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?


In the episode "Cat Fingers," the Gems claim to be going to sea to fight a Living Island. This is possibly a reference to the series Adventure Time, in which the Ice King washes up on an island that is alive. 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 »

Crazy Credits

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 »

User Reviews

On track to be one of the greatest, and most underrated, cartoon series of all time.
19 June 2015 | by caregiverpdmSee all my reviews

It's impossible for me to give this show all of the praise it deserves in writing. Steven Universe has made one of the most real, thought provoking, progressive, and honest cartoon environments I've ever seen. The life lessons taught by characters are meaningful and honest, always trying to encourage learning by trying rather than not taking risks. Steven as a main character still blows me away in his accuracy in portraying a young child's innocence and immaturity, while still making him a good role model and someone who you believe could be real. In fact, despite a sci fi context, all of the show's characters are so meticulously developed and realistic that it can almost feel at times like they're truly real individuals, with real issues that you not only recognize, but feel as if you want to help them with, and that you yourself care about. That in itself is very difficult for a show to pull off, especially an animated show, and ESPECIALLY a show oriented at kids! I literally have no idea how Rebecca Sugar can make so many things possible at once, from songs to life lessons to representations of different sexual orientations, everything is there and it all works just beautifully. Steven Universe deserves much more attention than it has currently, because it is truly on track to be a series in the ranks with greats like Avatar: The Last Airbender.

10/10, my highest marks to this show. Bravo.
