What is locked in the Rich Maximum Security Vault?

I am going a bit girlie with the story today, but it has some James Bond intrigue for the boys!

But, first I’ve run across two panels recently that made me laugh. First, we have the pots calling the kettle black in this Lotta cartoon…

Yes, SHE’S fat, but you two guys are clearly fitness instructors! Look in the mirror much, do we?

And, in case you missed it, here’s more on 70’s style plumpness:

And then, this little gem that in the real world would cause a huge male/female divide.

Mrs. Rich might be saying, “How interesting, Cadbury!”, but what she means is, “OH, SO YOU’RE SAYING I’M FAT!!!!” This just made me giggle because in real life Mrs. Rich would be glaring at Cadbury for days and he would have no clue why she was mad.

And now to an interesting little counterfeiting tale…

I don’t quite get why it would be a big deal if Mr. Rich bought the treasury. He seems like a delightful man to work for!

And now to find out what is in Mr. Rich’s Maximum Security Vault!

Aw, wittle Richie as a wittle baby. So cute! I don’t know why you need all the security measures though, no crook in the world would have any interest in baby Richie pics. And surely the sharks are robot sharks? Or perhaps one of the 600 Rich mansion employees are assigned as shark caretakers.

I think this story must have inspired the end of the Richie Rich movie. SPOILER ALERT: After the scene below, the bad guy discovers the vault is just filled with memories and keepsakes, no money.

Aaaah! I just watched the entire end of the movie again and remembered why I hate the end of this movie. The bad guy (Van Dough) and the Rich’s head of security try to murder the Richs multiple times, try to murder Richie and his friends and CADBURY multiple times, and shoot Richie in the chest at point blank range, again multiple times. Yet, at the end these two men are prisoners working at the Rich estate with only one Department of Corrections officer in charge of them. Why????!!! Why could not they show them in some jail in the middle of nowhere at the end? Why would you have two people who try to murder your child (and yourself) on your estate? There are two of them, they could easily overpower the one DOC officer who has a gun! AAAAAHHHH, I CAN’T TAKE IT!!!

What did you think of this story or of the movie?

Richie and Reggie search for Uncle Hyder’s fortune and Freckles and Peewee turn down the chance to be millionaires

Today’s story is one in a Richie genre that is repeated often through the years. A wealthy relative pops up out of nowhere and pits Richie and Reggie against each other to claim the relative’s excess fortune. Not that either kid needs more money and Richie never seems particularly interested in the fortune, but anytime he can compete, i.e. win against Reggie is a good time.

I love when Richie and Freckles throw things at the ghosts! But, the mace nearly murdering Freckles was too close for comfort for me.

I guess even though Freckles and Peewee turned down their share of the fortune, at least they have job security in that they can always live in and be the CEOs of their museum. And perhaps part of the museum can be turned into a fancy hotel because I don’t know who would want to travel to the island just to see a bunch of chubby angel statues.

In case you missed it, here’s another time F & P turned down easy money:

What did you think of Uncle Hyder’s treasure hunt?

Mr. Rich drinks Monster Cola and turns into a monster!

Today we have one of those stories with a very exciting cover, yet a story that doesn’t match your expectations at all.

But, first, let’s check out a story that seems very modern. Imagine the number of kids (and ADULTS!) currently at beautiful scenic views and historic locations all over the world, but they are only looking at their electronics. This one-pager is a precursor to this current problem, except that Mr. Rich and his friend seem fine with Richie ignoring the beauty of India. I am not fine with it, put your gadgets down Richie, and look around!!!

And now we have dear Richie beating cousin Reggie for the 800 zillionth time. Will Reggie ever learn?

And now on to the exciting-ish story of Monster Cola!

Has Mr. Rich ever thought of pulling a Laurence Olivier and saying, “Try acting” to his actors? I think that might be easier. And how hard is acting like a monster? You either have a mask on and no one sees your acting anyway or you lurch around and mumble. I would think he would be better off making “Drama pop” that helps actors get more dramatic and upset and cry in a serious movie.

I was expecting a much scarier story along the lines of lack-of-sleep-Mr. Rich. If you missed it, see below:

Methinks there was more than sugar in that Strawberry pop! What did you think?
