''Rubik the Amazing Cube'' was a 1983 Creator/RubySpears animated series based on... well... the [[FadSuper then extremely popular]] [[ExactlyWhatItSaysOntheTin Rubik's Cube puzzle toy]]. In this short-lived series, a trio of Latino siblings (Carlos, Lisa, and Reynaldo Rodriguez) are casually walking around a forest at night, and happen to witness a strange gypsy/magician-type character going at top speed in a horse-drawn cart. A strange object falls out of the cart, which looks like a Rubik's Cube. One of the kids picks it up and solves it, and lo and behold, the thing comes to life, complete with a face and legs. He calls himself Rubik, and immediately bonds with the kids, who soon have wacky misadventures with the eponymous cube.

* OnceAnEpisode: Whenever Rubik gets bumped too hard, his cube jumbles up, [[DeusExitMachina trapping him inside]] and forcing one of the kids to solve the cube to free him.
