Are there any terms to call animations like “Shop pop opera” or “Don’t hug me, I’m scared”?

There are the films which mix various animations such as clay animation, stop motion, live action, puppetry, computer animation and so on.
usually their genre is creepy or surreal. I always wondered whether there is a terminology or name for the type of the animation as a man who reveled in the shows. Anyone know about it??

Do you have any examples?
Animated filmmaking techniques have their respective terms like "clay animation", "stop motion", "traditional animation". But I wonder there is a word for the animations such as "Don't hug me, i'm scared", "shop pop opera" of adult swim or music videos of Gorillaz

I don't know. but doing research on it and found some interesting things. The Don't hug me i'm scared series was quite popular. I could not find a name for the genre. Maybe we just call it a fusion. Are you an animator?

I wish I was an animator. I am preparing to get in animation school. Anyway thanks for your answers. Well, fusion could be a proper name for them.
