Kappa Mikey episode Ship of Fools
March 4, 2006
The fourth episode of Kappa Mikey is about a new Kappa Mikey game being released and Mikey wanting a copy of it. When gameplay from the game is shown, it's clearly based on Donkey Kong, featuring a background similar to the top section of the 25m stage, with Mikey instead of Mario, Lily instead of Pauline, and a large robot instead of Donkey Kong, but still throwing barrels. Kappa is shown defeating the enemy by kicking a barrel back at it, something impossible in the original game.
Animation Collective, that produced Kappa Mikey, didn't hold any right over Nintendo's Donkey Kong, but they only included a parody of the game.
