The original variant had dots and a character passing the logo and dots the "i".
This 1987 logo was one of the best known DIC logos. The CGI effects were made at PDI, and the other material was designed by Homer & Associates. First, the logo started off with a kid sleeping in his bed with his dog on it. Then the camera zoomed in to a window and a star appeared. Finally, the text turned in a 90 degree angle and the kid said the company's name. Also, the star stopped spinning and recedes into a spherical dot for the I. Today, this logo is still very popular, perhaps more so than other DIC logos. The font of this logo is a heavily-modified version of Gill Sans Ultra Bold.
In the 1990, the starfield was changed, along with the dot which the glow effect was removed. A different kid said the company name as well.
This period brought the Incredible World of DIC branding to the big and small screen. It was first used a standard logo in 1995, and made its first TV appearance in 2001.
