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

Let's get this out of the way, One Piece is popular, One Piece is so popular in fact that it's an absurd turnout how there are no official Animated spin-offs, and the irony resides of the potential One Piece has to excel at making a parody out of itself, it just works so well with it, in art style, humor, and even the lore. Why hasn't it happened yet?

“One Piece: Straw Hat Theater” might have been the first attempt at pushing into the parody direction, cute short shorts that crack up inside jokes and mock-up the lows and highs of the main cast. Unfortunately, Franky read more
