My sense of humor is pretty dark, but I do enjoy a good slapstick. I would honestly prefer something with no ecchi at all, but I do have a soft spot for ecchi-moment-fails that end in comedic violence & regret.

I would appreciate it if you would include moving gifs or clips of the show in your recommendations.

Stuff I've already seen.
------------------------------------
Cute High Earth Defense Club Love.
Excel Saga. (Except the last episode).
Jungle wa Itsumo Hale Nochi Goo (aka Hare + Guu).
Photon: The Idiot Adventures.
Special Duty Combat Unit Shinesman.
The original DiGi Charat 5min shorts
Bokusatsu Tenshi Dokuro-chan.
Project A-Ko.
Orphan Revenge.
Baka to Test.
Goldfish Warning.
Gokusen.
SLAYERS.
Chol Gals (Super Gals).
Juubei-Chan: Secret of the Lovely Eyepatch.
Ranma 1/2.
Magic Knight Rayearth.
Nekojiru Gekijou.
Oruchuban Ebichu (This one is actually kind of a hentai, but it's pure cringe & not at all titillating).
Excel Saga.
Saiyuki Reload (The prequel was not a comedy).
Boku Patalliro.
Patalliro Saiyuki.
Master of Mosquiton 99.
Rupan the 3ed (Lupin III).
Castle of Cagliostro.
Danshi Koukousei no Nichijou (Daily Lives of Highschool Boys).
Kill la Kill.
Crayon Shin-Chan.
Gokudo-Kun Manyuuki (Gokudo: Swordsman Extraordinaire).
Original Dirty Pair TV series.
Kodomo no Omocha (Kodocha).
Irresponsible Captain Tylor.
Maho Tsukai Tai (Magic Users Club).
Bakuretsu Hunter (Sorcerer Hunters).
Yamato Nadeshiko Shichihenge (The Wallflower).
Dead Leaves.
Apocalypse Zero (I've been told I'm kinda messed up for considering this & Mad Bull 34 to be funny).
Happy Lesson.
Full Metal Panic Fumoffu.
Magical Play.
Nurse Witch Komugi-Chan.
Magical Shopping Arcade Abenobashi.
Colorful.
Oh! Super Milk-Chan.
School Rumble.
Gintama.
Great Teacher Onizuka.
Azumanga Daioh.
Sukigake! Cramortie High.
Golden Boy (But I hated the episode with the biker chick).


Comedies I did not like:
------------------------------
Suzumiya Haruhi no Yuutsu (Can't stand the main character; she's a total Mary Sue).
Lucky*Star (I don;t really do well with Slice Of Life shows).
Fairy Tale (Too ecchi).
Naruto (too much romantic angst, annoying main character).
One Piece (I can't stand the art style. I just can't look past it).
Kore wa Zombie Desu Ka (It was okay, but there is BARELY any comedy in this at all & people keep listing it as one).
Puni-Puni Poemi. (Too ecchi).
Eikan (Too ecchi).
Sayonara Zetsubou Sensei (Seemed ideal, but in the end, it was too fast-paced. Perhaps I'll try again with a dub).
Toriko (Can't stand the art style. I really tried to ignore it, but I can't).
Furi-Kuri (Fooly Cooly) (The last episode ruined the show for me forever).
Panyo-Panyo DiGi Charat. (Too saccharine, cutesy, & sappy. The polar opposite of the original series).
Juubei-Chan Season 2 (Took everything good about season 1 & threw it out the window, barely a comedy at all).
Kodomo no Omocha Season 2. (Fell apart in the 2ed half, dropped the humor entirely).
BokusatsuTenshi Dokuro-Chan (Took everything good about season 1 & threw it out the window, too ecchi).

- Amagi Brilliant Park: Same author as Full Metal Panic, and has a lot in common with Fumoffu!
- Ben-To: Silly/surreal comedic violence: Supermarket KOs over half-priced bentos.
- The Devil is a Part-Timer: Demon Lord gets stuck in our reality, takes a job at McDonald's.
- Ookami-San and Her Seven Companions: Most of the humor here is of the "snide-remark" variety, but some of it is hilarious. Bit of romance, but the focus of the show is making fun of classic fairytales.

This Art Club Has a Problem! - There is a romantic comedy subplot with the two MCs but the rest of the show is pure comedy gold.

One Punch Man - Most people rave about the action but the show only works because its a comedy.
on Viz / Hulu / Daisuki

Panty & Stocking with Garterbelt - Basicly an R rated comedy done in a Cartoon Network style. The comedy was so hard to translate, Funimation got permission to to bring in Evan Dorkin (of Milk and Cheese: Dairy Products Gone Bad fame) to rewrite the script for the dub.

Osomatsu-san ! Still pretty new (last year) and I'm really enjoying it. It's got lots of dumb gags and a super distinctive charm. It's easily one of my faves.

Also, seconding Panty & Stocking with Garterbelt because that's been my ultimate fave for a long time. Also has a distinctive charm in the animation (which is a huge plus for me, not sure if you're the same) and really ballin music.

Both of these are adult humor, and under 30 episodes

My Neighbors the Yamadas was pretty funny and heartfelt. It's only a movie, too.
