The two projects hail from Cartoon Network Studios’ homegrown shorts development initiative. Steven Universe, from Adventure Time writer-artist Rebecca Sugar, is a coming-of-age story told from the perspective of Steven, the youngest member of a team of magical Guardians of the Universe. Uncle Grandpa, from Pete Browngardt, is based upon an Emmy-nominated short and follows the exploits of everyone in the world’s “magical” uncle and grandpa. Both shows are in preproduction and are slated for 2013 premieres.
