Many Steven Universe episodes have been censored in foreign adaptations. Censorship has been reported in Latin America, Brazil, Spain, Malaysia, Philippines, Romania, Hungary, Italy, Turkey, Russia, Bulgaria, Poland, Australia, Taiwan, Middle East, Netherlands, Sweden, Denmark, Portugal, France, Indonesia, Ireland and the United Kingdom. These edits mainly occur due to television content guidelines differing from the United States, and often include removing scenes or lines that may be unsuitable for younger viewers. Cultural differences are also another common reason episodes might get censored. Most censored versions in regions controlled by Turner EMEA use a master "foreign" edit, with broadcasts in some countries further shortening these already edited versions (e.g. Russia and Bulgaria).
