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.

Awesome Flash!

This is a truly great Flash!

I loved the animation, the graphics were outstanding!

The style was impressive, and I enjoyed the retro feel.
Some of the characters were clever, like the robotic canary...

Keep up the good work!

I love this

Wow -- this is simply a great animation -- one of the best I have ever seen! I sincerely hope that this wasn't stolen or anything -- I gave it a five and I would give it even higher if I could. The two of you are amazing, you should enter competitions or something and make some money.

animation great, graphics great, sound great but..

The story kind of killed it, like in the last one too. You're a very talented animator/artist, so why not put some of that talent to use making something that doesn't seem like a blatant advertisement for Nintendo? Oh did I mention, great animation? Seriously, with your skills, you could do way better.
