"Big monkey muscle!" - Uncle Julius in Saturday Supercade

Uncle Julius Is a character that first appeared in the Saturday Supercade episode Gorilla Ghost. He is the paternal uncle to Donkey Kong Jr. and Pinkly Kong. He lives inside of a city zoo


Uncle Julius is likely the brother of Cranky Kong. Not much is known about him except his relation to Donkey Kong Jr. and that he lives in the zoo.

His first and only appearance is in the saturday supercade episode "Gorilla Ghost" where he first appeared at the beginning of the episode to explain to his nephew and Bones about the Gorilla Ghost. That night, he, Jr, and Bones see that the Gorilla Ghost went to steal the elephants. The Gorilla Ghost came after Uncle Julius next. Donkey Kong Jr. and Bones tried to send him off, but got themselves jeopardized. To help, Uncle Julius used his "Monkey Muscle!" to reveal the Gorilla Ghost's identity. Aurora appeared and kidnapped Uncle Julius, Donkey Kong Jr., and Bones. After Donkey Kong Jr. distracted the Gorilla Ghost, Uncle Julius broke out of his chains and hid in some boulders along with his nephew and Bones. However, Aurora soon found them and tied them up again. Uncle Julius then simply used a sharp stone to break the rope, and he and his nephew pursued Aurora and the Gorilla Ghost on boulders, while ripping out the entrance Gates and bending it into a cage. After Aurora and the Gorilla Ghost were thrown in, Uncle Julius humorously named it "Crook Exhibit" Uncle Julius thanked Donkey Kong Jr. and Bones for liberating the zoo, and waved goodbye to the two as they continued their search for Donkey Kong.
