The first page of the comic

Donkey Kong in When the Banana Splits is a four-page comic in the Donkey Kong franchise, published in the winter 2000 issue of the magazine Disney Adventures. The comic was advertised as being based off of the game Donkey Kong 64 and is a simple version of the game's story. Throughout the comic, various hints and cheats for Donkey Kong 64 appear, written upside down.


The story starts off with King K. Rool and several Kritters storming through the jungle, having stolen all of Donkey Kong's Golden Bananas. However, this occurs while Donkey Kong, Tiny Kong, Chunky Kong, Diddy Kong, and Lanky Kong are at home, so the Kongs easily follow the Kremling Krew through the jungle upon realizing that their bananas were stolen.

Eventually, the Kongs catch up with K. Rool and his minions and ambush them. Easily dispatching K. Rool's Kritter minions, the Kongs go after the fleeing Kremling king himself. Catching K. Rool, Donkey Kong manages to defeat him using his Super Duper Simian Slam. After K. Rool's defeat, the Kongs take their Golden Bananas back.
