The episode starts with Alex singing "Donkey Kong Country to you," an alteration to the "Happy Birthday" song, and the other two can't help but join in. Afterwards, Alex and Jirard apologize that they had claimed that there was no Completion Bonus to the game, as finding all the secrets adds a "!" next to the level name. Between episodes, they had done the special stages for the first area, Kongo Jungle. Discussion wise, They talk about the snack-cake company Hostess for a big portion of the episode, leading into the Saturday Question.
The majority of the episode is spent in the level Mine Cart Carnage, And after many tries and failing, Jirard finally beats the level, saying that he has a problem where the first time on a level he over thinks it, otherwise he can master games no problem. He gets stuck on easy parts for awhile, and when he finally beats it, Jirard usually blows through the rest of the level/game.
The episode ends at the "Stop and Go Station level."
- Winky's Walkway beaten
- Mine Cart Carnage beaten
- Bouncy Bonanza beaten
- Stop and Go Station beaten
- Winky's Walkway is actually the shortest level in the game.
- In the GameBoy version of this game, Winky's Walkway is made longer, but in the GBA version, it is the same size as the SNES level.
- Shigeru Miyamto wanted to name "Donkey Kong" something based on stubborness, so he chose "Donkey Kong," naming him based on a Mule, or a Donkey.
- John Kirby defended Donkey Kong in court against a King Kong copyright, and won the case. He was than given an executive postion at Nintendo, and he still holds that position.
