Richie and Reggie search for Uncle Hyder’s fortune and Freckles and Peewee turn down the chance to be millionaires

Today’s story is one in a Richie genre that is repeated often through the years. A wealthy relative pops up out of nowhere and pits Richie and Reggie against each other to claim the relative’s excess fortune. Not that either kid needs more money and Richie never seems particularly interested in the fortune, but anytime he can compete, i.e. win against Reggie is a good time.

I love when Richie and Freckles throw things at the ghosts! But, the mace nearly murdering Freckles was too close for comfort for me.

I guess even though Freckles and Peewee turned down their share of the fortune, at least they have job security in that they can always live in and be the CEOs of their museum. And perhaps part of the museum can be turned into a fancy hotel because I don’t know who would want to travel to the island just to see a bunch of chubby angel statues.

In case you missed it, here’s another time F & P turned down easy money:

What did you think of Uncle Hyder’s treasure hunt?

Mr. Rich drinks Monster Cola and turns into a monster!

Today we have one of those stories with a very exciting cover, yet a story that doesn’t match your expectations at all.

But, first, let’s check out a story that seems very modern. Imagine the number of kids (and ADULTS!) currently at beautiful scenic views and historic locations all over the world, but they are only looking at their electronics. This one-pager is a precursor to this current problem, except that Mr. Rich and his friend seem fine with Richie ignoring the beauty of India. I am not fine with it, put your gadgets down Richie, and look around!!!

And now we have dear Richie beating cousin Reggie for the 800 zillionth time. Will Reggie ever learn?

And now on to the exciting-ish story of Monster Cola!

2014-09-30 20.15.43 2014-09-30 20.16.17 2014-09-30 20.17.01 2014-09-30 20.17.20 2014-09-30 20.17.49

Has Mr. Rich ever thought of pulling a Laurence Olivier and saying, “Try acting” to his actors? I think that might be easier. And how hard is acting like a monster? You either have a mask on and no one sees your acting anyway or you lurch around and mumble. I would think he would be better off making “Drama pop” that helps actors get more dramatic and upset and cry in a serious movie.

I was expecting a much scarier story along the lines of lack-of-sleep-Mr. Rich. If you missed it, see below:

Methinks there was more than sugar in that Strawberry pop! What did you think?

Breaking Richie Rich news! Plus Richie meets Jackie and “This is your Life” pt. 2 for Richard Rich!

ALERT ALERT ****BREAKING RICHIE RICH NEWS****HOT OFF THE PRESS****

Never thought we would have new Richie news! Richie Rich is coming back to TV in a live-action series! Read below:

http://www.sneakpeek.ca/2014/10/netflix-has-ordered-half-hour-comedy.html

How exciting! I will definitely be checking it out, I wonder if any of our favorite gang will be featured as well. Cad-bur-y! Cad-bur-y!

And now we have another “This is your life” story which is very important as it’s the first time Richie and Jackie meet and begin their pun-filled palling around. Enjoy Mr. Rekoj!

2014-10-20 13.11.55 2014-10-20 13.11.59 2014-10-20 13.12.03 2014-10-20 13.12.07 2014-10-20 13.12.11 2014-10-20 13.12.17 2014-10-20 13.12.20 2014-10-20 13.12.24 2014-10-20 13.12.28 2014-10-20 13.12.31

What do you think is the pun with Phil Phoop? It’s interesting that small-headed Richard produced large-headed Richie. Perhaps it is all from Regina’s gene pool.

I wonder if Jackie (or his clone father) was loosely based on Davy Jones. Jackie debuted in 1973 and the Monkees had been around before that. They certainly look and dress alike!

How strange to see Cadbury not behaving like the perfect butler! What did you think? And what do you think of a new Richie Rich TV show coming?

Rip van Winkle Richie, This is your life!

Today’s story is a special request from a reader and thanks to Tony H., I found it in record time! Richie falls asleep for 50 years and wakes up to a room full of geezers, enjoy!

2014-10-20 13.03.09 2014-10-20 13.03.12 2014-10-20 13.03.15 2014-10-20 13.03.19 2014-10-20 13.03.22 2014-10-20 13.03.28 2014-10-20 13.03.32 2014-10-20 13.03.36 2014-10-20 13.03.41IMG_1203

So….if Richie is 10 at the most, he would be 60, yet he appears to be 90. Cadbury should be around 90 and still looks fit as a fiddle! Poor Pierre, what kind of horrible future would have no food? I would be dropping by the old chef’s home every day.

What did you think of everyone’s appearance? I don’t see why Irona would get white hair, if anything, it should be a greenish patina. And Mr. Cheepers hasn’t aged a day. Old-timer Freckles and 0ld-timer Reggie could pass for twins! I think Richard and Regina must be getting some botox, or are in clone bodies as they look the youngest out of all the gang. And Gloria, dear, I think we can change our wardrobe slightly in 50 years, no? Or embrace our age with the white hair and lose the bow. I am impressed she is finally covering up her underwear, as would befit a woman of a certain age.

I would have liked some backstory as to what everyone has been doing for the last 50 years. We only know what Pierre is up to. What did you think? Next week’s story will be “This is your life” part 2 with Richard Rich and Jackie!

Mr. Rich doesn’t get his sleep and madness ensues!

Yiish, this story scares me! Let’s hope no one ever invents this pill!

IMG_1137 IMG_1138 IMG_1139 IMG_1141 IMG_1142 IMG_1144 IMG_1145 IMG_1147 IMG_1149 IMG_1151

Poor Richie! That would be terrifying to have your dad make such a personality switch. Thank goodness for his toy arsenal!

Where does Richard find these bodyguards? The hundreds of Rich Estate Police can’t provide enough protection? It is very creepy when he calls his own son “Young Rich” and then basically says, “Feel free to shoot him!” AAAAH! This story makes my stomach hurt! Thank goodness it was all a dream.

What did you think?

President Richie, pigeons, and the Presidente of El Squalid!

Today we have one of my favorite stories, but first, let us turn our eyes to this new development in Richieland:

http://www.cartoonbrew.com/cartoon-culture/joyrich-and-dreamworks-team-up-for-richie-rich-clothing-collection-103463.html

Not my cup of tea, but I am happy someone still cares to produce items with dear Richie.

And, in case you missed it, another company produced Richie clothing that was more up my alley in 2012, but I don’t like the big Mishka on everything. I do need to look into the baseball hat though, that looks fun!

And now to a cute Cadbury/Richie love-fest.

IMG_1095

I doubt that most rich people would find it “cute” that their offspring is behaving like the help. But, that is one of the many reasons we love Richard and Regina.

And now, from Richie Rich Riches #18, the very fun tale of Richie and Cadbury heading off to El Squalid!

IMG_1090 IMG_1091 IMG_1092 IMG_1093 IMG_1094 IMG_1096 IMG_1097 IMG_1098 IMG_1099 IMG_1100

I think they need to check the credentials on the UEOA kids. Nary a tuxedo among them! I’m skeptical they live on estates. :)

I’ve always loved this story, yet as a kid, I did not get the “Estates” vs. “States” difference. I thought Richie was voted President of the United States and I did not get why everyone kept making funny faces when he talked about being President. Nor why the guy at the end was shocked President Richie was the reason he was helping El Squalid. But, now that I get it, I like it even more!

Abraham Lincoln was defeated? Hee hee. Do you remember this one?

What ho, old bean, time for a bit of Cadbury!

How I do love Cadbury, and it’s high time for more of everyone’s favorite butler!

IMG_1069 IMG_1070 IMG_1071 IMG_1073 IMG_1074

Where do these people work that they all just pile in when they see a tuxedoed man appear? And why doesn’t Joe just hire a cook?

And now, we meet a new character…or do we?

IMG_1076 IMG_1077 IMG_1078 IMG_1079 IMG_1080

Oh Cadbury! Is there anything you can’t do? And he’s even dreamier with a beard….

We need more Cadburys in this world! Is Cadbury your favorite?

In case you missed it, there is more Cadbury here:
