The series itself has been re-fandubbed or subbed into French, Portuguese, Swedish, Polish, Arabic, and, of course, [[RecursiveAdaptation Japanese]] (among others). The series has run for four complete seasons and is set to conclude with a fifth season, which began airing in 2021.˛˛After some time, Kuriboh eventually went to doing the same process with [[Anime/YuGiOhFirstAnimeSeries "Season 0"]] (the ShortRunner based more closely on the original manga), giving special attention to the AdaptationDisplacement and animation quirks of the earlier series. He has also abridged the first-series/"Season 0" movie and the [[Anime/YuGiOhTheMoviePyramidOfLight second-series movie]].˛˛Videos of each episode can be found at Kuriboh's Website/YouTube [[ account]]. Thanks to the ''wonderful'' world of copyrighted material dispute, the account has been terminated and reinstated '''[[OverlyLongGag a ridiculous number of times]].''' Also note that the current channel was originally made as a joke to be Yugi's in-universe channel; the original channel for the series too, was banned and unbanned repeatedly, which is why the show was moved. There is also his side channel [[ ObeyMyRod]], home of the LetsPlay/MarikPlaysBloodlines videos, and [[WebVideo/NarutoTheAbridgedComedyFandubSpoofSeriesShow Ninjabridge]], which features many jokes and cameos from YGOTAS (albeit with more uncensored swearing).˛˛[[TheWikiRule Has its own wiki]] [[ here]].˛˛There is an additional subpage for [[ShoutOut/YuGiOhTheAbridgedSeries Shout Outs]].
