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.

Sublime

Faultless animation and excellent use of Flash's drawing tools. I guess this story is for kids because it didn't hold my attention for long but you get a 5 for including a Yazoo song.

Wow! Just Wow!

What an excellent usage of effects and animation. You will definetly get that a you've been wanting. I'm really suprised at this. It is quite rare that a duck would be the main character for a series. Once again excellent usage and good luck with your next episodes/parts of this series...

Awesome!

This was an awesome flash! Especially the graphics and the voice-acting. I thought the beginning was funny. Then it got a little worse with the humor. This was very original and the idea was very good. I guess I'll watch the next part. Overall 10.
