Rebecca Sugar sings a song from her new Cartoon Network show Steven Universe. She is an American artist, composer and director who is best known for being a writer and storyboard artist on the animated television series Adventure Time as well as being the creator of the series Steven Universe, which is set to debut on Cartoon Network in 2013. This will make her the first woman to create a show for Cartoon Network. She also did a few storyboards on the Sony Pictures Animation film Hotel Transylvania.
Steven Universe is a coming-of-age story told from the perspective of Steven, a chubby and happy-go-lucky boy and the youngest member of an intergalactic/ethereal team of warriors called the Crystal Gems. Together, the Crystal Gems fight and protect the Universe, while Steven strums up a catchy tune on his ukulele.
Crystal Gem Members
- Steven – The main protagonist, youngest member of the Crystal Gems, and the only male on the team. His gem stone is unknown with a power he has yet discover. Strangely, his gem is embedded within his abdomen. He is also musically talented on the ukulele and eager to prove his abilities to the Crystal Gems. He has clever 'come-backs' for insults but often too late. He is looked after by the 3 Crystal Gem warriors as though they were his big sisters. They live together in what appears to be a half suburban house/half magic crystal palace. Steven often eagerly awaits for the Crystal Gems at the crystal portal when they are away. Steven has a fondness for food and adventure.
- Garnet – The leader of the Crystal Gems. Her gem stone is a red garnet which is embedded into each of her hands. Activating her gem stones summons a pair of golden gauntlets of power. She has a calm and collected personality. She is physically the strongest member and is a mentor to Steven, though she hardly speaks more than a few words at a time.
- Amethyst – A member of the Crystal Gems. Her gem stone is an amethyst which is embedded in her chest. Activating her gem stone summons an energy whip. She tends to be more fun and care-free than the other Members. Loud and energetic, Amethyst is almost always cheerful.
- Pearl – A member of the Crystal Gems. Her gem stone is a pearl which is embedded in her forehead. Activating her gem stone summons a magic staff. Though physically dainty given her ballerina persona, she is the most outspoken of the three Crystal Gem members. She cares deeply for Steven's safety, but occasionally pokes fun of his antics.
