I remember when Tiny was only knee-high. She must have hit one hell of a growth spurt to be twice the height of Diddy.
Also, don't laugh. But when I was like 7 or 8 when I saw the previews for DKC2 (they had these preview consoles in stores like Toys R Us or Target, remember?), I didn't know who Dixie was.... but when I sat the hair and beret, i thought
"Who turned Mario into a Monkey?!"
Because for some reason, she reminded me of Mario wearing the cape from Mario World. She spun around so dman much in the preview too.
