An abridged series is an animation--typically a movie, tv show, or video game-- that is edited to be a shorter and fandubbed, usually for reasons of comedic parody. They are then usually posted on video websites, such as Youtube. The first and perhaps most popular example is the Yugioh: The Abridged Series which was created by LittleKurioh. Abridged series are sometimes created from collaborations, such as TeamFourStars which is doing an abridged series of DragonBallZ.

Yu-Gi-Oh!: The Abridged Series is A YouTube series that has basicly made internet history. A YouTube member named LittleKuriboh made a Yu-Gi-Oh! fandub. This series was basicly Yu-Gi-Oh! In 4-10 minutes, except less gay. as a result of creating this series, LittleKuriboh was banned from YouTube by the YouTube Nazis. This inspired people to make theyre own fandubs, severly irritating the YouTube Nazis So much, That they only banned the GOOD abridged sereis creators, such as MasakoX, a co-creator of Naruto: The Abridged Series. Today, there are abridged series for nearly every anime on tv. weather its in Japan, or the usa, there is an abridged series of it.

as of December 1st 2007, there are 25 episodes, A legion of doom special containing all the villans of the sereis, a christmas special, a capsule monstors parody, and a Yugioh Abridged Movie.

A fanmade series of the Yu-Gi-Oh! anime, reated by the user LittleKuriboh. It follows the American plotline (mostly), uses recurring jokes, and points out plotholes and times when the writers just weren't thinking. The series condenses a 20-minute-long episode into a fandubbed 4-to-10-minute video. The writing, mixing and voicing process is done completetly by LittleKuriboh (with his fiance (known as Safty) voicing a character every so often).

It is often shortened to The Abridged Series, Yu-Gi-Oh! Abridged, and YGO:TAS. LittleKuriboh is also often shortened to LK.

The Abridged Series was originally posted on YouTube,com but the videos were removed after undue flagging. LittleKuriboh's account was frozen various times for unset periods, before the videos were finally banned, despite being protected by satire law.

The Yu-Gi-Oh! Abridged Series is now shown on their separate site: yugiohtheabridged.com.
However there are still copies of the videos (and LittleKuriboh impostors who attempt their own Abridged Series) on YouTube.com.
