13 Baby Groot GIFs That Communicate Better Than Words In Preparation For 'Guardians'

There's no question who the breakout character was in Marvel's Guardians of the Galaxy. Baby Groot stole the show, and he was only in the movie for about two minutes — two glorious minutes. Thankfully, fans will be getting a whole lot more of Baby Groot in Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2, which takes place only a few months after the events of the first film, meaning Groot might just be in Baby Groot form for a full two hours. What could be better? Well, how about 13 Baby Groot GIFs to get you ready for Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2?

Baby Groot is beloved, and it's not just because he's cute, or because he dances. No, what makes Baby Groot so great is that he's totally free. In Guardians of the Galaxy, adult-sized Groot was a bit more reserved emotionally, but based on trailers for Vol. 2, Baby Groot wears his emotions on his sleeves — his tiny, Baby Groot sleeves. As a result, we've been #blessed with a ton of expressive Baby Groot GIFS, and I can think of no better way to celebrate this new Baby Groot reality than to tell you exactly how you can use these 13 best Baby Groot GIFS in your everyday life.

In this modern day and age, texting is king. And when you're too lazy to type out actual words, emojis are there to pick up the slack. But, in my humble opinion, nothing delivers emotions and messages quite like a good GIF. And these 13 Baby Groot GIFs, like Groot himself, say so much, and yet so little.
