A series of Russian puppet stop-motion shorts created between 1976 and 1991. The series as a whole doesn't really have a name, so everyone calls them by the name of the first and most popular episode: 38 Parrots.

YouTube has four of ten shorts online with subtitles:

Each short has a problem that main characters (a thoughtful python, hyperactive monkey, nerdy elephant, and eccentric parrot) try to solve using off-kilter logic and wordplay.

Tropes used in 38 Parrots include:

 Monkey: I don't know how to ponder the same thing twice.
