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.

It still maintains the awesome standard set by the first one! Great job!


I agree with...Razma, Throwbacks voice does get incredibly annoying after long periods of time. Changing to voice to be a bit less lispy or something would be nice or maybe a little less plugged-up-noseish. But overall really good.

Really good

I thought it was good, interesting story. Good graphics, but I only saw up to the scene where throwback is talking to the sock puppet and the other guy, I'm sorry I just couldn't watch anymore. Sometimes problems can be so small and isignificant that they only become obvious AFTER they've been put to show. I couldn't stand throwbacks voice, it was simply too irritating for me to sit through the entire show. I'm sure it was very well done and thought out, but the voice made watching this a chore.

Little long for this site.
Low audio quality, with the exception of the music.

Everything else is good.
