Added DiffLines:

* WhatCouldHaveBeen: According to writer Erika Strobel, the reason for {{Creator/Nelvana}}'s collaboration with [=MediaLab=] was because the latter fired the original writers for coming up with scripts that were racist, sexist, and inappropriate for a children's show. Since they already storyboarded 10 of those episodes, Nelvana had to write around them.

Added DiffLines:

* FollowTheLeader: It was obviously based on ''VideoGame/SuperMarioWorld'', but it does have its own original elements, like a frontal rolling attack, minecart rides, and secrets hidden in the walls. Though some still slam it for being a ''Mario'' clone.

** Cranky was meant to be a lot nicer during development of the first game, as seen [[http://tcrf.net/Donkey_Kong_Country_%28SNES%29#Unused_Dialogue here]].

** Cranky was meant to be a lot nicer during development of the first game, as seen [[http://tcrf.net/Donkey_Kong_Country_%28SNES%29#Unused_Dialogue here]]. According to early concept art, Cranky was originally named "Grandpa Kong" and looked like a white version of Donkey Kong with a beard.



** Diddy Kong was actually originally going to ''be'' Donkey Kong Jr., but Nintendo rejected the redesign of the character, [[ExecutiveMeddling demanding either a closer design to the original or the new design be a new character entirely.]] Rare choose the latter option.

** Diddy Kong was actually originally going to ''be'' Donkey Kong Jr., but Nintendo rejected the redesign of the character, [[ExecutiveMeddling demanding either a closer design to the original or the new design be a new character entirely.]] Rare choose the latter option. The main difference between his DK Jr design and his Diddy Kong design is that he changed species (he gained a tail) and lost the "J" on his shirt.


Added DiffLines:

** The Kremlings originally had a more ''VideoGame/{{Battletoads}}''-esque design and were blue.


Added DiffLines:

** An unused plot for the first game was a crossover with Wario named ''Donkey Kong Vs Super Wario''.
