Welcome, Crying Breakfast Friends, to the very first Stars In Our Eyes MUSIC BREAK! In this sub-series, I’ll be performing, analyzing, and theorizing about the songs from Steven Universe. First up, The Cookie Cat Rap!
He’s a frozen treat with an all new taste!
’cause he came to this planet from outer space!
A refugee of an interstellar war!
But now he’s at your local grocery store!
He’s a pet for your tummy!
He’s super duper yummy!
He left his family behind!
Now available at Gurgens off Rt. 109!
This song is more than a parody of thick headed advertising aimed at the youth market, it actually foreshadows many elements revealed in future episodes of Steven Universe! Cookie Cat is from outer space, and as we learn in upcoming episodes, so are the Crystal Gems!
However, Cookie Cat is a refugee who left his family behind to escape an interstellar war. As we know from offhand remarks and a few stories related by Pearl, there was once a Gem Rebellion staged on Earth. Theoretically, Rose and her band of rebels The Crystal Gems defended earth for various reasons, but mostly out of some form of love or respect. It was a deadly conflict, and many gems were shattered and humans killed, but Rose Quartz was able to save a few of her closest friends (Ruby, Sapphire, Pearl, and maybe others – though not Amethyst, since she emerged from the Kindergarten after the Gem Rebellion).
That means the Crystal Gems are not refugees, they are rebels – and as such, they do not reflect many of the main themes presented within the song. So it’s my theory that this song actually foreshadows not future plot reveals about the past – but a dark future where Steven Universe and the Crystal Gems will have to leave their families behind and abandon Earth so they can regroup and reclaim the Earth!
