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.

Its great animation

its great but the voice just doesnt really seem to fit throwback its kinda wierd and at some times annoying like it takes him forever to finish a sentence it seems and then he has no emotion to it either..... but good work on everything else

Way to ruin it!!

You had such a nice animation, so much hard work. You just had to f&(* it up with using ur own un-duckly voice for the main character. Make this one over get a voice actor, and cut out half the irrelevant content. Stick to the plot. Really I cant see how you could f up such good animation.


Great animation. Best I've seen in a while on NG. Keep up the good work. I hope to see more Throwback episodes soon.

Good except for one little problem...


Not Bad

It was pretty good wasn't bad at all actually. I had to give it a three in violence cause the dog got kicked but I liked the graphics and it was a good sound choice for the movie. but it was funny when the dog got kicked. Good job can't wait to see the next episode
