Richie becomes a movie mogul and hijinks ensue!

This is a very interesting story that definitely veers off the stereotypical Richie path. Everyone other than Reggie acts slightly different than usual which is fun to see. Enjoy!

Wow! Who knew Freckles could be so tough? He usually just stands around quite smiley and dopey. Go Freckles! And it’s strange to see him having individual thoughts, ignoring what Richie is trying to do in his quest to beat up Reggie. Usually Richie can say, “Let’s jump off this mountain into a pile of money” and Freckles is a yes man all the way. Maybe the lack of having to look out for his little brother in this story has given him some backbone.

Reggie’s outfit really makes me laugh. He is 10? and dressed like Thurston Howell the third.

The crooks were quite strange too, the one is dressed like a Hollywood agent and the other has a Native American thing going on, but they are both so pleasant. No guns? The kids are just going to hang out and then go home at their leisure and not report you to the estate police? You had to chose the one occupied playhouse of the 100s on the estate? Anyone can casually stroll onto the estate at any time and hole up in a playhouse? Sure, why not! I’m surprised there weren’t some hijinks where they had a gun, but accidently switched it with the onion juice gun and hilarity ensued. But, again, this was not your typical Richie story.

In odd news, I was just double-checking Freckles’ last name as I thought it was “Friendly” and came across this:

Have you ever heard of that being Freckles’ last name? It seems only Comic Vine calls him that. Curious!

What did you think of the story?

    It’s actually really funny to see how our perception of what it takes to be “rich” is ($100,000), and exactly how much $100,000 is worth today.

    Modern dialogue:

    Gus: Well, Hooks, we got $100,000 from the bank job! We’re rich!
    Hooks: Good! Now we can put down a 9% down payment for that 2 bedroom, 1 bath house in San Francisco!
    Gus: Ah, San Francisco! They have a hipster crowd, and we’ll blend right in with our groovy mod togs!
