Sam & Max: The Abridged Series is a Gag Dub and Affectionate Parody of Telltale's Sam & Max: Freelance Police games. The Abridged Series is created by a guy named David DeLorenzo (known as LACOSAM on YouTube). And like all Abridged Series, Sam and Max Abridged compresses each and every single episode of the actual series into an under-fifteen-minute "episode" - and the original episodes were already short to begin with! In the first episode, LACOSAM himself voiced all the characters, but later episodes have had characters voiced by other Sam and Max fans, including Gohaku (who voices Max from episode 2 onward), Remolay, Divisionten, and StrongBrush1.
Since Telltale currently has no plans to release a new Sam & Max game in the year 2011, LACOSAM hopes that this series will tide over fans of the famous suit-wearing dog and lagomorph until then.
The series can be found here.

- Alternative Character Interpretation: Harry Moleman and the Toy Mafia become evil furries, that Chuckles even points out are probably making people hate Furries more.

- Appeal to Obscurity: From Episode 4:Lincoln: May I add that I am voiced by talented voice actor Roger Jackson, while my opponent is voiced by William Kasten.Max: Uh... who's William Kasten?Lincoln: My point exactly.
- Double Standard: "Retelltale Games does not condone drug use of any kind - unless you're a fictional character, in which case, it's perfectly okay."
- "Not Making This Up" Disclaimer: Shows up in certain episodes, like in Episode 2 when Mr. Pennyworth has to eat a cow pie, or in Episode 3 when Sam and Max torture Leonard with "yo' mama" jokes.

- Sam: I have GOT to stop taking drugs.

- Jimmy: Make me a main character, dammit!
