I'd have to admit, that as much as they are kid movies, I love love love the Despicable Me movies and the accompanying minions shorts. Like most of the best kid movies, these also have jokes that speak to teens and grownups, going right over the heads of their younger "intended" audience, and they are hilarious.

But the real stars of those movies aren't necessarily the "me" (Gru) of the title. The characters people have fallen in love with are really the minions. So cute! So funny! Check out this short film in which the fruit-loving little guys go ballistic over a banana:


And now, they are getting their own movie, a prequel of sort, pre-Gru. The trailer came out the other day and now I am starting the countdown...

 Can. Not. Wait.
