Trivia

  • StevenBomb 1 marked the beginning of the new airing time for Steven Universe at 10:00 p.m. UTC.
  • Episodes within the airing cycle were moved around to make the StevenBomb 1 plot line flow better. These episodes include stand-alone episodes from Season 1 ("Open Book", "Story for Steven" and "Shirt Club") and "Full Disclosure", a Season 2 episode.
    • The schedule adjustments also resulted in the 2015 April Fools' Day episode "Say Uncle" airing during Season 2 instead of Season 1.
    • The episode airing order did not need to be adjusted for later StevenBombs.[8]
  • The name was derived from the opening scene in "Garnet's Universe", where Steven "Steven-bombs" Garnet from the rafters as she returns from a mission.[9]

  • The clip from "Cry for Help" introducing Pearl and Garnet's fusion was shown at SDCC 2015.
  • Promotional artwork for the first StevenBomb shows a panicked Steven running with a lit bomb in his hands. This is a reference to the film adaptation of the 1960s Batman series starring Adam West, in which Batman runs through a seaside town trying to get rid of a bomb.
  • The final episode of the second and third StevenBomb ("Chille Tid" and "Friend Ship") were both represented by a question mark in the promo art.
