Richard and Richie on a deucedly frightning elevator adventure

Happy Thanksgiving and Happy Chanukah! Today we have a very scary story involving Richard Rich Senior and Junior. I hope you are not claustrophobic, because this one involves being trapped in a box!

There was a similar scene in Superman Returns (2006) where Lois and her young son were trapped in a sinking yacht in the middle of the ocean. I couldn’t breathe during that whole scene; what a horrible way to go. Thank goodness Superman saved them in the movie, and thank goodness for Richie’s shiny coin!

I love how all the crooks are always named Shorty, Leftie, Spike, or Fingers. And they always look so mean! How could anyone think these were the real Rich’s for even a moment? With those bad guy eyebrows, they would have been busted immediately! Happy Turkey day to those who celebrate!

Never say “Hi” to Richard Rich!

It’s amazing how sometimes you ask the universe for something and you get it! I was asked on the last story if there were any Richie stories that take place in Istanbul, which did not ring any bells. But, last night, I was reading some Richies and I found one! Admittedly, it is just a frame that mentions Istanbul and not a whole story, but hey, it’s still pretty random that I happen to read it that night!

The above is actually a really fun story of Richie and Reggie racing across the world! It is too long for my little blog (15 pages), but it’s only $1 on the Richie Rich App if you want to download. It’s Richie Rich Classic Comics #7.

Today’s story revolves around Richard Rich, Sr., who is normally a smart, manly, in-control businessman; but today he shows he has fears and foibles like the rest of us! I apologize for the poor quality, but try to enjoy anyway!

He’s back in the saddle again! What did you think?

I love every time a new country joins the list!

Anyway, off to today’s story which involves Richie and Jackie and some exciting train hijinks! But first, a little one pager I love where Reggie gets what he deserves.

Are you a Jackie Jokers fan?

Freckles and Peewee fix a 3,000 year old statue with gum and Mrs. Rich makes a fetching football player!

Today’s story posting was inspired by one of our fan club members, Daniel, who wanted to know which story included Gloria playing football. Unfortunately, that one is not ringing a bell for me, but I have sent notes out to preeminent Richiephiles who may know, or if you know, do comment below!

I did remember this fun story where Regina dons her little designer American football outfit. Which has a helmet, but no padding so I hope no one tackles her! Enjoy!

I love when she plays with Richie instead of being jewelry obsessed all day! What did you think?

The most thrilling ride in the world!

As our dear reader, Steve, pointed out a few blogs ago, there are occasionally some funny colorations in Richie stories that make him appear to be wearing white boxers or a large diaper!

And sometimes blue is used strangely as in this Smurf man walking around.

And this one where Richie’s legs look like a Smurf wearing a diaper.

And now we have a fun story that would require most people to need a diaper, or “nappy” for our UK fans! Enjoy!

Richie and Bascomb meet the world’s most laid-back mom

There are some Richie stories that you read as a kid and you think, “Cool!”; but when you read them as an adult, you think, “WHAT????!!!!” This is one of those stories.

Imagine, if you will, you are a mom with a newborn. You have chosen to live on a mountain in the middle of nowhere, with no means of transportation, which works for you as you come from hardy stock and never get sick. And certainly a newborn would NEVER get sick.

But, alas, the baby wakes up sick! What to do? How will you get your baby to the doctor? You have no phone, so calling an ambulance or taxi is out of the question, hmm…..oh wait, here come two complete strangers, a man and a boy. Surely, they can give you and your baby a ride off the mountain. Or….better yet, they can just take your baby and you can go inside and take a well deserved nap!

Uh-oh! Their car; that you were just about to strap your newborn into, has just rolled off a cliff! But hey, everyone makes mistakes, these guys certainly look trustworthy, after all, one of them is wearing a tuxedo and the other is clearly some sort of doorman/jockey. So, when they decide to jump off a cliff with YOUR BABY using a piece of metal & some rope, that could not be a more logical option for getting your baby to the doctor.

And now, your work is done. No more sleep deprivation for you; get your nap on, girl! Oh wait, should you have told them your name, the baby’s name, or even your address? Feh, they seem like nice joes, I’m sure it will all work out! Zzzzzz….

I would say enjoy this story, but this woman doth throw me into a rage! Read on…

Do they even know where she lives? They had never been there before! Arg, this woman, what a nincompoop.

Richie and his magical movie camera save the party!

If you ever watched the film “Looker” in the 70’s, this story may be very familiar to you. The Rich family throw a fancy party and thank goodness Richie is there with his trusted camera! Read on….

IMG_0536 IMG_0537 IMG_0538 IMG_0539 IMG_0540 IMG_0541 IMG_0542 IMG_0543 IMG_0544 IMG_0545

Foiled again by a cute kid in riding pants. And that film processing machine, amazing!

Poor Richie, those parties do not look fun for a kid to attend. I might use some stop gas on myself so I could just be frozen until the party was over!  What did you think?
