Last week we saw a short for Marvel’s upcoming animated series Guardians of the Galaxy [watch it here], and now its the turn of everyone’s favorite anthropomorphic tree Groot! Check out the Groot Origins short here…
We also have the following series of shorts to look forward to throughout August…
– August 15: Rocket Raccoon – Part 1 (8:58 p.m., ET/PT) & Part 2 (9:58 p.m., ET/PT)

The series follows the newly-formed team who finds a strange artifact keyed only to the DNA of Peter Quill. Upon opening it, Quill unleashes a treasure map leading to a powerful weapon known as the Cosmic Seed which is capable of giving birth to the next universe. It’s up to the Guardians to find, protect and ultimately destroy the Cosmic Seed in order to keep it out of the hands of those who would abuse its power, from galactic big boss Thanos, to the conniving brothers the Collector and the Grandmaster, to a resurrected Ronan, to the ultimate trickster, Loki, in order to save the universe.
Guardians of the Galaxy will premiere on Disney XD on September 26th, with a sneak peek of the first episode airing on September 5th.
