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. Garnet also featured in two episodes of OK K.O.! Let's Be Heroes, first as one of the main characters in the episode "Crossover Nexus" and then as a cameo appearance in that show's finale.
The show ended after five seasons with the one-hour episode, "Change Your Mind", on January 21, 2019. A Made-for-TV Movie taking place two years after its events, entitled Steven Universe: The Movie, aired later that year on September 2. The series and movie have been succeeded by Steven Universe: Future, a 20-episode epilogue miniseries that began on December 7, 2019, and ended on March 27, 2020.
The series has a substantial amount of spin-off media detailed on the Franchise page.
