It’s Great to Be Batman — Especially When You’re LEGO Batman

Life's a party. Rock your body.

By my count it's been nearly three years since Jenny Slate's Marcel last shared his teeny-tiny worldview with the good people of the Internet, but the shell has learned a lot during his hiatus. Did you know shrimp are the idiots of the sea? Or that some guys can eat an entire grape?
