    1. There was some company behind some cartoon shows in the 70’s called “DIC” and when the name appeared at the end of one of their shows there was a little girl voice that said “Dick” as it was shown. Roger was real fond of that one.

      1. I remember that this came up in school one time when I was in about the third grade. The teacher asked for an example of a company name or a proper noun or something and this bad kid said “Dic”. He knew it would get a laugh out of the class, and the teacher wasn’t satisfied when he tried to explain that it was a logo that came up after TV shows.

    1. I never watched that show. They remade the twilight zone and the outer limits at around the same time but I wasn’t really into those either. I guess I was burned out on television by the end of the 70s.

      1. I used to watch the new Twilight Zone in the 80s and thought it was good at the time, but I tried to go back and watch some of those a few years ago and found it intolerable. Utter dreck even by my liberal standard for nostalgic entertainment.
