Okay, more post-apocalyptic cartoon fun….

Set in August 4, 2026 in the city of Allendale, California, There Will Come Soft Rains details the daily tasks of a robotic house after its inhabitants (Mr and Mrs McClellan and their son and daughter) have died in a nuclear war. The house is still undamaged, fully automated and sensitive to its owners and their requests and needs. It continues to serve the dead family, unaware of their absence, though aware of other external and internal disruptions such as the weather and birds attempting to land on it. Throughout the story, the house makes breakfast, disposes of it uneaten, and performs various domestic tasks. The house communicates via a set of recorded and synthesized voices, starting a morning wakeup call at 7:00 AM and at 7:15 it announces the date 3 times in the kitchen.
