The first Yu-Gi-Oh! anime series (also known as Season 0) was an anime Series created by Toei Animated based on the first 7 chapters of the YuGiOh manga. It tells the story from a time before the card game had any importance, and a little bit afterwards.

It was eventually replaced by the second anime series, which preferred to skip all the first parts of the manga in favor of focusing only on the card Game arcs. Nevertheless, the second series does make some nods to this one which can only be fully understood if you've watched it.

The second anime series explains very little of this series' plots, with a good reason: before Duel Monsters entered in, this series was completely different, bordering more a G-Rated Saw than Yu-Gi-Oh. For this reason, both series can complement quite well without feeling you are watching the same thing twice (at least, until it gets to the card games).

It's also worth noticing that many things created by this series were later used as inspiration for later chapters, like the more common presence of Seto Kaiba as a villain. It's also worth noticing that this incarnation of Seto Kaiba is what inspired Noa(h), the Big Bad from the third series of the second anime.

It spawned a 30 minutes OVA, a few video games and a card game created by Bandai, (which would later be replaced as well by the newer card game).

Little Kuriboh is doing an Abridged Series of this series as well.
