This series is set in the fictional Beach City, where ageless alien warriors, the Crystal Gems, live in an ancient beachside temple, protecting the world from evil. They project female humanoid forms from magical gemstones that are the core of their being. The Crystal Gems are Garnet, Amethyst, Pearl and Steven, a young half-human, half-Gem boy who inherited his gemstone from his mother, the Gems' former leader Rose Quartz. As Steven tries to figure out his powers, he spends his days with his human father Greg, his friend Connie, other people in Beach City, or the other Gems, whether to help them save the world or just to hang out. He explores the abilities passed down to him by his mother, which include fusion (the ability of Gems to merge their identities and bodies to form a new and more powerful personality).

Did You Know?


Actress Sophia Lillis( IT, Gretel & Hansel, Sharp Objects) is a big fan of the series. See more »


The screen door in front of the Crystal Gems' house sometimes opens in and sometimes out. This could be incorrectly regarded as a goof since the Gems don't understand Earth technology. Maybe they installed the door that way. See more »

Welcome to Steven Universe...
8 February 2014 | by ilapierreSee all my reviews

Available online or Mondays at 8/7c on cartoon network, Steven Universe is a new cartoon I had been meaning to check out for a while. Created by Adventure Time writer, story boarder, and composer Rebecca Sugar (you can see her work in the episode "Simon and Marcy"); "Universe" is a fun loving blend of smooth bright animation, comedy, and fantastic yet still growing lore (plus a witty and respectful pinch of life lessons and seriousness). Only ten episodes into the series, I can give it a solid 8 out of ten stars, and if it can continue this notable streak of entertaining episodes, I foresee lots of Adventure Time or Bee and Puppy Cat-esk fandom emerging.

The last of the recent episodes I watched turned a tad monotonous/tiresome, played ,impart, by Steven himself; who can be a little too loud and brash. Yet if a Teen Titans/ Adventure Time beach vibe cartoon is your sort of jam, then I would be very surprised if the first, two-part episodes (or hell, even the catchy theme song) didn't at least leave you interested for more. I really hope this show continues to stay fresh and creative, and that it can meet the praise I am giving it. Children will ,of course, go bananas over SU, but for teens and adults like me (who still watch cartoons), I hope it can be another solid and standout hit. But from were I'm standing now, "Steven Universe" is a rare kind of gem, just like the one in Steven's belly button...
