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 Duck takes me back to Howard the Duck movie. Very nicely done. It's the best I've seen so far.


Throwback is a fucking great series and it has just started! Keep making them and keep up the good work!!!!!!!!!

Niice animation

Impressed, its smooth and not only is the animation good, but the music you used was great for the atmosphere you were trying to show. The humour was great, extremely good for not having to have anything bad. You make the characters very interesting
I must say it improved alot. Keep up the good work...

A true masterpiece.

This review goes to both A and B.

Beautiful work fuys, congratulations on Larsen for his animation and graphic quality and Gornoski for a great script.

We rarely recieve content this impressive. The humor was very nice, something like what more series need to have. The use of characters was fitting good in the story, the scary asian guy was... well scary, hehe. Bobcat is a good charcter, I have very vague memories of it but I still remember it.

I love the point you use a lot of content related to the 80's, I bet that were great times. Also using old-school videogame characters is perfect, I have a lot of respect to the old fashioned Nintendo games that sculped different styles we see today.

Anyway, in resume: Good movie, style, effects, voice acting, everything.

I hope you keep this stories going guys! Good luck.

Dont make any more!

IF YOU MAKE ONE MORE EPISODE MY HEAD WILL EXPLODE FROM AWESOMENESS.... OH! sorry, where talking past times arent we.... My mind will explode from Cajunga Radicalness. LOL. AND I WUV BUBSY! i had it for playstation though. and the guy below is right. im sorry but the voice acting is a bit sucky. but i think that the ducks voice suits him. you could perhaps stop pausing between each word? fluidity makes the pace, and pace makes it more exciting. Oh! and i thought... that duck looks like another one from a film... i forget his name? began with a "h". i think. :D once again. YOU ARE WOWZA!
