Fans have already gotten a glimpse of Baby Groot and Rocket Raccoon in the "Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2" trailer but now they can catch the BFFs in a new animated short from Marvel and Funko.

In the video "Marvel Funko Presents: Bait N Switch" posted Wednesday on YouTube, Rocket breaks into the Collector's museum in order to find his buddy and help him escape.

The animated characters are recreated in their Funko toy design with giant heads and tiny bodies.

This is the second video Funko has made featuring Marvel characters. In "Spellbound," Spider-Man and Iron Man team up to battle Loki.

"Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2" arrives in theaters May 5.
