To wrap up its animation panel at Comic-Con International in San Diego, Marvel premiered early footage of a "Guardians of the Galaxy" cartoon. In the clip, Rocket Raccoon, appearing first in silhouette, fights off multiple flying robotic enemies before Starlord shows up, telling him, "If you're going to hang out with me, you're going to need bigger blasters."

The short clip followed comments by SVP-Production and Creative Director Eric Radomski that the Guardians would appear in episodes of all current Marvel animated series, including "Ultimate Spider-Man," "Hulk and the Agents of S.M.A.S.H.," and "Avengers Assemble."

"With the upcoming movie, we're trying to get them into the minds of everybody who might not know about the Guardians." Cort Lane, Vice President of Development & Productionm added that a Season 3 episode of "Spider-Man" will actually air early to get the Guardians out there.
