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?
