Andy Heyward's upbringing was robust with access to the entertainment elite, including his first start as an assistant for legendary animator Joe Barbera of Hanna-Barbera on Yogi's All-Star Laff Olympics. In 1986, Heyward and other investors bought the DIC Enterprises from the Bertelsmann-owned RTL Group. Heyward's most successful years, while he was in charge of DIC, were prior to his Father's passing. Heyward eventually sold a majority interest in DIC to Capital Cities/ABC in 1993. In 2000 with two venture capital firms, Heyward re-purchased DIC Enterprises. On June 20, 2008, Heyward announced that he was selling DIC Entertainment to Cookie Jar Group.
