In this cute mash-up Groot is the giving tree and Rocket is the little boy in the childrens classic "The Giving Tree". I wanted to make something fun and something that represented Groot as being the kindest gentle creature he was in the movie. So I thought of nothing less then one of my favorite children's books. Enjoy.

I've always loved Vin Diesel's animated roles. The iconic scene from Iron Giant in which Hogarth attempts to teach the Giant simple words like "tree" and "rock" is one of my favorites. It only seemed natural that the Giant and Groot might get into some interesting, albeit limited, elocution lessons.
