By Jamie Condliffe on at

Imagine if you could assemble the brains of famous scientists like Einstein, Darwin and Tesla into a band of time-travelling superheroes led by Winston Churchill. Well, now you don’t have to imagine, because the animated series Super Science Friends depicts exactly that.

The first in a series of the Kickstarter-funded science adventure series has just been published on Vimeo for you to watch for free. It’s masterminded by Brett Jubinville, and animated by the folks at Tinman Creative Studios. If the idea of Marie Curie and Sigmund Freud battling Nazis, zombies and anti-science villains (and frankly who doesn’t?) then take a look. [Vimeo]
