""Cubix? What's that?" That's the answer I always get when I talk about this show. Most have never heard of it. It's a shame, because Cubix is a far better series than it's given credit for.
The CGI artwork, done by Korean firm Cinepix, is better than anything on TV, since may computer animated series are too video-game looking or are too realistic. Everything is very viberantly colored and totally realistic, but still with an amount of fantasy.
The story's interesting, too, since a show's no good with a bad storyline and good artwork. "Cubix:Robots for Everyone" focuses on 13-year-old Connor, a prodigous robot enthuasist. After his mother's death, his father Graham decides to move his donut shop and family to a new town. Their destination: Bubble Town, the world's robot capital. Connor is totally amazed by his new home, but Graham isn't too happy being around endless robots, since he has a preconceived prejudice against robots who can think for themselves. Connor's fasination leads him to join the town's robot club, the "Botties' Pit" and gain a new friend of his own, Cubix, a robot once dubbed "unfixable". Lurking around their corner is the villainous Dr. K, who is only interested in snatching a mysterious substance called "Solex" and not about the robots' feelings. Will Dr. K's plans prevail? Will Connor come to common ground with his father? Watch the DVD for yourself :). Unlike what you may expect, "Cubix" isn't a sci-fi series just showing the good of technology. Connor and his friends run into some sticky situations with unrulely robots, echoing "Metropolis".
The writing's cheesy at times, but still pretty good. My only complaint is that the storyline runs too short (only ten episodes per season). I do understand that something this good looking would be really expensive to produce, so I forgive them ^_^."
