Web Video: ReBoot: The Abridged Series aka: Re Boot The Abridged Series
"Warning: Incoming Game that closely resembles Star Wars."
— Computer Voice
The Abridged Series of ReBoot, of course! Nearly all the characters are voiced by the creator, Saboooom, though in later episodes, other people were brought in to voice Mouse and AndrAIa. And then several more voices were added in episode 22.Originally removed from YouTube by Rainmaker Entertainment. Started its third season in mid-December 2009. Due to uploading difficulties with Episode 26, the series was temporarily moved to the ReBoot Abridged Facebook group here. Has recently moved back to YouTube here.
Eagleland: Turbo is always shown as Type 1, with a lampshade big enough to cover the Principal Office.
Fanservice: AndrAIa's main purpose in season 3, and she knows it.
Fetish: Dot's Game form in episode 19, mentioned by Bob: "I guess animating her tail must've been more important than animating her mouth."
Freaky Friday: In episode 18, Hex's meddling causes Bob and Enzo to switch bodies. Thing is, Hex doesn't realize this, leaving Enzo!Bob and Dot to find the paint program in the Archives, while Mike and Bob!Enzo have an... encounter with Hex. (Don't worry, Bob!Enzo manages to activate the Undo Command before things got out of hand.)
Larynx Dissonance: Played straight for the most part: Saboooom voices all the characters up until episode 19 (though he pulls off Dot fairly well). In episode 19, he has someone else voice AndrAIa, and later, another person for Mouse.
Medium Awareness: A few instances. One major example is episode 14, "Here Comes the SpiderBob!", where the Mainframers are excited for the beginning of season 2, while Megabyte is trying to destroy it.
Bob, episode 1: "I have a feeling Megabyte is about to make an appearance in a vidwindow."
Megabyte and Herr Doktor, episodes 12/13: "How long is it going to take to transfer the money?" "Oh, about one episode."
Enzo, episode 18: "I just interrupted [Hexadecimal's] scene."
Mouse: "Through l33t h4x0r skillz, I've made AndrAIa's icon able to reboot her in a game."
PSP: What Bob refers to his Keytool as. Startled by its abilities in the first few episodes, but eventually treats it exactly the same way as he does for Glitch in the original. Command names tend to differ, though, such as "Activate valet parking!" instead of "Glitch: Car!" (episode 17, to activate the "gearshift" in Bob's car)
Running Gag: Several, both single-episode and recurring.
Bob's obsession with "sexy parties".
Enzo's curiosity to "find out where babies come from" in early episodes. He eventually finds out.
Bob: "I swear, this is the last Game I'm ever playing." It finally comes true in episode 19.
Team Pet Frisket being an "unimportant" character.
Mike the TV showing random stuff on his screen via Manipulative Editing. Causes varied effects, including helping to win a Game by freaking out Bob's Mirror Clone with High School Musical ("The WOW Factor") and breaking a literalFourth Wall by showing a clip from a previous episode ("Attack of the Black Stripper")
The Computer Voice spoiling the contents of a Game, like in the page quote. Happens both on Game Entry (for a Game we never get to see in episode 1, it was "Warning: Incoming Game that you'll never get to find out the theme of because Megabyte's goons are going to stop you.") and Game Exit, particularly on Unrevealed Games. If we actually see the inside of the Game, it could be a continuation of the Game Entry comment (episode 5: "Blind Date over, you did not get laid."), or the default "Game Over" comment.
Bob saying "That's what she said!" in episode 23. Annoys Megabyte to the point of launching Bob into the Web interwebs portal right before closing it. Good thing Bob promoted Enzo to Main Character status earlier in the episode.
Bob: Holy mother of User, a thousand flights of stairs?!
YouTube Poop: Starting with episode 16, the intro of each episode includes trippy colors reminiscent of YTP. Starting with episode 19, the intro is cleaned up a lot more, making it look closer to the original intro while still making it obvious this is an Abridged Series. Watch the "Season 2 #2 Intro" here.
