The characters have essentially one trait each, the voices are your standard high-pitched moe performances, and even the art is fairly dull; the character designs, aside from Shiba Inuko-san herself, are utterly forgettable.

Short animations, school environment, funny misunderstandings.
Both anime shorts about cute animals that can talk.
Shiba Inuko-san can talk directly to people, however Chi's voice is only heard by the audience and other animals on the show.
