Both are comedic series produced during the same time periods. Personally, I would say that Urusei Yatsura is funnier, but Osomatsu-kun does not rely as heavily on Japanese references as Urusei Yatsura does; this makes it more accessible to a wider audience.

Osomatsu-kun is based on the original manga series of sextuplet boys by Fujio Akatsuka.Osomatsu-san is a parody with the sextuplets as adults and more adult-situated.
