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.

I said it in the last review and I'll say it again

PLEASE PUT IN SUBTITLES! I have sound a 6 because the duck's voice is hard to understand!! I gave up watching this episode because I couldn't understand anything of what the duck was saying. Subtitles would eliminate this.



Job well done on this one, although I have to say the electronic voice of the small bird was annoying, and hardly understandable (which is why you lost points in sound). I also suggest adding options for subtitles.


this shit was great, keep up the good work and don't change a damn thing...aight.

Howard The Duck...eat your heart out!!!

I don't know why, but this character, Throwback, reminds me of Howard The Duck. Its an old 80s or early 90s movie. Some people may remeber it, others not.

Anyway, good work! I love the storyline and it definitely brings something new to Newgrounds. Good job and best of luck with the series.

wanna sound

nice stuff...but tell me:
