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.

COOLLL!!!!

Exellent graphics and sound

I would like some subtitles option, for the once who don't understand English so well.

Great episode!

Excellent

GOOD: I must say, you are a very good artist and animator. The graphics make it look like a cartoon that can be seen on television with all the detail and such. The animation was incredibly smooth especially with the movements and the sound synching at top notch quality. The sounds and music were professional sounding and the character voices were well suited.

I especially liked the appearance of Bubsy. He brought memories of my friend and I playing his game on Nintendo years ago.

BAD: None

IMPROVEMENT: None

OVERALL: A really well made flash cartoon that could be seen on television. You did a fantastic job on this piece of art.

good animation

but in my opinion thats all thats good with it, the story is just bad and it isnt funny at all, so its pritty painful to watch. the sound on it was tacky, and Half the time i dont even know whats going on, you cant expect everybody to know who throw back the duck is it takes some explaining.
