Fullmetal Alchemist: Brotherhood sets itself apart from the acclaimed "original" Fullmetal Alchemist series back in 2003 by staying loyal to the manga. An important part of the manga was the 4-Panel Comic section at the end of every volume. These humorous comics were comedic parodies of significant events that transpired in the current volume.

Their ability to take a serious event that elicited major emotions from the readers and turn them into something funny and laughable was something that the 16 episode, 2 minute "Fullmetal Alchemist: Brotherhood - 4-Koma Theater" OVA series brought back with the DVD/BD releases of the show.

Amusing little clips that parody parts of the anime... if you miss the characters after finishing Brotherhood, this is a nice way to bring em back. The best one by far was Roy Mustang's rap! And I wish there was more Ling Yao in them. =) But sure, it'd take maybe 40 min of your time, just watch em! It's stupid sometimes, funny sometimes, but overall it's just nice to see the characters again.

I love this short tittle about fma
is really interesting, is a compilation (in parody mode) of little parts of manga. and her mangaka appear (in form of cow )

in art, is really funny, using very chibi images and absurd images for represent dramatic parody in all chapters.

and the chapters be shorts 1 min minim and max 1.20

about the sound, have quality of series, and the end is Al an Ed sing "chan chan chan"

the characters are of series original. minus the cow

short and funny, very recommended

(if you're no understand me, I'm really so sorry my English read more

Sword Art Offline and FMA: Brotherhood - 4-Koma Theater are both similar as:

1) They are both drawn in a Chibi style
2) They both have short sketches (However Sword Art Offline flows together better, this is as it is set as a news report. Wheras 4-Koma Theater is a collection of different (and hilarious) shorts)
3) In both, each episode spans around 2 minuites

However, only watch either of these series if you have watched the main anime first, this is as they sometimes contain links to the plot of the anime. Also, most of the comedy in 4-Koma theater you will  read more 
reportRecommended by Maxew555
Both are comedic counterpart series to their respective parent series and have short episodes (approx. 5 mins) consisting of non-stop gags based on a "toon"/"chibi" style of animation. Note that the Brotherhood series is a collection of parodies of significant events pulled from the main story while the Suzumiya series is a compilation of short side stories set apart from the main story. 
reportRecommended by Rowver
They are both funny parodies of the original shows altough Kuragehime was already a comedy.
