Groot Begins In This New Clip From The Animated ‘Guardians Of The Galaxy’

The Guardians of the Galaxy were almost inevitably getting a cartoon after their movie was such a massive hit. The only question was whether it was going to be more Avengers: Earth’s Mightiest Heroes or Super Hero Squad. Thankfully, these clips explaining Groot’s origin are the latter.

Marvel is recounting the origins of each member of the team to promote the series: Star-Lord’s is also currently up. As for the series itself, you’ll be able to check it out September 26.
