Although the [[WordOfGod official]] pronunciation for the company's name is [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Y-BvE_LvdhM "deek"]], it has become easy for one to joke about the fact that the name is one letter away from [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NHO84rOp8FQ sounding like "dick"]]. Andy Heyward had the pronunciation set up that way in honor of his father, Louis "Deke" Heyward, who himself worked in the television business as vice president of development for [[Creator/JackBarry Barry & Enright Productions]].

[=DIC=] has come to be described as an acronym for ''"Do It Cheap"'', although in the early days, they worked with Creator/TMSEntertainment (they weren't nearly as cheap as Creator/{{Filmation}}, as TMS was '''very''' expensive) [[note]]they also worked with other notable animation companies, such as Creator/{{Sunrise}}, Creator/ToeiAnimation, Creator/{{AIC}}, Creator/ProductionReed, Creator/StudioShaft, Creator/HanhoHeungUp, Creator/StudioPierrot, Creator/StudioGallop and Creator/WangFilmProductions during this period[[/note]]. They only switched to studios like Creator/KKCAndDAsia, Creator/HongYing, Creator/{{Saerom}} and Creator/SeiYoung later on as Creator/{{Disney}} and later Creator/WarnerBros were giving TMS more money for their shows. As a result, the higher-quality shows of the company's heyday in TheEighties (including ''WesternAnimation/InspectorGadget'', ''WesternAnimation/JayceAndTheWheeledWarriors'', ''WesternAnimation/{{MASK}}'', ''WesternAnimation/HeathcliffAndTheCatillacCats'', ''WesternAnimation/{{Dinosaucers}}'', and so on) would eventually give way to their unfortunately arguably better-remembered DorkAge, particularly its cartoons based on the ''WesternAnimation/SuperMarioBros'' and ''[[WesternAnimation/AdventuresOfSonicTheHedgehog Sonic The Hedgehog]]'' video games, which are also a frequent source in YouTubePoop (although the [[WesternAnimation/SonicSatAM Saturday-morning Sonic cartoon]] hasn't seen much use in YTP and still holds a serious fan following to this day). It is also infamous among the anime community for its [[CutAndPasteTranslation dub]] of ''Anime/SailorMoon'' (although in that case it is often a subject of {{misblame|d}} since the voices, dub script, and most of the editing was done by Optimum Productions).
