On the basis of this, DIC should stand for Degrading, Insulting and Contemptible.
Tex Avery was one of the true greats of animation; his last work may have been for "The Kwicky Koala Show," but at least he was involved with it. "The Wacky World of Tex Avery" only used his name, and it tried to adopt his style of animation... but they forgot one little thing.
They forgot to make it funny.
The various components were hyperactive, but they weren't exactly amusing; and it wasn't like it was particularly well done animation-wise either. Even the theme music wasn't original. People wanting decent cartoons from France are better off with "Insektors"; for the true wacky world of Tex Avery, see the real cartoons he did and avoid this insult.
Incidentally, DIC is short for Diffusion, Information, Communication. All of which imply intelligence, which is in even shorter supply here than in most of the shows from that company.
