This is the first file (Part A) of Throwback the Duck Episode 1 on

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.

That was amazing

Rated 5 / 5 stars


Faultless animation and excellent use of Flash's drawing tools. I guess this story is for kids because it didn't hold my attention for long but you get a 5 for including a Yazoo song.


Rated 5 / 5 stars

Oh yeah!

Dude that was awesome! It almost sounded like an actual movie! I cant wait for part 2! keep up the good work!


Rated 5 / 5 stars

thats a doozie

great idea for this flash. i loved all the classic nintendo characters and i cant wait to see what you've done with them. the one i would love to see the most is Fox McCloud from Starfox 64. if you can do it in the near future, that would be great. great work on the im going to see part b of this episode


Rated 5 / 5 stars

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.
