Richie and Casper meet the Good-Bye Man! (aka The one with the underground people)

I received a special request for this very interesting tale, it provides a lot of food for thought! Let’s begin with Irona cleaning up the Rich mansion for a special visitor, and thank goodness because the mansion is always such a pigsty. 🙂

Oh my, so much to discuss! This is one of those issues with a very terrifying cover, The Goodbye Man kidnaps Richie! But, then he turns out to be just a goofy, non-scary robot.

And the Riches are strangely accessible; just clank your way onto the estate and they leave you and an unguarded Richie all alone. And you can just pick up any pay phone and call Richard Rich who will pick up the phone himself! I may call Richard Branson right now and see if this whole easy dialing up of rich people is true.

A time machine? Of course I have one! Who doesn’t?

And now to the really thought provoking stuff. How are these underground people conceived? Is it like Brave New World and they’re all made in factories? If yes, for what purpose? If I’m a robot, why would I keep making new humans in a lab that I have to take care of? Why not let them just die off?

What TV shows are they watching? Are there some humans that get to leave their little rabbit hole houses, have proper jobs and act? Or do they just watch old series from 500 years prior? Or perhaps they watch robot acted/directed/produced shows about people sitting around in underground rooms eating Soylent Green.

Why do they need pills to help them sleep? They have nowhere to be, surely their bodies would just sleep when they need to.

And, yes, let’s let this random human tell us that we need to take control of our world. When we have absolutely no skills and no knowledge on how to do anything! We haven’t even had to work with another human or speak to another human in our lives! What could go wrong with creating a new society? I have a feeling these people will all starve to death in a matter of hours. Or annoy each other in a matter of minutes and violence will ensue.

In good news, Richie escapes and heads for home! What did you think of this craaaazy story?

The sad tale of when an amnesia ray causes Richie to get yelled at by his parents

One of the great things about Richie stories is the loving relationship he has with his parents. One does wonder why the Riches only had one child with all their wealth and hundreds of staff, but perhaps they foresaw the wrangling and fighting that always accompanies extremely rich siblings running the family empire so they figured this was best.

In this story though, we see the scary side of Richard. I remember hating this story when I was young because he SCREAMS at poor Richie. Even Cadbury is a jerk. But, it is all because they have amnesia, so read on to discover how this strangeness occured…

In other news, it is interesting that not only does the ray cause Amnesia, but the Memory ray also turns your hair from orange to blonde!

How weird was it to see Cadbury sticking his tongue out? Such a rapscallion! But, we have seen him ill-behaved before:
