There was a point in time where I forgot Cartoon Network even existed. One day I was watching great shows like Dexters Lab, Power Puff Girls, Ed, Edd and Eddy,Kids Next Door and other programs like that. and then the live programs started. Andrew W.K. and a bunch of live shows had ruined what I had once loved so I had to stop watching Cartoon Network.
And as time went on I found other TV shows that interested me. But one day I heard buzz for new cartoons on Cartoon Network. When I turned back I saw shows like Adventure Time, Regular Show, and The Amazing World of Gumball. I liked them but none of them really hooked me until I heard of one show. One amazing heart warming show, and it’s name is Steven Universe.
This show is amazing and touching and hits so many notes. This show about a boy who is half alien / half human raised by a group of aliens called gems. the whole family dynamic in this show makes me so happy that Cartoon Network is making cartoons again. The writing is fantastic, The characters are memorable and the world and lore it’s built around is phenomenal. In one episode you could be happy, sad, angry and feel emotions for the characters. And if more shows could be like this then maybe good cartoons aren’t as dead as the internet thinks.
So here’s to you Steven. I believe in you… and so does everyone else!
