Donkey Kong Country TV series returns to DVD in North America

Back in the 1990s, Nintendo licensed Donkey Kong Country out for a CG animated TV show produced by France 2 and Nelvana. The result was not pretty, and most people have tried to forget about it.

However, those of you with a morbid curiosity may be excited to know that a new DVD featuring three episodes from the short-lived series will be released in North America in October. The DVD is called Donkey Kong Country: Raiders of the Lost Banana and will set you back $US10.

This may be the first release of the series on DVD in North America, but a couple of single episode DVDs and one collection have been released in Australia and can be found for cheap.

Dragon’s Lair animated series now on DVD

Ruby-Spears’ Dragon’s Lair based on the infamous laserdisc game of the same name has now been released on DVD.

Of course, you can only currently buy it through Warner Bros. WBShop, which only ships to the US. However, we are led to believe that Dragon’s Lair will become part of Amazon’s CreateSpace MOD service like most Warner Archive collection titles. The set is produced from whatever masters they had laying around – it has not been remastered or cleaned up.

If you feel like using a proxy service to get around the US only shipping restriction, Dragon’s Lair will set you back about $US30 (plus shipping and fees). I assume you’ll need the ability to play R1 DVDs, too.

We’ll have a feature on the series sometime in the near future.
