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.

very good

but not great. I don't really get it all that well. I am following the series, but I really don't get the long drawn out angry oriental guy bit. I guess it might mean more if I was into computer games.
Hopefully it will make more sense later on.

Yeah!

I am so glad you had a bubsy cameo, that owned! I love him! Also the animation was superb! That whole angry asian bit though was kind of lame/stereotypical. But A good cartoon for sure non the less!

certainly better than the previous 2 installments

Deffinitly. Because it had less Nintendo references, and more of a mystery like story not completely revolving around his job as Nintendo blah blah blah whatever. Also, it made me want to watch the next episode. Hope the next one is as good as this!
