Plot Synopsis

STEVEN UNIVERSE is a 15-minute animated series that follows the misadventures of Steven, the ultimate little brother to the Crystal Gems, a trio of self-appointed guardians of the universe. Whether Steven is trying to find a trick to summon his magic weapon or searching for an item that can save Beach City from a magical comet hurtling toward the town, Steven and the Crystal Gems work together to save the day. Steven is a half-Gem of a boy, who is still trying to figure out his powers to become the true hero he is destined to be. He still doesn't have much control over his powers, which originate from the gem in his bellybutton, which means Gem magic can crash into his everyday life. With one foot in the human world and another in a magic world, sometimes his mortal quirks even disrupt Gem missions he takes with the Crystal Gems: Garnet, the mysterious and powerful leader; Pearl, the perfectionist who craves structure and logic; and Amethyst, the prankster and loose cannon of the group. Featured voices also include: Sinbad, Joel Hodgson, Grace Rolek, Atticus Shaffer, Reagan Gomez, and Brian Posehn, along with special guest stars Aimee Mann and Nicki Minaj. Cartoon Network originally aired the pilot of STEVEN UNIVERSE on July 27, 2013, during its Big Fan Weekend. On Thursday, May 12, 2016 at 7pm ET/PT on Cartoon Network, STEVEN UNIVERSE returned for a four-week event, "In Too Deep." with a series of earth-shattering events lead to a whole new world of trouble for Steven and the Crystal Gems. On the premiere night, Cartoon Network premiered back-to-back episodes, including: "Super Watermelon Island" (7pm), as Steven finds out what happened to all those sentient watermelons he created; and "Gem Drill" (7:15pm), as Steven takes a journey deep underground. The "In Too Deep" event ends on June 2.
