On Wednesday, Aug. 10, "I Am Groot" arrived on Disney+ as part of Marvel's Phase 4. The animated short series focuses on the tree-like character named Groot (who's voiced by none other than "Fast & Furious" star Vin Diesel) from the Guardians of the Galaxy movies. He's known for his signature "I am Groot" catchphrase, his hilarious friendship with Rocket, and his adorable, baby-like mannerisms, which are on full display in the new series.

Groot goes on various adventures throughout the show's five episodes, like taking his first steps as a toddler and engaging in a fight with a blue rock species to having a dance battle with a shape-shifting alien. Fans who pay close attention to the series will notice there are a number of Easter eggs carefully hidden in each episode, which Marvel is notorious for doing with every project. For example, in "I Am Groot," there are references to Groot's Guardian teammates like Star-Lord (Chris Pratt), Gamora (Zoe Saldana), Rocket (Bradley Cooper), and Drax (Dave Bautista).

So whether you've already watched the show or are planning to do so soon, scroll through the slideshow to see some of the biggest "I Am Groot" Easter eggs.
