''Steven Universe'' is a Creator/CartoonNetwork show from Creator/RebeccaSugar, an ''WesternAnimation/AdventureTime'' alum who also created ''ComicBook/PugDavis''. It is also the first Cartoon Network original created by a team headed solely by a woman.

The show follows the ComingOfAge adventures of a boy named Steven, the youngest of a team of magical guardians of humanity: the Crystal Gems. Steven may not be as powerful as the other Crystal Gems. Or as savvy. And he doesn't have much control over his powers, which originate from the gem in his bellybutton inherited from his late mother Rose Quartz, the Gems' original leader. But that doesn't stop him from joining Garnet, Amethyst and Pearl on their magical adventures and finding a way to save the day. And as Steven slowly starts to find out what exactly they're saving the day from, the plot comes to encompass much more than just one sleepy beach town.

A comic book series began in August of 2014. With a short teaser story released in the ''ComicBook/AdventureTime 2013 Spooktacular''. In 2016, Kaboom! released a graphic novel: Steven Universe: Too Cool for School.

''Steven Universe'' had a ([[FakeCrossover noncanon]]) {{Crossover}} episode with ''WesternAnimation/UncleGrandpa''.

A standalone mobile game, ''[[VideoGame/AttackTheLight Steven Universe: Attack The Light]]'' was released on April 2nd, 2015 for [=iOS=] and Android. It features a self-contained story written by Rebecca Sugar and turn-based RPG gameplay along the lines of ''VideoGame/SuperMarioRPG'' and ''VideoGame/PaperMario''.

The show has an official CharacterBlog, ''Blog/KeepBeachCityWeird'', written from the perspective of supporting character Ronaldo. It updates in real time parallel to events in the show.
