If you saw Guardians of the Galaxy and were wondering about what life was like for Peter Quill on Yondu’s ship — well, here’s your answer.

This is from Marvel’s Guardians of the Galaxy: Origins (shudder... Marvel should maybe not name its prequels “Origins” for a bit. It brings back Wolverine memories), which is a series of short animated prequels to the Guardians of the Galaxy cartoon. This is the second Peter Quill episode — the first one’s on iTunes if want to go buy it.


It’s pretty much exactly what we heard in the movie, down to Yondu threatening to eat Quill. So ... perfect cartoon for kids? I guess?
