Mr. Jones-Quartey was the supervising director of Steven Universe for its first two seasons (and then some), and the pilot for OK K.O.!, Lakewood Plaza Turbo, was released at around the same time as Steven Universe’s but took much longer to get greenlit for a show.
It’s a very fun show and we think you should watch it; there is the occasional Steven Universe reference to catch, but it definitely stands on its own merits.
Have no fear though: while we like OK K.O.! we will continue being a Steven Universe podcast (though you can expect us to check in on Mr. Burnett once Craig of the Creek starts airing episodes next year).
