Steven Universe is the show we needed as children. It’s the show that speaks to the child within us that still needs to hear everything it has to tell us. It’s a show that is, somewhat ironically, about the realities of world we live in that doesn’t underestimate the intelligence of its intended audience. It’s a show that displays over and over again, why representation matters.
So yes, it is a kid’s show. And I am so very glad it is.
