The Lady and the Reaper (Spanish: La dama y la Muerte) is a 2009 Spanish 3D imaging animated short film created by Javier Recio García and produced by Kandor Graphics and Green Moon.

An old lady, who lives alone in the countryside, is looking forward to death so that she can meet her dead husband. When the Reaper arrives and she is about to reach the afterlife, she is pulled away from the Reaper by a smug doctor. The Reaper and the doctor fight fiercely, and eventually medicine wins. The impatient Reaper leaves, but the lady is not willing to postpone the encounter with her husband, electrocuting herself with the defibrillator in water, much to the dismay and anger of the Reaper.
