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?

    Heh! I love it 🙂 I remember another story, I think it was called “Gloria’s Ordeal”–she gets so angry at one point, they even had her cursing in one of the frames if I recall!

    Gloria is PMSing. xD

    Gloria simply doesn’t realize she’s Richie’s beard. Richie has to give her lots of gifts because he needs to publicly display that he is attracted to girls since he actually isn’t, and is deep in the the closet because his arch-conservative father Richard Rich would have him sent away for conversion therapy if he found out about Richie’s orientation. Gloria needs to understand that she’s providing a service and deserves the compensation.

    What if Reggie Van Dough sends Gloria a lot of expensive gifts saying it’s from Richie Rich? (But later Gloria finds out it was really from Reggie)

    • Oooh, that would make her even madder! There is a similar story to that in one of the newer reboot issues. I will look for it and try to post soon.

        I’ll bet when she finds out, she’ll even tell his dad that Reggie’s responsible. Reggie’s dad will hide in an empty gift box pretending to be a gift for Gloria (with a label “from Richie Rich”) and have Reggie be the first look inside that present. What do you think of that?

        I just noticed there is a story to that, but that’s in Little Lotta #113.

    I can’t say that I blame Gloria. There are just too many flowers, she could have her own giant garden.

    I think that this was just a phase. Though not shown, clearly Gloria eventually understood what was really happening and made up with Richie. That is the way it always works.

      You are correct. I am ashamed to say that when I was a kid in the late 70s I read every Richie Rich comic in existence at that time. At first Gloria is suspicious and wary of Richie, thinking he is a spoiled rich kid who is out to use his wealth to impress her. Later she witnesses Richie being generous to people without being aware she is watching, so she surmises that he doesn’t throw his money around to impress her after all, and is in fact a genuinely generous person. Keep in mind that this is fiction!
