As Steven’s gotten older over the past five seasons of Steven Universe, he’s come into his powers in ways no one expected—not even the Crystal Gems. In this weekend’s surprised drop of two new episodes, Steven’s mysterious dream abilities take the center stage to reveal the Diamond he (and his mother) supposedly…
One of the most fantastic (and terrible) things about Steven Universe is how, in the course of a 10-minute story, a single episode can take you from laughing your ass off to bawling your eyes out thanks to some random bit of emotional character development. It’s a feature, not a bug, and boy, is it exhilarating.
In 2015, mobile developer Grumpyface Studios released Steven Universe: Attack the Light, a wonderful turn-based role-playing game that channels Paper Mario. For its console debut, Steven Universe: Save the Light, the studio delves even deeper into Nintendo territory.
It feels like it’s been years since we last heard what was going on with the residents of Beach City. There was a Steven Universe panel at this year’s New York Comic Con, but otherwise, there’s been no word of when the show might be coming back to finally answer some of its most pressing cliffhangers.
At the very end of this cute, two-and-a-half minute short from Justice League Action, the Clown Prince of Crime teeters on the precipice of a weird existential moment. See, he doesn’t know that he tried to kidnap himself.
Steven Universe: Save the Light is coming to PlayStation 4 and Xbox One next week, and a brand-new baddie is coming with it. Meet pompous Homeworld commander Hessonite.
When you watch certain cartoon series long enough, you start to develop a sense for the kinds of stories that the crew, cast, and network are comfortable telling. Of the many kinds of special episodes that The Powerpuff Girls have had, none stand out quite like the ones about adding a new hero to the mix.
It’s been a long time since there was a new episode of Venture Bros. 543 days, according to Cartoon Network. Fans have been left fearing that the cult-fave nerd-culture pastiche had crossed over to the astral plane for good. But they got a good omen last night.
The key to enjoying Cartoon Network’s recently rebooted Powerpuff Girls is understanding that it’s not trying to be the same cartoon as its predecessor. Bubbles wears barrettes now, Buttercup has a cowlick, and everybody sounds different. That’s just the way things are now and it’s perfectly ok.
The Boy Wonder as Steve Jobs is something I didn’t know I needed.
Yeah, yeah, Rick Sanchez is great and so is Morty and that joke you just made about McDonald’s Szechuan sauce was incredibly clever, but I need you to be quiet for a second and look at this art of the Vindicators. I mean really look at it. Drink it in. Savor it. Bask in its glory.
It’s just like Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory, only it costs a lot more money and, surprisingly, is even stickier than a river of chocolate.
Teen Titans Go! did a four-part series about fighting a dragon who wants to steal Cyborg’s favorite song, “The Night Begins to Shine.” (Because that is every dragon’s secret desire.) Following that story, Cartoon Network released the a music video for that song with the classic premise of “defeating evil with the…
“Stronger Than You” is perhaps Steven Universe’s best-known song, and is certainly one of its most beloved—a funky ode to the power of love that defines the series’ core themes. Cartoon Network took to Comic-Con last weekend to give the song its own music video, and it’s a lovely tribute to the show’s fans.
Steven and the Crystal Gems took on Comic-Con at Steven Universe’s very own panel today—and in-between beautiful live songs and some fun tidbits from creator Rebecca Sugar, we got some brief details about what to expect next on the series... like murder.
The world of Steven Universe is jam-packed with details fans have been dying to know about the series for years, whether its about the series’ wonderful world-building or behind-the-scenes tales of how the show became the phenomenon it is today.

With Rick and Morty being just days away from its third season premiere, Justin Roiland and Cartoon Network have been dropping a series of weird, unsettling shorts to get everyone back in the mood, as it were. This new trailer for the show’s upcoming third season, however, takes it about 1800 steps further.
Rick and Morty’s willingness to blatantly riff on and make fun of narrative tropes seen in scifi/pop culture is a large part of what makes the show so fun. While the show works perfectly find as 2D animation, it’s even more satisfying to see Rick and Morty getting into all kinds of craziness in as talking clay figures.
When Adventure Time makes its triumphant return to Cartoon Network next week with five all-new episodes, all will not be well in the Land of Ooo. For starters, something weird as hell is going on with Jake.
Steven Universe has become one of Cartoon Network’s most beloved shows—for everything from its nuanced characters to its toe-tapping music, to its gorgeous and vivid aesthetic. The great news is a new art book promises to reveal boatloads of work that went into making Steven Universe so good, and we’ve got a first…
