Rubik, the Amazing Cube was yet another well-remembered 80s cartoon based on 80s pop culture namely the best-selling game puzzle cube of the same name. Rubik was an alien with an amazing array of powers, but was rendered powerless (in every sense) when his colored sides were mis-aligned. Usually the slightest tumble caused this to occur. I remember how animals would nudge Rubik causing him to misalign. Some animals actually RE-aligned Rubik as well.
It was refreshing to see some ethnic diversity within the show as well as the family who cared for Rubik were of latin decent. The opening theme was performed by latin sensation group Menudo who were also featured as a part of ABC's Saturday morning programming schedule the season that Rubik ran.
