"The Cubing" is the eighteenth episode of the second season of Aqua Teen Hunger Force and the 36th episode overall. It originally aired on November 23rd, 2003.


Cold open: Dr. Weird loans Steve some foot cream. the cream mutates both his feet into a single, giant gorilla foot.

The Wisdom Cube, a cube from outer space, comes to the Aqua Teens' yard. It claims to have all of the wisdom in the universe, but it does little to reinforce its claim. Shake quickly warms up to him, but soon gets annoyed by his antics. Frylock asks him to solve a paradox, but all the Wisdom Cube says is "Yuh-huh". When they try to go out to the pool, Meatwad rolls back to listen to the cube's outrageous stories. Shake and Frylock discuss if Meatwad is smart enough to get out of the conversations, and in the middle of their conversation, Shake exclaims "For the love of all that's holy, there's another one, go under! " After a small conversation, the second cube apologizes and claims he's the "real" Wisdom Cube and the original cube is his cousin: the Dumbassahedratron. Frylock asks the real cube the paradox, but the cube leaves him with a flaming bag that contains "the answer". After some convincing by Shake and the two cubes, he puts the bag out, only to have his fry covered in dog crap. The real cube tries to convince him if he wants "the final final answer" he should put it in his mouth. The cubes fly up and are killed by a passing helicopter.

The REAL Wisdom Cube


  1. The Dumbassahedratron and the Wisdom Cube are shredded by an oncoming helicopter.


  • Bumper stickers on the false Wisdom Cube include "My dog is Smarter than your Honor Student", "Horn Broken... Watch for FINGER!", "My kid had sex With your honor student", "Ever stop to think and forget to start again?", "Hunker Down You Hairy Dawg.", a "Hello My Name Is" sticker with "Wisdom Cube" written on it, "IRS: We've got what it takes To take what you've got", "I'm not as think As you drunk I am", and "Kick Their Ass. Take Their Gas!" along with five other bumper stickers.
  • On the back of the phone book that Shake and the Wisdom Cube read from there is an ad for a personal injury attorney that reads "Injured? 1-800-555-6666 John E. Brestan, PC" who specializes in cases related to car accidents, work injuries, constipation, karate kicks, bad breath and gingivitis. John Brestan is actually an editor who works on Aqua Teen Hunger Force.
  • The helicopter that passes by at the end of the episode is an Enforcer helicopter from the early 90s Hanna-Barbera series SWAT Kats; the Enforcer symbol on the front is mostly covered up with gray. (This wasn't the first time footage was recycled from that series; the cityscape BG seen in every episode, and footage in the episodes Rabbot and Balloonenstein were taken from that series as well.)
