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.

Genious!!!

This is great man! Keep it up! Some people are complaining about the voice acting, but I dont think its too bad. The quality of the animation more than makes up for it. It was so long since the last one I nearly forgot about it, but the obvious quality of this one makes it clear why it took so long. Feel more than free to take all the time you need, Id much rather have a long wait and a great flash then a short wait for a peice of crap. Using Bubbsy Bobcat for the first interview is a great idea. I remember Bubbsy was the second game I played on the Genisis after Sonic the Hedgehog. I really enjoyed his game, though he eventually fell to the wayside. I hope to see plenty more where this came from, now off to see then review episode 1B.
