This is the first file (Part A) 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.

GET A NEW VOICE ACTOR, PLEASE!

Animation was good, story wasn't. I couldn't really stand the duck's voice anymore so I didn't watch part two.

Yeah

Im going to agree with everyone else here, it's how I felt and seems to be the general concensus:

Great animation-the rest kinda sucks. The story moves really slow, theres too much pointless filler, the storyline moves in a fragmented way, and that's generous because there isn't much of a story to begin with.

Waste of animating talent, and yeah, get a new voice actor for the duck. Seriously. Try making the jokes fit, there was some humor, but it was all just poorly executed.

'bout bloody time, man!, WooHaa!

I love this series (Despite only being two episodes in) and especially the coloring about makes it easy on my eyes. You have some shortcuts in there with the animation, but not as many as most flashes and there's a definte movemnt to the animation.

I love the plot man, kudos to it and while the voice his hard to understand at times, it's realy more becasue of the voice style it'self, definite 80's feel to it and I like the voice. Besides, the only part I couldn't understand was the very beginning, the first thingshe says about the lamb. As long as the voic went slow and calm, then it was fine.
