New, 6 comments

The best part of the show takes center stage

Cartoon Network will air new episodes of Steven Universe from July 18 through Aug. 12 at 7 p.m. ET.  The most promising of the lot will premiere July 19, based on new details from Entertainment Weekly. In a new clip from the episode, called "Mr. Greg," it's easy to see why: It's the first musical episode in the Cartoon Network hit.

As seen above, the July 19 episode features more musical numbers than any previous installment of the popular cartoon. The focus will be on the musical trio of Steven, Pearl and his dad, the ex-rock star Greg Universe.

Steven Universe is known for its excellent original songs, mostly composed by creator Rebecca Sugar. You can listen to one of our favorites below.
