Donkey Kong Coconut Crackers was a canceled puzzle game based on Donkey Kong series for the Game Boy Advance. The game was developed by Rare, Ltd., was shown off at E3 2001, and was originally planned for release in November 2001 in the United States and December 7, 2001 in the United Kingdom. It was likely postponed ahead of time due to the forthcoming acquisition from Microsoft Game Studios[2] in 2002. Eventually, the game was canceled along with Donkey Kong Racing in August 2002.

The game went through many different iterations, with and without Donkey Kong attached to it, including the following working titles: Splonge, Nutcracker, Animal Cracker, and Sunflower. After the game was canceled, the Donkey Kong elements from the game were removed, and Rare considered reworking it into a Banjo-series spin-off titled Banjo's Jiggy Juggle, or a Sabreman title. The game was eventually converted into It's Mr. Pants[3], whose trademark was registered in November 9, 2001, and released in late 2004.
