The comedy could best be described as adolescent. There's a bit of ToiletHumour, a lot of {{Slapstick}} (Kirenenko goes [[BerserkButton berserk]] quite often), and some surreal BlackComedy moments. Its lack of dialogue also makes it very accessible for a casual observer.

rabbit]]. The sixths season is a prequel ("Season Zero") about prison life when Kirenenko was still recovering from his wounds and before they became cellmates.



* ArtShift: Season Zero starts (mostly) DeliberatelyMonochrome and gradually gains colours as the setting acquires familiar elements. Also background music is creepy.
* BandageMummy: Kirenenko and his brother in the prequel.



* CallForward: Kedamsky is a background inmate in the prequel and [[ADayInTheLimelight a whole episode]] focuses on Killnenko.
* CameBackWrong: In the flashback in Season 3 Kirenenko and Killnenko were torn to pieces by an explosion. They've been put together, but some parts got mixed. A chunk of Kirenenko's skull has wrong colour and breaks off easier.



* TheDitz[=/=]GeniusDitz: Putin. From Season 2 onwards, he is shown to be quite proficient with mechanics, which has saved their lives on more than one occasion. He can also cook.

Usavich (from ''Usagi'', Japanese for rabbit, and ''-vich'', which is faux Russian) is a short CG-animated comedy that airs on MTV Japan. Briefly, Usavich is about two [[FunnyAnimal anthropomorphic rabbit]] fugitives. The first is Putin, a carefree and happy-go-lucky rabbit who always follows orders, dances a lot, is very skilled with repairing things, and panics quite often. The second is Kirenenko, an apathetic and ultra-strong rabbit who cares only about reading his shoe catalog or cleaning his shoes, and is oblivious to the fact that he lives in jail.

** Kirenenko gets into an underground-boxing match in Episode 34. After both Kirenenko and his opponent get injected with some super-steroid, the crowd goes running and Putin jumps for cover. When he looks up, the opponent is embedded in the ring, but Kirenenko is sitting on a stool, a light shining down on him, in black and white, ala TomorrowsJoe
