Yesterday The Savvy Screener wrote about the growth of children’s animated programming on Netflix.

Today we look at Love, Death & Robots, billed as Netflix’s “first-ever animated adult anthology series.”

Presented by Deadpool director Tim Miller and Mindhunter director David Fincher, the series consists of 18 episodes – each eight to 17 minutes in length – covering a wide range of grown-up topics and animation styles.

The stories, spanning horror, fantasy and comedy, include:

“Three Robots” – Three robots tour a post-apocalyptic city.

“Sucker of Souls” – Mercenaries use cats to fight a demon.

“When the Yogurt Took Over” – Scientists inadvertently breed super-intelligent yogurt that wants to take over the world.

“Ice Age” – A young couple finds an ancient civilization living in their freezer. That ‘70s Show’s Topher Grace stars.

“Alternate Histories” – Hitler dies over and over “in a variety of comically fantastic ways.”
