Rocket Raccoon

His name and aspects of his character are a nod to The Beatles’ 1968 song “Rocky Raccoon “. Rocket Raccoon appeared as a prominent member in the 2008 relaunch of the superhero team Guardians of the Galaxy.

Ok then.

Here’s Rocket’s first appearance in a Marvel comic, Marvel Preview #7, in the summer of 1976:

His next appearance was in The Incredible Hulk #271 in May 1982 (something vaguely similar about that issue title methinks):

He’d only appeared in 10 Marvel comics before Guardians, and often had a sidekick:

Always a favourite of mine. Never knew Paul would mention me and my relationships with rocky and dan in a song. 

I’m actually writing a song called “Lil Magill”. It’s basically Rocky Raccoon from Magill’s perspective. We find dan goes to jail, and Magill dates dear rocky again. 

Can’t believe George Martin thinks it’s fillergeorge-martin

Elmore James' got nothing on this baby!

This is a great one for kids, I could easily imagine this on Ed ‘Stewpot’ Stewart’s Junior Choice. Used to love singing along. In fact that’s a themed album Apple have missed a trick with after Rock n Roll, Love Songs, and Ballads – Beatles for Kids. For starters, and in no particular order:

Rocky Raccoon

Octopus’ Garden

Yellow Submarine

Maxwell’s Silver Hammer

Goodnight

When I’m Sixty-Four

Drive My Car

Nowhere Man

Everybody’s Got Something to Hide, Except for Me and My Monkey

She Loves You

I Wanna Hold Your Hand

 

Any more suggestions for a CD’s worth?

Ob-La-Di, Ob-La-Da

The kids in school in the movie Yesterday seem to be enjoying the song.
