The latest offering from the Marvel Cinematic Universe, ‘Guardians of the Galaxy, Vol. 2,’ is currently tearing it up at the box office.  Audiences are finding much to love in the film, but few things seem to be generally as crowd-pleasing as a fun holdover from the mid-credits scenes of the first film: Baby Groot.

Once the popularity of the reborn character (voiced with heavy voice modulation by Vin Diesel) became apparent, there was no way that the Marvel powers-that-be weren’t going to let the cute little fella be featured heavily in the film, obviously.  Who knows for sure how many scenes and bits didn’t make the film, but thanks to a featurette currently online that focuses on The Ravagers, those hungry for any other hit of Baby Groot that they can get their hands on are in luck, as they are given a small extra slice of a scene that did make it into the film.
