Parents Need to Know
Parents need to know that I Am Groot is a series of animated shorts featuring Baby Groot from Guardians of the Galaxy. Baby Groot (voiced by Vin Diesel) usually ends up in some sort of trouble due to his toddler-like desire to explore and do things his way, providing funny and relatable situations for kids. But there are some suspenseful and mildly violent scenes -- explosions, characters getting squished, etc. -- that might be scary for the youngest viewers. Marvel fans will enjoy a quick cameo from Rocket (Bradley Cooper).
Is It Any Good?
Marvel offers fans impressive computer animation and lots of laughs as they wait for the next installment of Guardians of the Galaxy. Fans of Marvel Universe will get a kick out of I Am Groot, which serves up irony, suspense, and humor -- all in 3- minute episodes. The show is visually pleasing to watch, thanks to Kirsten Lepore's realistic yet quirky animation style. Some scenes may be scary for the youngest viewers, but because the episodes are short bursts of action, the series is a cool way to introduce young fans to Marvel, Guardians of the Galaxy, and science fiction as a genre.
