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.

Magnificent

An Excellent conclusion to the first ep.

The animation is awesome, great culture references and jokes, although there was one that bothered me.

Hey, it's been about nearly over a year, when is the next ep gonna come out? I wanna see more!

I really love this... then again...

I really like where this is going. You guys should really try for television or something, maybe not with this, considering how esoteric the themes can be sometimes, but with maybe another video-game or/and animal show!

Speaking of esoteric...
Honestly I hope that you won't push the nintendo themes at the extreme for us people that don't know too too much about it! It's your choice, really, but I felt like I was missing something since I didn't know who was that Bubsy bobcat.

Maybe consider putting subtitles? Sometimes I didn't get what the robot small bird said.

By the way, what was up with that chinese dude?!

Finally, am I the only one that noticed the stricking ressemblence between Throwback (why this name anyway) and Donald Duck? I don't mind though, Donald Duck represents my childhood all alone anyway.

Last but not least, I honestly have to say that the music is really really good. The choice and composition (theme song) is simply amazing!!! You got to keep that up, I'm convinced it's part of this cartoon's success because it gives such an attitude!

Few I said all I had to say...I'm looking forward to the other episodes!
