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.

BadAss Animation.

...But, i must admit i got bored... But that isn't a bad thing because you may have been making a serious animation, where as I am into Humor.

I've Been Looking Forward To This

I saw episode 0 when you first released it and was very eager to see where it was going. I like the off humor, though sometimes I feel like I'm missing the joke. Like the crazy Asian dude just made no sense to me. Not sure if it was supposed to just be random or if it was some type of referance. I'm looking forward to future episodes.

not bad

I can't wait to see the next episode. As far as critiques, the characters need a little bit more personality, they all seem a little bland, animation and sound were good, great job overall.
