[[caption-width-right:202:Kirenenko and Putin.]]

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.

The first season focuses on prison life. The second season follows their adventures after escaping prison in a run-down car on a precarious mountain road. The third season deals with their stay at a high-rise skyscraper in the city. The fourth season observes Putin's attempts to perfect a robot duplicate of Kirenenko. In the fifth season they are trying to live in a forest while fending off attacks of a [[BigfootSasquatchAndYeti savage rabbit]].

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.

* CantHoldHisLiquor: One sip from anything is enough to make Putin drunk.
* DisproportionateRetribution: The reason why Putin was in jail in the first place is because he was late for a job due to a hangover. And the judges conclude that he was jailed as a capitalist agent (This show takes place in somewhere similar to Russia.
* DoAnythingRobot: The premise of Season 4. Putin gives Mechanenko several different upgrades to do just about anything. Except he's not very good at it or [[UnwantedAssistance he's intrusive to the others about helping]].
* EarsAsHair: Putin has his ears tied in a top-knot.
* EmbarrassingOldPhoto: Zrzolov has one [[spoiler:hidden inside the safe]]. Kirenenko doesn't react to it well.

** Pretty much anything directed at Kirenenko (guillotines, sniper bullets to the head, artillery shells) will just bounce off him.

** 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 ''Manga/AshitaNoJoe''
