Aside from its thematic strengths and its delightful characters, if there’s one thing Steven Universe is known for, it’s having a killer soundtrack, jam-packed with powerful, toe-tapping songs. Last night’s episode was no exception, with a chill track that rivals some of the show’s very best musical moments.
It’s Steven Universe meets Adventure Time meets The Amazing World of Gumball meets The Regular Show meets Clarence meets Uncle Grandpa. Basically Cartoon Network: Battle Crashers is a whole lot of meeting followed by a whole lot of hitting.

For the first few weeks of Steven Universe’s “Summer of Steven,” we took a break from the show’s recent trend of worldbuilding-heavy plot arcs for some lighthearted downtime in Beach City. This week kicked the show back into high gear, though—especially with last night’s incredible episode.

There are two sides to Steven Universe’s addictive brilliance: One is its deft, deep character-driven storytelling and masterful slow burn approach to its worldbuilding and lore.

Summer always feels so full of things we should be doing, and yet, when there’s so much new television, why should we even bother to leave the house?

Good news, Steven Universe fans! In a surprise move, the show is coming back in two weeks, ahead of its previously announced June return. Slightly less good news? This fantastic new trailer has us freaking the hell out for Steven and the Crystal Gems.
The relationship between two female characters, Ruby and Sapphire, isn’t just one of the most delightful aspects of Steven Universe—it’s a groundbreaking portrayal of non-traditional love in a kid’s cartoon, that’s quite unlike anything on TV. And now, that love story is being retold in a gorgeous children’s book.

Peridot joining the Crystal Gems in Steven Universe has given us some great moments, and a softening of one of the show’s few villains. But while “It Could’ve Been Great” took us to the far flung reaches of the moon, it also showed us that Peridot still has a long way to go on her path to redemption.
Steven Universe is never afraid to turn its deft characterization skills to characters other than Steven himself, leading to the entire cast being incredibly well-fleshed out. But the show is always at it best when it turns its hand to Connie, and through her, the growth of Steven as a character as well.
Steven Universe is a show that prides itself in subverting gender sterotypes and championing non-binary displays of love, so two feminine characters dancing seems like a pretty mild thing to worry about. Fear not though, as there’s some very absurd people over at Cartoon Network UK who think that the above gif is TOO…
