Buried Treasure is the 9th episode of Donkey Kong Country.


Donkey Kong, Diddy and Funky find a map and soon, everyone wants to get the implied treasure. They all go on a treasure hunt and fight to get it.

Why It Rocks

  1. The TV show characters, based on their video game counterparts, are more likable than usual, especially Candy Kong, Diddy Kong and Dixie Kong.
    • Bluster Kong is also likable and hilarious in this episode.
  2. The songs, "Riches Galore (Let's Go!)" and "All I Want", are both decent and catchy.
  3. This episode is very well written unlike most of the episodes.
  4. The animation and voice acting are better than usual.
  5. Funny moments in this episode, such as Cranky Kong trying to enjoy his vacation but keeps getting bothered, and DK slipping on a banana peel.
  6. Most of the characters had good reasons for finding the treasure:
    • DK, thanks to actual good advice from Diddy Kong, wanting to use it to get Candy Kong a gift.
    • Funky Kong, wanting to use it to fix his plane.
    • Candy Kong, wanting to use it to buy Bluster Barrelworks, so she never has to work for Bluster Kong again.
    • King K. Rool, for his usual evil schemes, getting a doomsday device.
  7. The mine cart chase scene was fun to watch.
  8. Funny twist where DK reveals that he was the one that hid the treasure, which was his bananas when he was a DK Jr.
  9. Mostly good ending: King K. Rool drinks Cranky’w banana soda drink that attracts the bees that were surrounding Cranky earlier, and he runs away defeated, with Krusha close behind. Cranky decides to head home, so he can have some peace and quite. Also, this is one of the times DK has a good ending in the show, as Candy, Diddy and Dixie don’t get mad at him for leading them in a silly banana Hunt, and DK and Candy have a heartwarming moment where DK says they have each other, and they kiss. There was also a funny moment where Dixie is happy at the sight of romance and tries to kiss Diddy, but Diddy just walks away in disgust, and because he’s still young. But Dixie and Diddy still walk away smiling together. This shows Dixie is patient to wait for romance with Diddy, which is nice.

Bad Qualities

  1. Bluster Kong wanted to use the treasure to buy Kongo Bongo Island and have everyone work for him, which was greedy.
  2. There was one sour note on the ending, as Bluster and Funky Kong got stuck under a mine cart, and no one even bothered to help them get free.
