The 1985 sci-fi action cartoon ThunderCats is getting a 2019 reboot entitled ThunderCats Roar, but it’s nowhere near as dark or sexy as the original
A new fan theory is going around that ‘Steven Universe’ may have gotten a whole lot queerer — with a trans character hiding in plain sight
Steven Universe, TV’s most progressive cartoon, has branched out into children’s books with The Answer, a story about a loving, lesbian relationship.
Not every tie-in video game is good — but thankfully, Steven Universe gets the game it deserves; Attack the Light feels so much like the show, it’s a playable episode.

Finally, a cartoon with women of color, body-positivity, gender fluidity… ‘Stephen Universe’ has ’em all!
Cartoon Network UK has decided to make Steven Universe, the most progressive cartoon ever, way less progressive by cutting out queerness.
Cartoon Network (or CN as it’s sometimes known) was founded in late 1992 as part of the Turner Broadcasting group of cable channels. Other Turner channels include CNN, TBS, TCM and TNT.
CN was originally founded as a place to play the archival cartoons of recent Turner acquisition Hanna-Barbera. In the earliest days of the network, their primetime slots were often filled with forgotten titles from the 1970s like Wait Till Your Father Gets Home intended for ironic viewing.
Soon however, CN started making its own original programming. As if a natural extension of programming ironic viewing, the first series produced by Cartoon Network was Space Ghost: Coast 2 Coast, a brilliant deconstruction of the talk show format. The show featured recycled animation from the 1960s Space Ghost sci-fi adventure series.
Of course, now much of Cartoon Network’s programming is original, from historical hits like Dexter’s Laboratory and Powerpuff Girls, to current favorites like Steven Universe and Adventure Time. Not just that, but their official website has loads of popular free games as well.
As for Space Ghost? He ended up being the first building block to what would eventually become the alternative comedy powerhouse programming block [adult swim], which takes over the channel at night.
