Jim Henson’s The Cube (1969)

THE CUBE…. Once you’ve seen it, you’ll never get out….

It was a Sunday afternoon, February 23,1969, when the anthology show NBC EXPERIMENT IN TELEVISION aired a one-hour teleplay by Jim Henson, then best known for being the man behind “Ralph the Dog” on the JIMMY DEAN SHOW.
