Well, that was fast. Clearly knowing what a potential megahit they have on their hands, Marvel has announced a Guardians of the Galaxy cartoon series that will air on Disney XD, joining Avengers Assemble, Ultimate Spider-Man, and the channel's other Marvel animated series.
There's no date for the show, but Creative Director Eric Radomski said the Guardians would be making appearances in all the other Marvel cartoons to keep them on kids' minds. Not bad for a superhero group that only barely existed in 2008. Meanwhile, I'm digging the character designs, especially tiny Groot... except for Rocket. I appreciate the difficulty in making an anthropomorphic raccoon look imposing, but at a certain point he stops looking "badass" and just begins looking "rabid."
