Eddie the Yeti is delighted by the flame of a match stick.

Eddie the Mean Old Yeti, or Eddie the Yeti for short, is a fictional Yeti who appears in the Donkey Kong Country television cartoon. Like a few other characters featured in the show, he does not appear in the video game the show is based on, but is roughly based off of one of its characters. In personality, he seems to be based off of the Mangy Kong drone enemy, who threw barrels at Donkey Kong and Diddy Kong in the style of the original arcade game.

Living in Kongo Bongo Island's White Mountains (known as Gorilla Glacier in the game), Eddie is a solitary ape, differing from the other apes on the island in several ways, the most obvious being that while most of the apes are brown in fur color, Eddie has white fur. Wearing a bobble hat, Eddie usually walks around bearing a large club, which he often bangs things with. Donkey Kong Island as seen on the SNES version of Donkey Kong Country. ...


Eddie makes his appearance first known in the episode "Barrel, Barrel, Who's Got the Barrel?" In this episode, Bluster Kong, attempting to impress Candy Kong, snatches the Crystal Coconut from Cranky's Cabin, but accidentally drops it into Barrel 007 (a nod to James Bond), which is among a bunch of barrels he was shipping to Funky's Flights. Upon flying with the barrel, Funky drops it in the White Mountains, and sure enough, just as DK and Diddy come there to retrieve the Coconut, Eddie has already found the barrel it's in, and is happily banging on it with his club. Eddie refuses to give them the barrel until finally DK and Diddy offer him a match stick in exchange. (The song sequence in which they explain the deal was fortunately cut from the majority of the episode's airings on the Fox Family Channel.) Eddie promptly gives them the barrel, but after a confusing argument between Bluster and General Klump, Eddie reclaims the barrel, forcing DK and Diddy to chase him again. Unluckily, Eddie loses the barrel (and the Coconut) to a pack of Kritters, who then bring it to King K. Rool. (Fortunately, DK and Diddy manage to get it back.)

Eddie's loud club-banging seems to stem from aggression and rage, which seems to magnify as he gets older. In the episode "Cranky's Tickle Tonic", his club-banging gets so noisy that nobody on the island can get any sleep, prompting Cranky to mix up a potion called tickle tonic, a mixture "guaranteed to have even a mean old yeti giggling like a hyena." While DK and Diddy accidentally recite a spell that makes the Crystal Coconut float away, Cranky and Funky go to the White Mountains to give the tickle tonic to Eddie (it needs to have a secret ingredient added immediately before consumption in order to work), and K. Rool goes there to take care of Eddie himself. Upon crossing paths, K. Rool ends up swallowing the tonic (which Cranky and Funky have put in a snowball) himself, but his resulting laughter gets everyone chuckling, including Eddie.

Eddie since made recurring guest appearances on the show. He worked as a distant employee for DK and Diddy's Coconut Chill business after Bluster bought it out in "The Big Chill Out", and complained when the amnesia-struck DK, convinced that he was one of Kaptain Skurvy's men, stole his club. However, Eddie has shown some character development in the form of the theory that his anger stems from loneliness. In "I Spy with My Ape Eye", he falls in love with K. Rool's Robot Candy Clone, and writes in his diary about being asked to serve as a volleyball referee in "Follow That Coconut!" He also took on the role of DK's guardian angel in the dream-sequence episode "It's a Wonderful Life" (an obvious parody of the movie the title comes from).
