Dragon Ball Z Abridged is the title of TeamFourStar's abridged series based on the Dragon Ball Z anime. This abridged series is one of the most successful series created in '08-'09 and is featured on That Guy with The Glasses official website under "Inked Reality".

Dragon Ball Z Abridged is a direct parody with most characters and plot lines remaining relatively unchanged. Origins of concepts and names within the series often alternate between the FUNimation Dub, and the original Japanese version. For example, the character Tien is sometimes referred to as Tenshinhan, which is his name in the original Japanese version. Some original attack-names are preserved as well, such as Tien's "Ki-Ko-Ho," instead of "Tri-beam."

ProductionEdit

Theme songs and eyecatchesEdit

TeamFourStar's Dragon Ball Z Abridged uses a shortened version of "Cha-La Head-Cha-la," the theme song of the original Dragonball Z anime's airing from episode 1 to the end of the Cell arc. From the end of TeamFourStar's episode 18 to episode 23, the opening and ending theme is replaced with "Sanjou!! Ginyu-Tokusentai!!", as the Ginyu Special Squad is featured in those episodes; at the end of episode 23, the normal ending song resumes.

Note that in the end of Episode 18, the Ginyu theme plays behind the dialogue, and there is no regular eyecatch; the ends of Episodes 19-22 feature a Ginyu eyecatch before reverting to the regular eyecatch at the end of Episode 23.

DisclaimerEdit

At the beginning of every single episode, there is a disclaimer that says "The following is a non-profit fan-based parody. Dragon Ball, Dragon Ball Z and Dragon Ball GT are all owned by Funimation, Toei Animation, Fuji TV and Akira Toriyama. Please support the official release." Originally, it was a heavily edited voice reading the disclaimer but starting from Episode 17 a character reads it, but only for the actual episodes; the edited voice remains for any special. As of "Cooler 2", the edited voice has been replaced by Kaiserneko's normal voice and as of Episode 44, the characters no longer say "non-profit". The reading of the disclaimers was often times a forshadowing of the said character's death or the fact they would be the focus of the episode.
