This is the second file (Part B) of Throwback the Duck Episode 1 on NewGrounds.com.

Thank you all for your enthusiastic support of the Throwback the Duck animated adventure series. The feedback for Episode 0 A 'Back Story was very strong and encouraging. We are deeply grateful for that.

Throwback the Duck Episode 1 picks up exactly where Episode 0 left off. As a newly hired journalist for NintendoNow, Throwback stumbles onto a dream job of classic gaming journalism. Expect an intimate look into the whimsical world that is the mind of Throwback the Duck. Despite his cheesy lines and disjointed interaction with those around him, Throwback's oddball charm has a way of dazzling many of the friends he encounters...except for a cynical little office helper.

Then there's the all important gaming factor. A familiar classic gaming face makes a cameo in this episode. I'm curious to know how many of you recognize or remember this character. His story foreshadows many of the themes explored in the cartoon series.

Production notes: Due to flash file size constraints, we were forced to split Episode 1 into two files. Hence we have Part A and B of Episode 1. Please watch the show in that order to fully enjoy it.

Also, you'll notice a subtle transition in art styles during the episode. Arthur uses a style know as "straight vs. curve" near the end. This is an evolving work, folks.

And with that said, please enjoy the show. Again, we look forward to your continued support of the series. Four more exciting episodes await you before Season 1 draws to an end.

An awesome sequel to Episode 0.

Ever since you uploaded Episode 0 I was eager to view ep. 1, and you fullfilled, well if not even surpassed, my expectations.
From the story it's kind of 'EH?', but what the hell the animation and style is great so it's a joy nevertheless, and actually there might be some interesting twists. ^^

needs improvement

the animation was great and it felt like a mainstream television cartoon accept the voice acting for the duck was poor and thus the whole ting suffered all i could focus on was that the duck sounded really slow and retarded lol

Love the Animation but...

... The Dialog needs some work, it gets a bit boring after awhile and i don't really like the guy doing Throwbacks voice, He just gives off that annoying you-don't-deserve-to-be-the-st ar-of-the-show type feel to throwback, which might have been your point, but it makes it really hard to like the character.

All and all i loved it, just a bit on the flaccid side on the dialog/humor.
