Abridgement An abridged series is a fan-made parody series using footage from the original series, filled with comedic dubbing and non-sequitur dialogue. It is called "Abridged" because episodes are not as long as the original episodes. Most of the abridged series that are created are based on anime and uploaded onto YouTube, which sometimes results in their takedown due to copyright infringement. The first abridged series, "Yu-Gi-Oh! The Abridged Series", was created by Martin Billany (better known by his screen name "LittleKuriboh") in 2006 and has since inspired multiple new ones. Famous examples include "Team Four Star's Dragon Ball Z Abridged", "Naruto The Abridged Series", and "Sword Art Online Abridged".
