Azumanga Tunes (known in Japan as Azumanga Shorts) is a anime compilation series featuring Azumanga Daioh anime shorts. It's a spin-off to Anime All Star.

Summary

Each episode consists of three (or two) 6-11 min. theatrical Azumanga Daioh shorts featuring characters from the 2002 anime series of the same name, and from the spin-offs (Sakaki & Kaorin, Azumanga Preschool, and Takeru & Hikari), as well as shorts featuring Sonic the Hedgehog characters and Blast-Off Buzzard from the Hanna-Barbera cartoon shows CB Bears and Tom & Jerry Kids. It would also include "Musical Melodies" which focuses on assorted and one shot characters.

The show features music videos called "ADMV" (Azumanga Daioh Music Video) shown in between the second and/or third shorts in certain episodes. On US airings, random clips from the shorts called "AD Clip" (similar to Hip Clip! from "Merrie Melodies: Starring Bugs Bunny & Friends" and the Musical Miniatures from the 1987 "Woody Woodpecker Show") are shown in place of the ADMV music videos only on The CW, Disney Channel, Toon Disney, and Disney Cinemagic airings of the show.

22 min. ONA specials were later made for stream.

Some of the shorts would later be shown in The Pani Poni Dash Show! And on the Saturday morning block and 24-hour channel Sentai For Kids.

Many of the shorts revolve on either slapstick and comedy, or on story and character depending on the shorts.
