I hope you all enjoy Throwback the Duck: A 'Back Story. This episode is the prequel to the upcoming Throwback the Duck animated adventure series coming this fall. The series follows the exploits of washed-up, self-proclaimed "Game Master" Throwback the Duck.
A 'Back Story finds Throwback sharing his life story from the unique perspective of the quirky duck himself.
While I did focus on adventure, tongue-in-cheek humor is sprinkled throughout the series as well. Ultimately, it's a celebration of the Saturday morning cartoon world and video game mascots of the 80's and early 90's. Thus, both the silliness and charm of these worlds are found in Throwback. Even the voice acting is designed to reflect the silliness and cheesiness of the 80's.
Arthur Gil Larsen has done a fantastic job of bringing the world of Throwback the Duck to life with his beautiful artistic talents. He is truly a gifted animator and a great friend.
The voice acting team is comprised of a diverse cast of characters in and of itself. They all did a great job with their (often oddball) lines.
Please enjoy the soundtrack as well. It's kicked off by a creative composer and animator Christopher S. Murphy.

Thank you all for your support and I look forward to hearing your feedback!

Very well done!

I'll start off with graphics...
Graphics were top notch... The use of shading on each character was very well implemented and the colors blended together to make a very stunning visual looking of professional quality such as chluaid (creator of works such as the YuYu and Prowlies at the River). Very well animated with a nice balance of frame by frame and tweening to create a nice, smooth effect. The speech animation was very well done in that there was an actual frame by frame jaw that moved adding more character to the already well drawn character.

Style...
Style had to be a 10 in being that the story was of movie quality, having a introduction of character, a conflict, a rising action, a climax, a falling action, and followed by a resolution. All these combined with a very original plot make this a very professional looking movie and very capable of moving onto a series.

Sound...
Very well done on a library of sounds. The songs selected all fit in with the mood of the scene. The only concern I had with the music was the use of "Elevator Music" by khuskan. Even though the song fit and is very well composed, the song is not fresh in the sense of it being used in 23 submissions as of today... I know this is not a big issue but I feel that the song needs to be less played for a while before it can be used again in a submission to keep it from being overplayed in my opinion.

Violence...
I gave you a 3 just because you had the 2 scenes with the cartrige being flung at the pikman's head and the playstation vendor's head. :-)

Interactivity...
A 10 for great use of menus and an overall good feel to that small click to the scenes and to play the movie. >_<

Humor...
I found this to be decent humor but well placed through out the whole movie. Such as kirby and the bathroom scene and the... husky... lady being picked up off the side of the road.

Overall 10 for a great movie to start off a hopefully great series. I wish you good luck in the creation of new episodes.

Outstanding!

This flash is superb! One of the very best I've ever seen. It was nice and long, and also serves its purpose as an excellent build-up to the main series. Keep up the incredible work!
