Go To
I'd really wanna be
A Jew...

A short film about a boy and his universe.
—A brief description from the first video

While not at all the first Steven Universe YouTube Poop to be made, it's definitely one of the first to become popular.

Steven Jewniverse is a YTP created by KroboProductions and uploaded on April 1, 2015.

There's... not much to say what it's about except that for most of the video's run, it is a retelling of "Giant Woman" with a few changes here and there to hilarious results thanks to the creator's (in)famous near-seamless sentence-mixing.

A sequel called Steven Jewniverse Twoniverse was uploaded on May 5, 2015, and is just as crazy as ever but with a less linear plot. Not that the first one really had a story to begin with, but it only encompassed one episode.

The third and most likely final part Steven Jewniverse 3: Threeven Jewniverse was uploaded on March 31, 2016, which somehow topped the craziness of the former installment.


Provides examples of:

  • Adults Are Useless: The Crystal Gems (Pearl and Amethyst, to be exact) and Greg, by the end of the sequel. The former due to causing Steven's inadvertent, though temporary, death and the latter due to his... eccentricities.
    • Even Garnet is also pretty useless as her only idea of defeating The Face of the Sun was to throw Amethyst towards it, killing her.
  • All Just a Dream/Or Was It a Dream?: Most of the events in the first video, possibly. The first one nearly ends with Steven falling to his death after Pearl makes an ill-advised observation that the floating stepping stones are safe enough for Steven to jump on. One of them gives way and as a result, he falls as Pearl and Amethyst look on in horror. Then cut to Steven watching the video, reacting in sheer denial about it happening.
  • And Knowing Is Half the Battle: The second one uses the "Sonic Says" intro as it transitions to Greg performing auto-fellatio while standing as Steven watches, applauding at first but becomes increasingly unsettled while he does so. Needless to say, we learned nothing.
  • Advertisement:
  • Arc Words: "I'm Steven".
  • Back from the Dead: Steven after the first one, Amethyst after the second. Both without any explanation.
  • Black Comedy: Lots of it. Special mention goes to the scene where Steven falls off a platform to his death and it gets posted on the Internet with the title "Small Fat Kid Falls to His Death".
  • Blasphemous Boast: "There is no God. And there was Steven".
  • Call-Back: Greg sucks his own dick again but with the bonus of the Crystal Gems watching him. Garnet compliments him and Pearl even tells Steven to pay attention.
  • Cluster F-Bomb: Pearl and Amethyst in the first video, especially while they argue why they don't fuck anymore.
  • Corruption of a Minor: Pearl and Amethyst's talk of sex is what lead Steven to want to see a woman's genitals.
  • Credits Gag: The first video, set to the original series' ending theme uses the credits from King of the Hill with the footage of processed cheese being grated in a machine as the background.
    • A sped-up rolling credit from Toy Story that only says "art director: ralph egg".
  • Death Glare: Pearl gives a funny one to Steven that lasts throughout the performance after Steven sings about accidentally pooping himself.
  • Death Is Cheap: In the first and second videos, Steven and Amethyst die respectively and it's Played for Laughs.
    • Steven doesn't only get killed in the third video but is also sent to hell (though that could just be a dream). And yet, it still doesn't mean much.
  • Denser and Wackier: Than the original series. Not to mention, Ruder and Cruder.
  • Deranged Animation: Very prominent in the Threeven Jewniverse video.
  • Despair Event Horizon: Steven is told by Jesus that he's going to Hell which made him not want to be a Jew anymore. So Steven became a Christian.
  • Dirty Kid: Steven in the first video sings a song about wanting to see vaginas.
  • Disappointed in You: Garnet's reaction to Steven's terrible news. See Arc Words.
  • Disproportionate Retribution: The Crystal Gems ground Steven (as in, bury him in the ground until he learned his lesson) for announcing the bad news that he's Steven.
  • Easter Egg: There's a hidden annotation at the watermelon on the table during Greg's scene in Jewniverse Twoniverse if clicked, it leads to a new tab and another video.
    • Ditto on the third video and on the very same watermelon. The video is different now, though.
  • Funny Background Event: At the carwash, a poster behind Steven as he watches Greg suck his own dick says "PEE SHIT TIME".
  • Gainax Ending: The third video.
  • Girl on Girl Is Hot: Steven is really happy with the idea of seeing Amethyst and Pearl having sex.
  • Gory Discretion Shot: In the third video when Greg runs over Connie with his van during the intro, blood splatters. Averted when he runs over Steven where we see his bloody corpse in the distance afterwards.
  • Groin Attack: Greg, still performing auto-fellatio, is suddenly shot directly in the penis by a stock image bandit.
  • Harmful to Minors: Pearl and Amethyst arguing about sex in front of Steven then Pearl nonchalantly telling Steven about it after.
  • Heel–Faith Turn: Steven is a Christian now. Subverted in that he's still an asshole.
  • Humble Goal: Parodied. All Steven wanted to do was to see a naked woman's vagina. He even sings a song about it! Though in one verse, he wanted to "get into" one.
  • Hide Your Lesbians: Seems to be the case with Amethyst and Pearl.
    Amethyst: You're no fun anymore! This is why we never fuck anymore!
  • Jesus Was Way Cool: Subverted. As soon as Steven arrives in Heaven, Jesus punches Steven out of Heaven and goes straight to Hell.
  • Les Yay: In-universe—apparently, Pearl and Amethyst used to have sex. Amethyst says they don't do it anymore because Pearl's "no fun anymore", Pearl claims it's because Amethyst is "fat and ugly"
  • Madness Mantra: In the first part, Steven has variations of "This can't be happening."
  • Mind Screw: As expected of your average YouTube Poop.
  • Never Trust a Title: Other than Steven's one line about wanting to become a Jew while wearing a yarmulke and suddenly sporting facial hair, there aren't that many Jewish elements to be found or even a Take That! to their culture. We can assume that it's just something random the creator came up with.
    • Steven being Jewish is mentioned in the third video, but he promptly converts to Christianity after he has a dream of Jesus sending him to Hell, making the title more irrelevant than ever.
  • No-Sell: Garnet throws Amethyst to the SunBaby but she vaporizes into flames before she even managed to land a hit.
  • Not Safe for Work: The audio of it. Hearing cartoon characters manipulated to curse at every turn can certainly get you fired if you play it with the speakers on.
  • Oh, Crap!: Pearl and Amethyst's reactions when Steven falls off a floating rock and starts plummeting to his doom. Unlike in the original, he's not rescued.
  • Only Sane Woman: Garnet, comparatively at least.
  • Potty Failure: The following lyric, "I accidentally shit myself."
  • Rule of Three: The Running Gag of Steven telling the bad news and saying "I'm Steven" is done three times.
    • The Steven Jewniverse saga ends with the third video.
  • Running Gag: From the third video.
    Steven: I've got bad news, everyone. I'm Steven.
  • Sadist Show: Everyone being assholes towards each other is what makes it so funny in the first place.
  • Satan: During Steven's performance in Beach-a-palooza, he makes a shout out to him along with Chris-Chan, mustard, the Stevens, and himself.
  • Screw Yourself: A mild variant. Steven kisses himself at every end of the video.
    Steven: (smooch) I kissed myself.
  • Sexy Discretion Shot: Played for Laughs. Uncle Grandpa, the Crystal Gems, and Steven have an orgy that is immediately censored with the CN logo but the sounds are heard.
  • Sound-Only Death: Steven's body can be heard crashing to the earth below while Pearl and Amethyst look stunned.
  • Spoof Aesop: After Steven chews out on Pearl for saying "I'm Steven", she cries and apologizes. Amethyst follows and Garnet says that he taught them a valuable lesson which Steven concludes in a narration that there is no God, and there was Steven.
  • The Stinger: The second part has one with Greg calling Steven an asshole then repeatedly punching him in the face.
  • This Cannot Be!: Steven's reaction to seeing himself fall to his death in a video.
  • Too Good for This Sinful Earth: Steven in the first part. Played for Laughs.
    Steven: (to himself) You were too good for this world. (kisses the still frame of Steven's face, cue Iris Out)
  • Ungrateful Bastard: Steven in the second part.
    Garnet: (after Steven saves Beach City from Sun Baby) Good job, Steven.
    Steven: Nobody likes you, bitch!
  • Unsympathetic Comedy Protagonist: Steven. And the Crystal Gems, too, to an extent.
  • Visual Pun: A rather subtle but ridiculous one. As Steven sings "Oh I know it'll be great," footage of cheese being grated (as in, grate/great) is shown.
  • Vulgar Humor: And how. Every sentence out of everyone's mouths is repurposed to say something obscene, such as about "fucking" in the first video.
  • You Are Fat: Apparently, this is why Pearl refuses to have sex with Amethyst.
    Amethyst: You're no fun anymore! This is why we never fuck anymore!
    Pearl: We don't fuck because you're fat and ugly.
    • Later, the Buzzfeed article of Steven's death refers to him as a "Small Fat Child".
