I'm looking for an old cartoon that I watched back in like the early 90s. Not sure when it was made, but it was a short for sure.

It was about an alien robot insect/spider? that crash lands somewhere in an urban environment. There was a superhero that was killed by it, an a kid ended up climbing up on it, opening the hatch and saw a cockroach/insect of some sort operating it.

The kid just smashes it with his fist.

I know there were more animated shorts that followed it.

Sounds like the "Grinning Evil Death" short (Bob Sabiston, 1990) that I first saw on Season 1, Episode 1 of MTV's Liquid Television.
