When I saw DD, I instantly thought of Hetalia in both anime and manga form.  Both are in a five minute format that showcases the interactions between a big variety of characters, with an emphasis on cuteness and lightheartedness.  They're also personifications - in Hetalia's case, the personifications are countries, and in DD we're watching some very unique animals.  Both animes have to deal with the foibles of 'useless' characters that don't behave as expected, with a lot of laughter in the process.

Both of these series revolve around anthropomorphic gag characters interacting in hilarious ways, and both have a similar short format.  Hetalia may be more "educated" than Useless Animals, but they share a similar sense of fun.

Di Gi Charat

Di Gi Charat

One day, Dejiko, Puchiko and the strange ball-shaped Gema-Gema crash land their UFO in the middle of Akihabara. Without a single yen to their name they have nowhere to go, but following an unexpected and generous offer from the manager of a nearby store, the trio begin working at the shop in exchange for renting the room upstairs. Alongside Dejiko’s self-confessed rival Rabi-en-Rose, as well as a mysterious bear that has mastered the ability to appear happy, sad, depressed and angry all at once, the insanity is only just beginning! From shooting window shoppers with Dejiko’s Laser Eye Beam and the appearance of a bizarre farting impostor, to a sudden attack on the city by Godzilla, life at Gamers is certainly livening up.

In both of these, the episodes are so short, that not much happens. But what does happen is quite funny. Also, all of the characters in each have an animal theme.

Both short and sweet, each episode is a self contained story that doesn't really add much to the bigger picture. Sweet Valerian and Useless Animals both leave you with a sense of wonderment at what you've just watched, and why you're reaching for the remote to put on the next episode.

With not a whole lot in common storywise, or character-wise, I make this recommendation purely because they are both a good way to spend a few minutes of time and will leave you with a (bemused) smile on your face.

Both of these series are about a community of different animals with a twist. Dogtato-kun features 'vegetable animals' and Damekko Doubutsu is about a group of animals that are utterly useless. While dogato-kun is more child-like than Damekko Doubutsu, if you liked the twist of one series and looking at how these creatures interact with each other in their daily lives then you are likely to enjoy the other.

As strange as it may seem, I feel that these two series have a reasonable amount in common. Both feature cute little creatures as the main protagonists and have a lot of comedy in them. Also, while the title suggests that the animals in Damekko Doubutsu are useless in their own ways, the aliens in Keroro Gunsou are also pretty useless in their own pursuits. If you enjoyed the comedic failings of the protagonists in one of these series and want some easy-watching and lighthearted entertainment, then it would be worth trying the other.
