Fans of Marvel’s recent smash-hit summer blockbuster “Guardians of the Galaxy” will be familiar with the “baby Groot” scene that unfolds during the film in which a tiny Groot plant dances to The Jackson 5 as Dave Bautista’s Drax character sits nearby cleaning his weaponry. An amusing and cute scene that fits in seamlessly with the whole tone of the Guardians film, this has become one of the standout scenes in the entire movie.
Without spoiling the why’s, the what’s and the where’s, this is still a remarkable scene from one of the most enjoyable slices of action cinema this year, and solidifies Groot as one of the coolest characters of 2014, especially when one considers that he hardly says more than three words during the film.
I. AM. GROOT.
