Love, Death, And Robots: ‘Three Robots’ Analysis

by Tito W. James

Three Robots opens in a stereotypical post-apocalyptic city complete with a Terminator homage in the form of a robotic foot crushing a human skull. The hook of the short is revealed when the Terminator- styled robot is joined by a cute Wall-E type bot and a clunky droid reminiscent of TARS from Interstellar.

The animators make the most out of each robot’s personality as they take a tour through the ruins of human civilization. While the tone is uproariously funny, there is a layer of satire when it comes to exploring humanity’s creation myth and their ultimate self-destruction.

Three Robots is a fun change of pace from Love, Death, and Robots’ more serious episodes.
