Animated adaptations can vary in degrees of faithfulness to the original source. By using different mixtures of genre, characters, settings, plot, and conflict, an artist can make new, original works. Parody, which is a type of adaptation that mimics another work, can provide a means to make social, cultural, or self-referential commentary. In deploying some general concepts of adaptation in conjunction with some techniques of parody, animators can find a means to make new, engaging animations. This thesis is an analysis of how parody can be accomplished in animated adaptations of live action. The animated visual component uses adaptation and parody techniques to make a new original animated short called Madcow.
