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. ----!!Tropes:%% * EvilSorcerer: Rubik's previous owner.* FadSuper: The title character is based off the Rubik's Cube puzzle that was extremely popular in the 1980's.* InterspeciesRomance: In one episode, one of the kids gets [[BalefulPolymorph turned into a dog]] to distract another, male, dog. Thing is, ''he'' gets turned into [[GenderBender a ''female'']] [[AttractiveBentSpecies dog]]. And the male dog gets very fond of 'her'.* LivingToys: The title character is a talking Rubik's Cube puzzle.* NoOntologicalInertia: Averted. While Rubik is powerless when scrambled, any spells he had in effect stay in effect (often to the detriment of the kids who had to solve him).* 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. (Usually with some added complication, from having to solve the cube while hanging upside down above an eagle's next, to having to do it without thumbs due to being turned into a dog).----
