The Internet animation community is talking about one thing today: a series of tweets last night by “Adventure Time” storyboard revision artist Emily Partridge in which she identified artist Skyler Page, the creator of the Cartoon Network series “Clarence,” as sexually assaulting her.
While this week’s “Steven Universe” opened a lot of doors as far as characterization and parallels, it was simply okay. Mr. Pizza was comical relief but other than that you had to dig for the entertainment.
There’s something about Steven’s dad Greg that doesn’t add up. Will we ever really know why Greg distances himself from his son? This week in “Onion Trade,” we explored a dad’s horrible ability to remember things, witnessed Steven’s lack of male role models, and learned a lot more about Onion, a character who revealed quite a few new layers.
The notes were taken and everything was going fine. Then my laptop turned off and all lost. So now I’m sitting here with pieces of this week’s “Steven Universe” in my head hours after the fact.
