The DK connection

Or "The big ape's big escape"

Before there was Mario and Luigi, there was Mario and Donkey Kong. The original video game pair. The Italian plumber hero versus the large simple simian. In 1981, it probably seemed like nothing could seperate the two.

     Yet after one halfhearted sequel in Donkey Kong Jr., the two parted ways semi-permanently. As we all know, Mario went on to bigger and better things with his brother Luigi, eventually revitalizing the console industry with Super Mario Bros. Donkey Kong and son starred in the less than stellar Donkey Kong 3 and DK Jr. Math before being revitalized in the SNES years thatnk to the Donkey Kong Country series.
