Yugi and Yami at the YGOTAS third anniversary celebration

Yu-Gi-Oh: The Abridged Series turns three years old today, and Yugi, Marik, Yami Bakura, and the rest of the gang are busy partying it up! Even some of the most minor of minor characters made it to the celebration, like the guy who disguises himself as a bee, the kid with the pink shirt, and the limey kid from school. (The offensive stereotypes, along with a certain other abridger, however, didn’t make the guest list, lol.) Anyway, check out the YGOTAS Third Anniversary Spectacularmathon, only on YouTube!

It’s a little surprising to believe that just three years ago, the first episode of YGO: TAS was posted quietly and without any fanfare in the “Play the Damn Card, Already!” community and on Little Kuriboh’s blog. Who would have imagined that it would one day transform into such a huge hit, to be watched and beloved by thousands across the globe, fansubbed in Bulgarian, Chinese, Dutch, Finnish, French, Italian, Japanese, Portuguese, Spanish, and Swedish, and fandubbed in Danish, German and Spanish? (And that’s just from a quick search on YouTube alone. There are probably even more translation projects scattered throughout this vast internets!) LK probably wouldn’t have believed it. Getting 50 subscribers back then was enough to make him sweat. ^^;

Happy birthday, YGO: TAS! And thank you, Little Kuriboh, for providing both old and new fans of Yu-Gi-Oh! with three years of such enjoyable entertainment filled with big laughs and memorable characters.

  1. Thanks to all your work LK!

  2. Hee! Fun times.

  3. It was a great video! I love all of the callbacks to jokes from old episodes, and hearing “Cooking by the Book” playing in the background. :D
