Surreal: Surreal defines something that is on the brink of being unexplainable. Something Surreal, or Surrealism, is what makes things in life different. It makes things stand out. It makes you think, “Is that possible?” Something surreal cannot be, or can almost not be, described.

By definition, a synonym for weird. Often used by critics to describe situations in comedy in which the character does something out of the ordinary or unexpected. This form of comedy is intended to catch you off guard, and is usually used sparingly to increase it's impact. Few comedy shows or movies revolve around utterly surreal comedy to the point where a serious or dramatic moment is, in turn, surreal, in the show, or reverse surreal. Shows such as Spongebob Squarepants, Bobobo-bo-bo-bobo, Space Ghost, and Xavier Renegade Angel are examples of shows that often use Surreal comedy.

In short, the word Surreal is mainly used to describe a bizarre situation, event, or action in comedy or real life intended to throw the audience off guard, rarely having a punchline, other than the fact that it so bizarrely happens.
I just watched a cartoon where a dog just randomly talked in a low voice. It was so random, I had to call it Surreal.
