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.

Very nice

Looking forward to the next episode, I trust you'll make one seeing as you have so far continued this series. So what's with the crazy asian man? Is he some how tied into this, or is he just for laughs?

David-Gornoski responds:

The crazy chinaman is simply one of those things only oddballs and kooks like Throwback would witness. You ever met a really kooky oddball or homeless guy who has all kinds of outlandish amazing stories and adventures to tell? You always wonder "how the heck do they run into this stuff?!?!" Well this is kind of like stepping into the shoes of one of those guys.
Throwback's like a magnet for crazy people, creatures, events, and randomness.
