Both series are slated to premiere in 2013.
From Adventure Time's writer and storyboard artist, Rebecca Sugar, Steven Universe is about the youngest member of a team of magical guardians. The other series, Uncle Grandpa, is based on Pete Browngardt's short of the same name.
"Steven Universe and Uncle Grandpa will build upon our record-breaking streak with original programming, and further define the voice for Cartoon Network Studios comedies," said Rob Sorcher, Cartoon Network's chief content officer in a statement. "Rebecca and Pete represent our next generation of homegrown talent, following Pen Ward and JG Quintel who set a high bar with their distinctive visual storytelling and unique comedic styles."
