Bee and Puppycat, Steven Universe Both Get More Episodes

Bee and Puppycat is in the final hours of its Kickstarter drive, but that hasn’t stopped the show from blowing through another stretch goal in about a day. Creator Natasha Allegri thanked fans with this preview of some of the new characters we can expect to see on the nine-episode show (as well as those introduced in the original short).

And speaking of deconstructions of magical girl anime created and repackaged for a Western action cartoon audience by women who grew up on both, Steven Universe, Cartoon Network’s strongest premiere of 2013, has had its first season expanded by thirteen episodes, bringing it to 26. Now that’s a perfect porkchop.

Let This Fan Art Remind You That Steven Universe Premieres Tonight

Asiey Barbie’s Garnet is rocking my socks off, but maybe it’s just because Garnet is already my favorite character in Steven Universe and I’ve only seen two episodes of it. You can watch both of those episodes when the show premieres tonight on Cartoon Network!

And speaking of shows created by Western female animators who grew up on Eastern Magical Girl stories and are now reinterpreting, repackaging, and reimagining those tropes for a the Western audience for action cartoons, this is your reminder that you’ve only got ten days to pledge for the Bee and Puppycat Kickstarter!

Get Ready to Love Every Character in Steven Universe by the End of This Clip

The Steven of Rebecca Sugar‘s Steven Universe is based on her own brother Steven, who, incidentally, is now an adult with a beard who works on backgrounds for the show. In that light, it’s easy to see the older members of the Crystal Gems as different incarnations of older sisterhood: the Kind Guardian, the Rough Playmate, and the Inscrutably Cool Older Sibling. That said, they are indisputably all awesome.

Steven Universe, First Cartoon Network Show Created by a Lady, Gets a Theme Song

The whole show will be on its way to us next month, but those lucky enough to get into the Steven Universe panel at NYCC were treated not just to this opening sequence, but a whole episode. And, naturally, a Q&A with creator Rebecca Sugar herself. Fans who managed to catch the leaked pilot were a little freaked out, I think, by the changes made in character designs, but Sugar reassured them that changes were not made out of network pressure or budget limitations: just the simple process of taking an animated series from the concept stages into full production.

Yes, I have been humming this song to myself all day.

Get Psyched: Steven Universe Has a Premiere Date

Are you excited for Steven Universe, the new Cartoon Network series created by Rebecca Sugar, who not only has a sweet (heh) name but has also worked on Adventure Time? I don’t know about you, but I’m excited for work by anybody who’s even waved to Adventure Time on the street, not to mention the first Cartoon Network series to be created a woman. Here’s the first poster, which looks pretty kickass. The show will premiere on November 4th.

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.

Here’s Our First Look at Steven Universe, by Cartoon Network’s First Female Showrunner

Behold! This is the first poster for Steven Universe, created by Rebecca Sugar, who’s done a lot of songwriting and storyboarding for Adventure Time and has become, with Steven Universe, Cartoon Network’s first female showrunner.

As we reported before, this new show is about the youngest member of a group of magical Guardians of the Universe. He’s the one flexing in the middle surrounded by fierce-looking ladies, I assume.
