And So It Begins

Watch Steven Universe, the First Cartoon Network Series Created by a Woman

While everybody else this morning is watching a new trailer for Man of Steel (we’ll post it later, I promise), you’re going to be different. A rebel. You’re going to watch the pilot for Steven Universe, created by Rebecca Sugar, the lady behind lots and lots Adventure Time‘s songs. It’s a show about three magical girl heroes, the Crystal Gems, and their over-eager protege Steven. And it’s pretty freakin’ great.

Edit: The original video disappeared! I’ve replaced it with another, and if that goes out, try here. And if that goes out, at least here are some screen shots and a synopsis.

    So so good! I’m so so excited for this show, and Lakewood Plaza Turbo. I have high hopes for the future of Cartoon Network where I didn’t before.

    This looks incredible. I wasn’t quite sure if Garnet originally asked “why are you such a Buttface?” And when it was confirmed – and revealed to be a crucial moment in the narrative – I just about lost my mind. I need this show in my life.

    Oh, and wrap some bacon around the hotdog in that Dog-Nut and I’m all over that.

    Can I be the #1 Pearl fan?

    So… Sugary. Can’t wait to rot my eye-teeth weekly on this animated confection.
