Background: DiC Home Entertainment (formerly "DiC Video" and "DiC Toon-Time Video") was the home entertainment arm of DiC Entertainment Corp. (later "Cookie Jar Entertainment, Inc.", now "DHX Media"), established in 1987 to distribute all DiC releases on video.

1st Logo

Nickname: "Constellation"
DiC Video (1987)

Logo: Just a still variant of the 1987 DiC logo on a space background with "VIDEO" underneath.

FX/SFX: None.

Music/Sounds: None.

Availability: Most DiC Video releases have been re-released under the "Incredible World of DiC Home Entertainment" label, so it's pretty rare. But it can be seen on a VHS release of Here Come The Littles, and tapes of The Super Mario Bros. Super Show and The Legend of Zelda.

Scare Factor: None.

2nd Logo

Logo: Same as the "Kid in Bed" logo, except the spiked star still keeps on spinning, and the 2nd logo's design appears with some differences and there are eyes in the two Os in "TOON".

FX/SFX: Same as the TV variant.

Music/Sounds: Same as the TV counterpart.

Availability: Extremely rare. Was only seen on Wish Kid tapes by BMG Kidz.

Scare Factor: Same as the television counterpart.

3rd Logo

Nicknames: "Deek!", "DiC TV", "DiC Egg", "The Prehistoric Logo"

Logo: Against a gray background, a crudely-drawn yellow cartoon TV with a blue screen zooms out, rocking left and right as it does so, and then settles the center of the DiC Toon-Time Video (1992)screen against a white egg shape. Then, a button on the right side of the TV flashes, the TV screen lights up, and the "DiC" logo in blue appears in the center as a kid says the company name. Then, "TOON•TIME VIDEO", in blue, fades in underneath.

FX/SFX/Cheesy Factor: All the animation in the logo; just DiC-quality animation.

Music/Sounds: The 1990 "Kid in Bed" theme is used in this logo, complete with the "Deek!" voiceover, with whooshing sounds added as the TV zooms out and a thud when it places itself in the center.

Availability: Seen on many 1990s DiC video releases. Inspector Gadget: Gadget's Greatest Gadgets has this logo, for instance.

Scare Factor: Low to medium, mainly due to the use of the "Kid in Bed" theme music.

4th Logo

DiC Home Entertainment (2001)
: "IWoD Globe"

Logo: Just the current DiC logo with "Home Entertainment" in a white script font zooming out below.

FX/SFX: Same as TV version.

Music/Sounds: Same as TV version.

Availability: No longer current, but common. Seen on DiC DVD releases from 2001 to 2008.

Scare Factor: Same as TV version.

5th Logo

Nickname: "IWoD Helicopter/Chopper"

Logo: We see the words "The Incredible World of" written in its usual script font (next to a simplified version of the DiC globe) attached to a set of yellow helicopter rotors. It DiC Home Entertainment "IWoD Chopper"  Opening Logo  (2002-)flies outward to a gray helipad situated on top of some dark letters, which rest on a large red table. As the logo lands, the rotors stop spinning and fold up inside the logo. Then, the letters below light up, revealing that they read "FEATURE PRESENTATION".

FX/SFX: This is some very nice animation!

Music/Sounds: The sounds of the rotors spinning, some whirring/clicking sounds as the rotors retract, and a weird "sproing" as the lights turn on.

Availability: Seen on DVD releases of Inspector Gadget's Last Case and Dennis the Menace in Cruise Control. It also appears during the "Visual History of the DiC" logo montage on the The Littles: The Complete Series DVD set. No longer current, in the meantime. It was also seen on promotional DiC DVDs given out in boxes of General Mills cereals in 2004.

Scare Factor: Minimal.
