Is that a Richie Rich-thrown newspaper? AAAAHHH, I want it!

Today’s story is an interesting one and gives us some insight into celebrity culture. I recall Justin Bieber’s leftover breakfast was selling on ebay a few months ago, but what would you give for a newspaper hand-delivered by the Biebs? Well, probably nothing, but what if it was hand-delivered by Paul McCartney? That would be worth saving and displaying! Enjoy!

What did you think? I suppose this story won’t make much sense in few more years as no one will get the paper anymore!

Mrs. Rich gets her flirt on

When I was a wee one, I didn’t give Mrs. Rich much thought. But now that I am a woman myself, I find myself relating to her much more. Not in the jewelry sense, but if I were Regina, a stay at home mom with no housework to do, mother to the world’s most self-sufficient person who needs nothing from me, with a husband who is always traveling or working, and with friends consisting of random rich ladies whom I barely know; I would do as she and many a rich lady before her have done. Which is, hire a bunch of cute guys to work for you and spend your day flirting your brains out.

In this tale, Regina reaps all the benefits of innocent flirting involving a flush in the cheeks, a lot of giggling, and the feeling of being a young girl again! She also does well at employing three of the major tenants of man manipulation. She is a damsel in distress who needs to be saved, she is the “cool girl” up for anything, spontaneous and fun, and she suggests that another man can easily do the job.

No man can resist these ploys! And so, our dear Bascomb gets himself into some very odd situations, but it is a win-win in the end because she gets a youthful glow and he gets to feel like a hero. And best of all, we finally get to spend time with our old friend, Mrs. Van Lard!

Oh no, Dripson’s going to have a broken back! What did you think? It’s good to be rich!

And if you have time for more Richie fun, Occupy Richie Rich is putting up stories now too, so the Richie adventures never have to end! Adults only as the commentary is not safe for kids.

I found another story just like this one, but without all the flirting! Enjoy…

Old timey Mrs. Rich is not as hip and happening as 70’s Mrs. Rich!

Richie meets the Youth Maker and becomes a baby! Or does he?

A funny thing I’ve noticed lately while compiling these stories is that often a Richie cover will really catch your attention and you start getting excited about where the corresponding story may go. Sometimes it meets or exceeds your expectations, and other times you have no idea what the story and the cover have in common.

Here’s a little example: How cool does this cover look? What kind of story might go with this? It seems very modern and like Richie might see a bunch of bad things happening at once on TV and rush off with Cadbury to try and fix them was my thought.

Turns out it was just advertising this one pager:

Huh? Your multi-million dollar TV wall blows out, leaving you in a room of broken glass, but you’re smiling because it makes an R shape? Curious indeed.

And now to our story today; from this cover I was very excited to see baby Richie and his cute little cartoon tush, but the cover was a bit misleading. It’s still a fun story though, it just requires a bit of an expectation adjustment! Enjoy!

Hurumpf! No cute baby Richie at all. Strange. But, how cool is the tuxedo blimp/bow tie combo? I love it!

Gloria Glad becomes Gloria Mad!

Yiiish, our sweet little Gloria gets a serious bee in her bonnet in this tale! I would not want to be Richie, but it does give him a good indicator of what marriage to Gloria could be like. Methinks the lady doth protest too much though, most gals would be more than happy to have such pampering from a suitor! Brace yourself for Gloria’s wrath and read on…

Run for the hills, Richie! Or actually you could have just walked back about 10 steps to Gloria’s house and saved yourself all that phone hassle, but it’s probably better not to be yelled at in person. What do you think of this version of Gloria?

Cadbury’s secret weakness, and yes, it’s what you assumed…

Today my cutie pie Cadbury reveals his secret weakness! And it’s one that is extremely fitting for him! Enjoy and check out Richie’s gigantic remote control!

I cannot stop laughing at this frame!

Oh my, I am going to have to kick someone jauntily tomorrow in a Cadbury-like fashion!

Is your weakness chocolate?
