I'm really surprised they are dubbing these. Most of the time they have quick 5 minute or less shows subs are not that bad and it saves money not dubbing them. On top of that I can't imagine the dub being better then the Japanese when it comes to the super deformed wackiness(as much as I love English dubs they tend to have trouble with stuff like that).
I imagine the only reason they're doing it is because Haruhi as a franchise is seen as being fairly "mainstream". Though, it's not like there isn't a history for dubbing short things like this. Mini-goddess and Welcome to Lodoss Island! both got dubs.
