    As a Steven Universe fan, I hear lots about other great Cartoon Network shows. Including, of course, the one that boosted Steven Universe creator Rebecca Sugar’s fan cred: Pendleton Ward’s Adventure Time.* So many of my nerdy friends/random people on the Internet love this show, so I thought I’d give it a try.
