Hi, I was thinking about getting into Steven Universe, but... I'm kind of sick of watching the same lame humor incorporated in shows like Teen Titans Go and whatnot. What I mean, does Steven Universe teach morals?

Oh honey, where do I begin.

On the surface Steven Universe doesn’t look like much - it’s got a softer, melancholic vibe that’s super different from the loud goofy nonsense a lot of other cartoons are favoring lately - but there is an absolute wealth of moral and heart in this goddamn cartoon.

I’m gonna start with

  • Steven cries.  A fucking lot.

because it is my absolute favorite thing about this show.  This child cries about any number of things; when he’s sad, or angry, or happy (or because snakes don’t have any arms) - and no one ever tells him not to.  No one ever tells Steven not to cry.

“Man up!”

“Boys don’t cry!”


Jesus I’ll try to be brief..!  Here are a just few things SU is bringing to the table and reasons everyone should sit down and enjoy it:
