Cranky Kong is the original Donkey Kong. He however grew too old for the whole thing and so his grandson (the current day Donkey Kong) took over. He is now reduced to selling unlimited stuff to his family. In the SMG4 Longplays, he only appeared in the Super Mario Galaxy 2 Longplay. He was stuck at the Shiverburn Galaxy after having escaped Drill Finger. He remained in his rocking chair throughout the whole Longplay and carried his cane with him. In the end as present DK and Diddy were heading back to DK Island, Cranky's son Donkey Kong Jr. carried him and his chair back.
