Cartoon Net Unveils a New Kind of Superhero

The new half-hour animated series “Steven Universe” premieres tonight at 7 p.m. CT on Cartoon Network.

Steven is the proverbial “little brother” to a team of super-heroines, the Crystal Gems. He may not be as powerful, smart, or in control as his cohorts, but with the help of magic from his bellybutton, Steven finds surprising ways to save the day.

“Steven Universe” comes from the mind of Emmy and Annie Award-nominated writer and storyboard artist Rebecca Sugar (“Adventure Time”).

Cartoon Network is available to virtually all Suddenlink customers who have what is commonly known as Expanded Basic TV service.
