Rubik, the Amazing Cube is a 30-minute Saturday morning animated series based on the puzzle created by Ernő Rubik, produced by Ruby-Spears Enterprises and broadcast as part of The Pac-Man/Rubik, the Amazing Cube Hour block on ABC from September 10, 1983 to September 1, 1984. The Rubik half hour was broadcast in reruns as a standalone series on ABC from May 4 to August 31, 1985.
The program features a magic Rubik's Cube named Rubik who can fly through the air and has other special powers. Rubik can only come alive when the colored squares on his sides had been matched up. The voice of Rubik, Ron Palillo, told TV Guide in 1983 that for the role, he spoke very slowly and then technicians sped up the tapes and raised the pitch. Palillo said Rubik's giggle is very different from the trademark laugh of Horshack, his character on the TV series Welcome Back, Kotter, and that it is pretty "for an inanimate object".
