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!

awesome.

This is a fantastic set-up to a series. I'm impressed with the original premise and attention to detail in respect of the character. The artwork was pretty awesome, although there were a few things I noticed. Nothing major, nor worthy or mentioning. It's obvious alot of effort and planning went into the animation. Well done.

My only problem was the sound. The voice acting wasn't the quality it should have been for such a well animated segment. Throwback seemed to not have alot of emotion, and it almost sounded as though the actor playing him was nervous while recording the dialouge. This is the only problem worth addressing in my opinion.

Can't wait for the next one, until then.

Good luck

Best animation in the world!

I can't even begin to say just how incredible this flash is!
That scene with the Pikmin was hilarious! The world of Nintendo can be pretty harsh huh, but that dont mean this flash cant get a perfect score!
I give it the perfect 5 man!
