Donkey Kong

About This Project

Mario was originally a carpenter, not a plumber as he became later with the introduction of Mario Bros. The word “donkey”, in Donkey Kong, is a play on the Japanese word for “stupid”. Pauline is the name of Mario’s girlfriend in Donkey Kong. In the Japanese version, her name is Lady, but she got her name changed when Nintendo released the Famicom version. Another story on how the game’s name evolved was that it was supposed to be “Monkey Kong”, but due to a barely legible fax transmission, the screenprinters created thousands of pieces of artwork that read “Donkey Kong” instead. Since the manufacturers were in a rush to get the game released, they opted to change the game’s title rather than wait for the artwork to be reprinted.
