These Steven Universe quotes will give you a peek into the modern cartoon that has something for all ages.
The show was created by Rebecca Sugar, known for being the first woman and non-binary creator for any show produced by Cartoon Network.
It’s a place where the ironies of adult life are sprinkled with the curiosity of children, high-level learning, and wokeness all at the same time.
Sugar loosely based the titular character on her brother Steven, creating a unique perspective for the show.
Anyone who has seen an episode knows that times have indeed changed.
It was only a few generations ago that cartoons were filled with racist imagery, xenophobia, extreme violence, and political propaganda.
Sugar notes that she “tried to be a role model” for anyone looking to take traditional animation ideas and make them relevant to the present generation.
