Status Partially Found

Not to be confused with the Donkey Kong Country animated television show, DKTV was a programming block that aired in France from 1996 to 2001. The block was first introduced as "La Planète de Donkey Kong" ("The World of Donkey Kong") and centered around various children's cartoons such as Beetlejuice, The Addams Family, and Reboot with short segments. These included fake commercials, movie parodies, and music videos, many of which had CGI characters interacting with the real world and live action actors. This was achieved by using motion-capture technology to easily insert the models into the scene as opposed to animating them from scratch every time.

MediaLab Technology, the team behind DKTV, was also responsible for the television series. Because of this, both DKTV and DKC shared many assets, namely the models and animation. Despite this (or possibly due to this), nearly every skit only featured Donkey Kong, Diddy Kong, Candy Kong, Funky Kong, and various recolors and reskins of them, and only rarely would other characters from the show appear in some form.

Availability

Due to the nature of programming interstitials, DKTV has fallen into obscurity, with only roughly 40 minutes of footage available of the block.

Ah, late 90s nostalgia. Not as good as early-mid 90s nostalgia, but still good.

"Vous êtes sur... DKTV!!!"

I swear "DKTV" is a Danish TV station, or at least Scandanavian

It sounds like there is a separate English dub featured in the 8-minute video that is not the one aired on Fox Kids.
