Grab a bowl of your favorite sugary cereal, plop yourself in front of a computer screen, and watch the first Infinity War trailer transformed into a Saturday morning cartoon. Using clips from animated Marvel series of the 1990s, YouTube's Darth Blender pop culture channel re-creates the viral trailer nearly shot-for-shot. It's enough to make any '90s kid (at heart) waste an entire Saturday morning watching this video on repeat.

The cartoons used are: Silver Surfer Animated Series (February-May, 1998), Spider-Man The Animated Series (1994-1998), The Avengers - United They Stand (1999-2000), Fantastic Four TV Series (1994), Iron Man (1994-1996), and The Incredible Hulk (1996-1997). While most of these programs didn't last long, they offer up some great moments of the Infinity War heroes in their classic garb, making for an incredible retro twist on the highly-anticipated blockbuster. Even the lip synching is pretty on point in most places. 

Sadly, the fan trailer doesn't include the final moment of Thor meeting the Guardians of the Galaxy. That's because the team didn't really appear in animation until very recently thanks to the success of James Gunn's first movie, which turned the once obscure group into a household name. And besides, the Guardians, as we know them today, didn't appear in Marvel Comics until 2008 from Dan Abnett and Andy Lanning.
