The first episode from the Funko-themed animated shorts from Marvel has been released. Spellbound is a 90-second short, the first of three planned by Marvel and Funko. The shorts were written and animated by A Large Evil Corporation.

Take a look:

"Telling Marvel stories in the Funko Pop! aesthetic is a special kind of magic unlike anything we've ever done," said Cort Lane, Marvel's Senior VP of Animation & Family Entertainment. "These shorts are both hilarious and action-packed - and irresistibly adorable too. Really, I think all audiences will love them."

The second short, Bait N Switch, is scheduled to debut December 7 and feature Rocket Raccoon seeking to rescue Groot, who is imprisoned on the Collector's museum.

The third short, Chimichangas, is scheduled for the week after on December 14, with Deadpool fighting Venom.

"We are beyond excited to bring our Pop! Vinyl to life by collaborating with Marvel," said Mark Robben, Funko's Director of Marketing. "We hope fans enjoy these short films as much as they do collecting Pop!, and hopefully we'll be able to create many more."
