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).
Believe in Steven.
Did You Know?
In "Historic Friction," the character Jamie takes on the acting roles of Garnet, Amethyst and Pearl, all at once during a stage play. This has since ascended to memetic level as fans have inserted multiple Jamies into poorly-assembled costumes of other characters. 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
The Cartoon Network Studios logo shown at the very end shows an animatic with The Crystal Gems throwing and catching Steven and then he is thrown in the air. See more
