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.

The character Peridot is based off a character from creator Rebecca Sugar's fan fictions of the Nickelodeon cartoon Invader Zim. 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 opening titles of each episode as well as the end credits show part of the Crystal Gems temple above the beach that holds a washer, dryer, and some of Steven's laundry air drying on a line. The only difference is the opening titles have different color schemes (sometimes different weather and time of day) for each episode and the end credits always have a night time setting. See more
The show has cuts in some episodes in a lot of countries, like Middle East, Philippines, Latin America, Spain, Indonesia, etc. See more
