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! And if you like adults turning into babies, click here:
Update: Found a baby Richie pic, it’s not the one I was searching for, I swear there’s a whole baby Richie story somewhere, but this story cheated us of cute baby Richie pics so here you go:

And here is another cute one:
This picture comes from here:
What a cutie!
I actually read an episode that focused on Richie’s babyhood. He was so cute as a baby.
Yes, I remember that too, he was playing with diamonds! I need to find that story.
There was also a written story in which Mr. and Mrs. Rich are taking a walk in the mansion and they come upon Richie’s nursery from when he was a baby. It triggers all kinds of fond memories for them. It put a smile on my face, tears in my eyes and a glow in my heart. At the end, when Richie enters and joins his parents, I couldn’t help but feel that up till then he might have come in early and did some eavesdropping while his parents were reminiscing. He probably had the same happy feelings as them, but he didn’t want to interrupt until the appropriate moment. It was so beautiful.
