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!

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.

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:

A special guest blogger presents Richie Rich in “The Big Swim” & “Busy Kids”!

I am so excited for this blog because we have a guest blogger, the fabulous Larry T, whose Richie opinions I always love to read. I asked if he would submit stories and thoughts from time to time and I am thrilled we got him! I have put Larry’s comments in italics, but I believe you will be able to tell the difference as my commentary tends to have a lot of exclamation marks!

Read on and enjoy…

Big Swim 1 Big Swim 2 Big Swim 3 Big Swim 4 Big Swim 5

I found this story rather interesting because it paints Richie in a less admirable light. It was illustrated by Dom Sileo and is rather out of character for our friend (and Gloria too, who outright insults the antagonist).

First of all, although Hank is obnoxious (including to the teacher/chaperone) and even when he’s outright told he’s a jerk, he laughs it off. You’d think that by this point in his life someone would have laid him flat out and he’d have begun to figure things out…

Secondly, Richie takes it upon himself to provide retaliation…moreover, he uses his wealth to rub the loss in Hank’s face. Generally Richie’s character doesn’t resort to this kind of thing. The unfortunate message is that I’m sure many kid thought to themselves after reading this, “Oh, I guess only the rich people have the power to instigate discipline on troublemakers. I’m not rich, so I’ll just have to shut up and put up.” :)

Excellent job of chaperoning, lady! Just read your book, no one will be trying to drown Richie or his friends….

And now a story where we see how difficult it is to get hard working employees…

2014-08-06 12.44.45 2014-08-06 12.44.48-1 2014-08-06 12.44.52-1 2014-08-06 12.44.55-1 2014-08-06 12.44.58-1

This is a wonderful little story basically explaining why the Rich family is wealthy (from Richie Rich #11):

1.) Richie properly assesses why the boys’ business is failing

2.) Richie sees an opportunity to invest in a market he can grow

3.) When business picks up, Richie expands into other services to continue the growth of the venture

4.) As demands grow, profits grow, and the business transforms

5.) When normal kids tire of working, Richie keeps thinking of ways to 1-up his business

6.) The regular boys avoid doing scholastic tasks like arithmetic and leadership where Richie tackles them…and naturally ends up in the manager’s seat

This is likely what he’s learned from being the only child of a business mogul. :) (even if his net profit is low…had he kept going, it would have risen)

Thank you, Larry!

Have you seen these stories before?
