UPDATE: A new media release provided to the Mercury announced that the Steven Universe/VooDoo Doughnut partnership will instead be taking place on Saturday, February 3.

Do you loooove Voodoo Doughnuts? Are you obsessed with the Cartoon Network show Steven Universe, AKA one of the cutest, purest, most original, inclusive, and insightful cartoons on TV today? Well then tomorrow is your lucky day: In celebration of Rebecca Sugar’s Steven Universe: The Complete First Season coming to DVD January 30 (omg, finally!), VooDoo Doughnut is getting in on the action, selling various Steven Universe-inspired doughnuts at select locations throughout the day on Saturday, February 3. To cop these Crystal Gem-inspired goodies, visit VooDoo Doughnut in downtown Portland, Austin, Denver, and Universal CityWalk in Los Angeles.

The LA location is taking things a step further, building a giant doughnut wall based off the DVD cover and hosting some of the show’s voice stars, including Zach Callison (Steven), Deedee Magno Hall (Pearl), and Michaela Dietz (Amtheyst).

A full-season DVD release has been a long time coming—SU is currently on season five. Until recently, fans had to have Cartoon Network or Hulu to watch seasons of the Emmy-nominated show. Even if you don't buy it in hardcopy, this show is a must-watch for all ages. (I've found it's one of the few shows that can zap me out of my seasonal depression and reinstate some semblance of faith in humanity.) And anyone who already watches the show will attest that a doughnut-related kick-off is right up Steven Universe's alley.
