This is the second file (Part B) 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.

Good work

The animation is smooth, and the drawings are well done/ I hope you'll make a sequel soon.

Greater than the sum of its parts

10'd and 5'd

This is a series that i would expect to catch on adult swim, or G4. to those people who say that the writing is bland and unoricnal, let me say that it takes a while for the characters to develop and for their personalitise to mingle in the chemisty of humor. Also I think what you ment was for this to be a semi-serious series. Sure it may have funny PARTS, but it is not meant to be humouros as a whole.

I do have one sugestion and that is to tone down the ramming in to things gag. It's funny once or twice an episode, but it is realy not running gag material, especaily if you try to make it a running gag in one episode.

Other than that, it's fabulously animated, with nary a hint of tweening in sight. great work!

Please make more!!

Outstanding... I need to see more!

That was great!

That's the reason why I added you to my fave artists! And whoaa.....that Asian was crazy! lol

Holy cow.

Great graphics and animation, an easy-to-follow storyline, plenty of humor here and there, and lots of action as well. This is practically flawless. Keep up the great work on this, guys.

I can already tell this is going to be a promising series.
