DIC, the American dream
Do you know what the initials DIC stand for? Diffusion, Information Communications: not the most whimsical of names. And yet, beyond the serious exterior lies a French animation studio which made it its business to capture the imaginations of thousands of children. In 1981, the studio became a famous name thanks to the seriesUlysses 31. This development marked the company’s arrival on the international stage, as Jean Chalopin led DIC into its golden age. Its reputation was consolidated further by the massive success of The Mysterious Cities of Gold and Inspector Gadget.
