An abridged series basically took a show, replaced all of the voices with different people, and interpreted

the events of episodes differently. One good example was the web series Yu-Gi-Oh! Abridged. Made by the user LittleKuriboh from YouTube, Yu-Gi-Oh! Abridged took the plot of a show where the characters solved their problems by using a children's card game, made it so that most of the characters were either stupid or not as menacing as they were in the original series, and hilariously pointed out all of the flaws hat were present in the show. For example, in the Yu-Gi-Oh! trading card game certain monsters had to be sacrificed so that even more powerful monsters could be summoned and used. In the animated series based on the card game, that rule was not used in the first season. A fact that Yu-Gi-Oh! Abridged gleefully pointed out in its first episode. Because when one of its characters summoned three monsters simultaneously when doing so was against the rules, all that could be said was, "Screw the rules, I have money!". As the first episode of this series Yu-Gi-Oh! Abridged did not possess the quality in this episode as it did in later episodes, but it was still funny to watch.
