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.

Damn i was waiting for this movie THX:D^^

Throwback the ducks ROX:D

Good job dude(s)


Yayayay Duck meister.

The most anoying part, was the voicing of Throwback.
The michrophone was way too close to his/your mouth.

That parakeet really cracked me up. Awesome idea, loved when it went bananas!

Also graphics were really smooth, nice animations. Perfect music.
Nice idea and good originality.

my god

Huey Lewis AND Yaz?!

this could have been MUCH better...

i thought the graphics and all were too good to be ruined by the "cheap" sounds (throwback's voice, and other voices) and the idea a little lame.
this would have caught my attention a lot more if it had had more action.

just work on those and it will be an instant new grounds classic...

good job
