Yet one more heavy-hitter from Cartoon Community graces this checklist. Created by Rebecca Sugar, “Steven Universe” informed the story of a younger boy residing with three magical, humanoid aliens often called the Crystal Gems. The present adopted their adventures, hangouts, and life classes within the city of Seashore Metropolis.
Half superhero sci-fi epic, half hangout sitcom, “Steven Universe” is the nice and cozy, pastel-colored flipside to the crisp, forbidding menace of “Over the Backyard Wall.” And but, the 2 reveals have rather a lot in frequent.
Whereas their tonal approaches could also be totally different, each sequence are basically within the significance of household, discovered or in any other case. And the place the overarching emotional arc of “Over the Backyard Wall” is Wirt taking motion and standing up for his youthful brother, “Steven Universe” is equally targeted on the power of radical kindness. Likewise, whereas each reveals have wildly totally different musical tastes, if the song-filled stylings of “Over the Backyard Wall” did it for you, you could be amenable to the toe-tapping numbers in “Steven Universe” (which are usually about issues like anxiety and grief, regardless of the ukuleles). And yeah, they do not have drunken brass sections or a Tom Waits-like sway, however few issues within the twenty first Century do.
