Try using the "duplicate special" operation and set the options to use "Duplicate input graph". The keys should copy over now.

i've never done it before but you might be able to use the trax editor to export and import an animation

take a look at the maya tutorials that come with maya it will tell you something about the trax editor

also...
i think you might be able to see the animation in the hypergraph after some fiddling around? only seen it with set driven keys but you might be able to copy that animation and set it's inputs to the cube
