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.

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!

People find this review helpful!


Good animation verry well done besides the voice acting it was really good and i enjoyed can't wait for part B keep up the good work.

Pretty nice!

Good stuff dude. The graphics in the background during the intro look like they were riped from on one of Ranma 1/2 opening or closing. Superb work anyway :)

Its almost great

It is a very good submission and as was said by the person before me its almost profesional grade. The sountracks sounded great and flowed seamlessly in and out. However, the voice for throwback could not necessarily be better but could sound less mechanical. His pauses are too longand there is a very monotone metalic ring to his voice. Not cutting you down again this was very well done, just saying what can be done better.

a tower of power and too sweet to be sour.

i loved the dusty rhodes reference - but the main mans voice annoyed me slightly - but a nice range of characters - keep it up dude.

p.s. - tito santana - I Arriba'd
