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.

This is incredible! The most original flash ever! This thing ties with Pico's unloaded! The originality is unbelievable. How did you think this up?! If i was'nt as smart as i am, i would of mistaken this for a full length Disney movie! The graphics are incredible for something made on flash! This has a great futre of being a tv show or a movie! ;)

Old school goodness

Don't listen to anyone that dumps on this series. I love it. Great style and a production value that most flashes fail to even come close to. Glad to see you are still pursuing this series, I was hoping to see more. Please, please keep it up.

this was great.

i loved this. i kinda didnt like throwback's voice, but thats just me. my main cosern was that i nearly closed the window when the opening credits came on cos i thought that they were the closing credits! gonna lose alot of veiwers like that, i think. but those who stay and wack it all wont regret it. now to watch part B...
