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.

WTF?

ok... this was pretty odd for my liking. I mean, everythings quite, it's very slow, boring and just... crappy. The graphics were excelent though. What I'd reccomend doin is have a friend who can write something decent write the script and have you animate it. You're very good at animating but the story its self SUCKED!

i gave myself the leisure of reading some reviews for this movie before i watched it. and i agree with most of these people. the art work is great but the voice work just flat out sucks. and the guy who does the duck is a horrible voice actor. the character designs are pretty stupid too just for the fact there is a sock puppet and a half robot, half parakeet. and another thing with the animation is that i understand you are good at designing but there are very few scenes where the duck or anyone is walking with a full body shot and i caught some "south park bobble walking" at one point. most of the movie are still shots with the mouths moving and some hands or something moving.hate it
