey Kong ("Planet Donkey Kong"). It premiered late in North America on August 15, 1998, and the original run finished on July 7, 2000; the show is currently airing in Australia as of December 2009. Strangely, many of the episodes were aired out of order, confusing many fans. Regardless of this, Donkey Kong Country won a publicly-voted award at 7 d'Or in 1999, for "Best Animation and Youth Program" ("Meilleure émission d'animation et de jeunesse").

The show featured all of the Kongs from Donkey Kong Country and Donkey Kong Country 2: Diddy's Kong Quest, except for Swanky Kong and Wrinkly Kong. There were also featured characters exclusive to the show, such as Eddie the Mean Old Yeti, Kaptain Skurvy and Bluster Kong. Most of the episodes can be seen on the website, the Donkey Kong Chronicles.
