Jr. Klap Trap[1], also called simply Klap Trap[2] or Jr.[3], is an abnormally large (at least by the show's standards; his size would actually be perfectly normal for the video game) Klaptrap who appears in the Donkey Kong Country animated series. He is voiced by Ron Rubin.[1]

Due to his large size (approximately the size of Diddy Kong), this Klaptrap is never used as ammunition for a Klap-Blaster. Jr. has dentures; whenever he becomes an annoyance, they are removed by whoever he is working for, and whenever this happens he usually complains and whines about his hunger, though the words come out slightly slurred.

In "Booty and the Beast", Jr. Klap Trap ends up having his teeth stolen by Kaptain Skurvy; after this he attempts to regain them from him. Eventually Jr. happens upon Donkey Kong and Diddy Kong, who have been tied-up by Skurvy and his crew after they stole the Crystal Coconut. Deciding to set the two Kongs free after bartering with them, and explaining his predicament through a song, Jr., Diddy and DK set off to find Skurvy. Jr. eventually regains his teeth and eats Skurvy's entire ship to the point where everyone returns to the island. When he comes across Donkey Kong and Diddy Kong again, they are worried if he is still hungry, but he explains he is too full for dessert.

Eventually, the trio track Skurvy down, and while Skurvy and his crew are busy battling with Diddy and DK, Jr. manages to reclaim his teeth. With his dentures back where they belong, Jr. proceeds to devour Skurvy's ship along with everything on board, including several cannonballs made of solid steel. Later, he approaches DK and Diddy on a dock, worrying the Kongs that he will attempt to bite them, but he tells them he's no longer hungry "for today," followed by him laughing.

He later appears in the episode "To the Moon Baboon", where he was constantly bothering the other Kremlings about his dentures being confiscated. When K. Rool orders for the Kongs' time capsule to be destroyed, he gives the him his dentures back and offers to have him eat Bluster Kong's rocket (after Klump and Krusha's attempt to bomb said rocket fails). Diddy, however, distracts him by feeding him some regular barrels, and K. Rool punishes Jr. by confiscating the dentures again.
