The Origin of Donkey and Diddy Kong

by Steve Napierski to Comics

Or more accurately titled: How Donkey and Diddy Kong Got Their Clothes. It’s a rather morbid way to look at the origins of the main Donkey Kong Country‘s protagonists, but it’s still funny.

This comic reminds me of the Spümcø Ranger Smith cartoon Boo Boo Runs Wild. In it, article 1 section 3 of the Jellystone Handbook states that forest animals must not go naked; that each beast must wear at least one item of human attire. Don’t remember that? I included the entire video below. If you don’t want to watch the whole thing, just jump to minute point 1:53.

    How come they sort of remind me of Ren and Stimpy, the drawing style anyway. And Boo-Boo looks funny.

      The same company that did this cartoon, Spümcø, is the very same company that did Ren and Stimpy.
