Straw Hat Theater is made up of five shorts that aired alongside One Piece episodes 279 through 283 in October 2006. They are based on Oda Eiichiro's side comics that were drawn when he was given three sheets of blank paper by his editor and told to draw anything.

The first short is about Chopper Man infiltrating the lair of the evil Dr. Usodabada. The second short is a news report on what food was like for the Straw Hats before Sanji joined the crew. The third short investigates the hypothetical situation of "if the Straw Hat Pirates were Obahan, who would be the strongest?" The fourth short is about the bosses of the Luffione, Zorocia, and Sanjino families fighting for control. In the fifth short, all of the Straw Hats are carefree monsters.

Basically, these mini-specials were made purely for fun, and they are taken directly from mini-manga specials that Eiichiro Oda-Sensei himself made by animating them, and giving them life through the seiyuu, music, etc.

The stories are probably the weakest area of them, as every mini-special (save the 2nd one) is set in a alternate dimension using the Straw Hat Crew (other than poor Franky, as he wasn't a member during the time Oda-sensei made any of these...). All of the stories are crazy random, especially Obahan Time. But they the characters' follow along what's already established by them in the series, such as Sanji being read more

Both are short specials made as a spin-off of original series. Both have chibi-styled characters and paper theater feeling. Both are mainly for comedy purpose. 
Both take characters from otherwise shounen anime and put them in a cute, chibi animation style. Both are comedy centered with no big plot. Both have short episodes. 
Both are specials with short episodes that puts characters of otherwise shounen anime in chibi style animation and comedy setting. 
Both are short specials which takes characters from othervise shounen show and puts them into cute, chibi style. Both shows are comedy more about dialogue than story. 
Both are short specials with characters from the parent anime. Both have absolutely different style of art than the parent anime. Both are comedy and both consist mainly of dialogue.
