Heybot is probably the weirdest anime you can find and that's exactly why it's so awesome. I made a review and a video about it.

Chikyuu Bouei Kazoku

The Daichis: Earth's Defense Family

Chikyuu Bouei Kazoku

An anime filled to the brim with absurdity. I wrote a review about this if you're interested.
Popee the Performer
TV, 2000, 39 eps Me:- Author:10
2000s cgi mixed with crude humour makes for a surreal and bizarre experience. Popee is definitely a must watch if you like weird things. I wrote a review about this one if you're interested.

wacky goofy gag anime. has episodes made by Junichi Satou and Ikuhara. yes, this is one of the first anime they worked on together, and you can see how some of this influences the pacing and humour in Sailor Moon. there are even direct references to Kingyo Chuuihou in Sailor moon. Must watch for shoujo fans
