Steven may not be as powerful as the Crystal Gems. Or as savvy. And he may not have much control over his powers. But that doesn't stop him from joining Garnet, Amethyst and Pearl on their magical adventures and somehow finding a way to save the day. New episodes of STEVEN UNIVERSE will premiere on Cartoon Network this spring.
