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.
Jim Henson created this unique film, titled simply THE CUBE. It starred Richard Schaal as a man trapped in a white cubical room. He had no idea how he got there or where it was. And although anyone could enter, he couldn’t leave….
A deceptively simple teleplay, THE CUBE worked its way into the memories of many who have seen it. Metaphysical play, philosophical allegory, dark comedy, psychological drama– THE CUBE is as hard to categorize as it is to describe.
But THE CUBE is there, waiting, within our memories. And it’ll never get out of there, it’ll never get out of there, it’ll never get out of there….
