So, I've seen a lot of good anime parodies out there; ranging from voice overs and fake dubs to full on flash parodies.

One of the more famous examples I can think of is the Juggernaut example that actually made it into the 3rd X-Men movie.

Billy vs SNAKEMAN (http://www.animecubed.com/billy/?86750)
If you haven't heard of it, it's an enjoyable little browser game that only takes a few minutes a day.

Yu-Gi-Oh Abridged (http://www.yugiohtheabridgedseries.com/)
A fairly hilarious take on Yu-Gi-Oh, I've never seen the series, but I found them entertaining.

Got any good ones to share?

Team FourStar (http://www.youtube.com/user/TeamFourStar)'s Dragonball Z: The Abridged Series is the best abridged series after Yu-Gi-Oh! (it's an all-star team with people from the abridged series of Naruto, Yu Yu Hakusho, and a ton of others including LittleKuriboh himself as the narrator)

Girlchan in Paradise (http://www.newgrounds.com/portal/view/484273) is also a hilarious parody of shonen fighting anime (particularly Naruto and DBZ) and poor dubs, from the creator of Metal Gear Awesome.

Naruto: The Abridged Series is another good Abridged Series (I'm pretty sure it was an early Abridged Series also, before all kinds of people jumped on the bandwagon); the guys who did that also worked on TeamFourStar's DragonballZ Abridged. Unfortunately, it's been really stalled, likely due to their work on other things, including DBZ Abridged. Honestly, the only Abridged Series I really pay attention to are Naruto, Yu-Gi-Oh, DragonballZ, and Phoenix Wright: Abridged Attorney (which isn't as good as the previous ones but still has some moments of pure brilliance).

I cannot shill for hbi2k enough; both Gantz Abridged and Berserk Abridged are absolutely brilliant. He's also working on Vision of Escaflowne Abridged, but that one's kinda hit and miss. Beyond that, GanXingba's Avatar Abridged is pretty funny, and he has some decent other humor on his Youtube channel.

I wonder why most parodies are of anime, when the people making them have probably been around American cartoons longer.

...oh God, can you think of Sponge Bob Abridged?

My friend mentioned Excel Saga, but I've only seen that last episode which was a clusterfudge of randomness.

Its because anime has an overarching story and a tendency to be extremely long-winded.Hence, ripe for abridgment.

The main difficulty with live-action abridged series is that you can see the shapes peoples' mouths are making. Thus, it becomes a bit more difficult to 'listen' properly. Anime, which just shows lip flaps, is a lot easier for that.

Avoid Avatar the Abridged Series like the plague. When the show you making fun makes fun of itself better than you know you suck.

I'm sorry that you didn't like it; the comic genius of the Avatar creators notwithstanding, I enjoyed the series from the first incident of Optimist and Skeptic.

I dislike the voices he uses and just can't stand when people use racist characters and think that makes them clever. IE Uncle is Jewish haha it to laugh

I can't argue with the voices point; it's just a matter of how poor of acting you can tolerate. As for the Jewish Iroh thing, I didn't see that as a joke, just as a simple way to distinguish him from the other characters, as, like you pointed out, his voice acting kinda sucks.

So why do you think American cartoons not parodied as often?

They are less episodic and most are already comedies

Because most of them are jokes in the first place. Making a parody of a parody makes no sense.

I think Avatar Abridged is hilarious, I mean what's so bad about the Iroh being Jewish it does lead to some rather funny jokes. There actually are parodies of american cartoons, if you want a good spongebob parody just look up spongebob censored. Several people do it & it's basically just bleeping out words at certain intervals, still funny though.

Death Note abridged by Team DN is pretty funny. Not to mention they have actually shown improvement, the original is rather hit & miss but now at episode 11 they're doing pretty well with one of my favorite being Mello's 'Come ye' child services' song from the Christmas special.

Yeah, Berserk abridged is amazing. For added humor, the outtakes from the english dubbing of the anime are also priceless.

I can only agree on nothing beating the original abridged series by TAFKALK.
Naruto is also done pretty good, though I feel a decline in the latter episodes (Shipuudden never really appealt to me that much) Also Death Note is done quite well.
Another one I enjoy quite a lot is GWing TAS (Gundam Wing) which is even enjoyable if you do not know the series (though much more f you do) Also, there's an Mteal Gear Solid series which is rather neat. Sadly the GGundam parody is not on the same level but I guess the 'parody a parody factor' kicks in there.

Of course, I know. I was just referring to him as The Artist Formerly Known As Little Kuriboh, since... yeah, he's not going by that name anymore, as far as I know. (Okay, maybe it chould rather be The Account Formerly...) (Am I really that old knowone else rembemering TAFKAP?)

Toei Animation seemed to order a Cease and Desist order to youtube who suspended the account. According to Lanipator at least. (http://lanipwned.blogspot.com/)

Yu-Gi-Oh! Abridged by LK and Naruto Abridged by Vegeta 3986 and MasakoX instantly come to mind, and then of course Deathnote Abridged is also good.

I've noticed that FMATAABMS (Fullmetal Alchemist The Artistically Abridged By Men Series) by ArtisticMen hasn't been mentioned yet. It was good, quality and funny, but then Youtube banned their original account, so they made a new account here (http://www.youtube.com/user/SonsofSatire) and started abridging video games like Final Fantasy VII: Crisis Core, Metal Gear Solid, and Final Fantasy VII.

The problem is, that Youtube will delete Abridged Series because they don't recognize legitimate works of parody, which is what happened to Little Kuriboh's old account (His new account is CardGamesFTW (http://www.youtube.com/user/cardgamesftw?blend=1&ob=4)). Same thing with Vegeta 3986 and MasakoX (Now Vegeta 8639 (http://www.youtube.com/user/Vegeta8639) and MasakoXtreme (http://www.youtube.com/user/MasakoXtreme) (As far as I know anyway) respectively. ArtisticMen also was Youtube'd, and was going to upload their videos on DailyMotion, but stopped after the third episode. A new Team Four Star Account was made here (http://www.youtube.com/user/Tfsdbzabridged).

Okay, done talking.
