"We... are the Crystal Gems, we'll always save the day,
and if you think we can't, we'll always find a way!
That's why the people of this world believe in
Garnet, Amethyst, and Pearl - AND STEVEN!"

Steven Universe is a Cartoon Network show from Rebecca Sugar, an Adventure Time alum and author of Pug Davis. It is the network's first series to be created and headed solely by a woman and an openly LGBT individual.note 

Debuting on TV on November 4th, 2013, the series follows the Coming of Age 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 or savvy as the other Crystal Gems, and he may not have much control over his powers, but that doesn't stop him from joining Garnet, Amethyst, and Pearl on their magical adventures and finding a way to save the day. As the story continues, Steven starts to find out what exactly they're saving the day from, and the plot comes to encompass much more than just one sleepy beach town...


Steven Universe has had a (non-canon) Crossover episode with — of all shows — Uncle Grandpa. It has also featured in another crossover episode with OK K.O.! Let's Be Heroes among many other Cartoon Network shows.

The series has a number of spin-off media detailed on the Franchise page.

On July 21, 2018, it was announced at the San Diego Comic-Con that there will also be a Made-for-TV Movie titled Steven Universe: The Movie.

There is a recap page, as well as a Best Episode Crowner.
