They have also released [[http://cinemassacre.com/2011/04/01/super-mario-bros-super-show-dvd-menu-screen-review/ EasyPlay]] [=DVDs=] in the late '90s distributed by Creator/{{Lionsgate}}, in which you can hear Inspector Gadget deliver an extremely long and [[ViewersAreMorons detailed]] lecture on how to use it. This is [[JustifiedTrope somewhat justified]] since [=DVDs=] were still new at the time, though because you have to "move the glow" to the [=DiC=] logo and click on it, [[FridgeLogic you already know how to use it anyway]].

[=DiC=] remained an independent studio for much of its days under Heyward's watch, until 1993 when it formed a joint venture with Captial Cities, the parent company of the Creator/{{ABC}} network. It became a subsidiary of Creator/{{Disney}} after their takeover of Capital Cities in 1996. Unlike ABC, Disney had little interest with [=DiC=] and sold the studio back to Heyward in 2000. In 2008, the studio was acquired by Creator/CookieJarEntertainment, which itself was acquired by Creator/DHXMedia in 2012. Currently, with certain exceptions, all of [=DiC=]'s programming archive are controlled by DHX.

Although the [[WordOfGod official]] pronunciation for the company's name is [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uLXP0TZ8s0Q "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]]. Only switching 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 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. It is also rather 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).
