Cartoons and ukulele

If you're a Steven Universe fan, you've probably heard of Rebecca Sugar ... or maybe not. Rebecca Sugar is the creator of Steven Universe, this time I want to dedicate this blog to talk about her because she was the reason I started playing ukulele so if you want to know more about this fascinating woman keep reading.

Before starting Steven Universe, Sugar worked in the cartoon of Cartoon Network Adventure time as a storyboard supervisor. From the second season she was promoted to screenwriter; his first episode was "It Came from the Nightosphere" (2010), followed by others such as "Mortal Folly" (2011), "Fionna and Cake" and "What Was Missing" (2012). Rebecca remained in Ward's team until the fifth season, saying goodbye with the "Simon & Marcy" chapter.

It was in It Came From the Nightosphere where the first song written by her in the series "Daddy, Why did you eat my fries?" and although not many people know it, the original demo was playing in a Ukulele!

But in addition to this song he wrote others for adventure time while he worked on the program, such as · All gummed up inside "," Daddy's little monster "," I'm just your problem "and others, all played in ukulele that you can listen to here.

After leaving Adventure Time Rebecca sugar began directing her first cartoon for Cartoon Network thus becoming the first woman to direct a cartoon!

In Steven Universe, the main character (Steven) plays the ukulele and appears in the series with him repeatedly, including the full version of the intro song

Throughout the series, Rebecca Sugar composes different songs, which perfectly match the situations that the characters go through creating a beautiful soundtrack that you can listen to completely here.

In addition to his project, Sugar returned to Adventure Time one last time with a song for his seventh season that was called, "Everything Stays."

So you know, let this woman be an inspiration to you, you can incorporate the ukulele beautifully into your personal projects!
