    The fact creators of Gumball created proper organs and digestive-systems for ice-cream cones and balloons for just one episode is NUTS!
  • @aliciab33
    "Still more medically accurate than Grey's Anatomy" should be a common meme
  • @MsNekoLp
    "Why is this so accurate?" Because it's Steven Universe. A great cartoon that loves to tackle important topics and messages like mental health ect.
  • @KingBongHogger
    Cartoons use the x-ray effect because of nukes. Back when they tested nukes in the 40's and 50's a lot of the soldiers said they covered their eyes with their hands and the light was so bright they could see their bones under their skin. Kind of like how you can see light on the other side of your hand when you put your hand over it in the dark.
  • Steven Universe tends to focus on more deep subjects like Abandonment, Racism, Homophobia, and Depression. So it’s not surprising that Steven Universe got so medically accurate.

    12:25 It's giving Gumball 😂 "What's wrong with 'Nicole'?" "That's my middle name. MY FIRST NAME IS DOCTOR.
  • @Plasma_Kirby333
    This is why I love Steven Universe so much! It is such a fantastic show! Other than the comedy and the drama and the happy and emotional scenes, the show also talks about serious topics like this and other things like abandonment, betrayal, war and the impact of war, burdens that are hard to escape from, and lots of trauma. The fact that this show can be both entertaining and serious at the same time is just amazing. This is my favorite show and it always will be.

    As a mental health professional, I LOVE that snippet of Steven Universe! A show actually stating facts!!😍🤩😍

    No matter how smart Dexter is he’s still a kid and is very gullible when his sister makes jokes
  • 5:29 "Balloons don't have openings on their mouth." Me, an intellectual: "Balloons don't have mouths, Dr. Mike. Balloons don't have mouths."

    8:51 I gave my thumbs up exactly here. But not without rolling my eyes while smiling.
  • @Desert-Dweller
    My son caught chicken pox when he was 3. He passed it me, i was 27. Honestly i felt just like an evil contaminated chicken. Very accurate cartoon. 👍🏼
  • "Why is this so good and so accurate?!" I have a feeling mike should definitely watch steven universe and experience how amazing and at times mature it is😁
  • @ILoveCookies190
    The fact that this scene 7:00 Actually made Mike laugh, Really shows its actually funny.
  • @IceePhoenix
    I loved Steven Universe Future, it was one of the first steps towards me actually getting help in therapy because I could relate to Steven a lot and the show helped me open up and talk about that and how it was affecting me. Glad to see it getting some praise!
  • @Leo-mt9ny
    Calling lungs "double liver" was pretty funny ahaha😂
  • @bee65
    People often forget how impactful children’s cartoons/mediums can be created to be. Cartoon Network has been a leading force in boosting the voices of artists and their works over what will solely be profitable. I’ve written research papers covering many literary theories they display throughout their educational programming. They’re incredibly focused on self growth, healthy relationships/workspaces, and draw attention to social issues, subtle and otherwise.

    Well, thanks to this video I now know that the little bump I've had on my leg for years and years is dermatofibroma. I'd asked my doctor about it a handful of years ago and they said it wasn't harmful but I didn't remember the name. Thank you! The Rugrats episode about getting a 'rooster shot' still lives in my brain tot his day. I don't mind needles though 😂
