Time for more Dollar stories! A few of today’s stories (1, 4, 5) are especially meaningful for me because they come from one of my original four Richie digests that I read nine million times as a kid. All of these stories are “classic” Richie stories to me and it’s great to read them as an adult as there was a lot I didn’t grasp as a kid! For more on my classics, check out these stories:
But, first to this awesome one-pager with a very aptly named kid!
Look at Orville trying to gaslight poor Richie. You’re the fibber, not dear Richie!
And now to a most amazing invention, I have been waiting all my life for this, I would love to see my dreams!
Aw, they are so cute! I wonder if Dollar’s dream human voice is normal or like a Scooby Doo type voice?
Speaking of cute, if this next story isn’t in the dictionary under cute, I don’t know what is!
“He’ll be in down in a moment, Mr. Crook.” Such politeness! Now I see why everyone tries to steal from them, such a refined and genial experience, a pleasure to rob from!
And now we go to one of our favorite pairs of nemeses (had to look up the plural of nemesis), Chef Pierre and Dollar!
Dollar with a food belly always cracks me up! And now, the whole mansion is empty for no apparent reason, but thank goodness for Dollar!
I love Richie and his dad saying, “Blah blah”. I say that all the time, now I know why!
I know I am a broken record, but how do all 600 servants take off the same day???? And why is the front door wide open?? And where are the estate police? How did they not see these crooks driving up???? Although really if the vault was robbed, woopdeedoo. It would be like if Jeff Bezos was robbed of a penny. It’s not like there aren’t one zillion other vaults filled to the brim just laying around rotting. Or buried in Gloria’s yard!
And now for the featured performance, Dollar gets braces! As a kid reading this I assumed dogs getting braces was a normal thing, but I have yet to see a real dog with braces. Get your sunglasses on and prepare for this fun story!
Interesting that Richie became a redhead at the end, just like his son:
Speaking of redheads, Nurse Jenny appears to be moonlighting at the horsodontics office. Braces off in two weeks! Wouldn’t that be amazing!
UPDATE: Have done some research and dog braces is a thing! As is the quick turnaround!
What did you think of these Dollar stories?
More great Dollar stories, thanks!
Also, is that Cadbury moonlighting as a veterinarian?
I didn’t even notice that! You’re so right! It’s Cadbury with a white mustache!
Always great to come across a Richie story that I remember from this era, thanks for bringing back the memory of Dollar’s braces!
Happy to help! 😁
A veterinary orthodontist, interesting. Oh and speaking of Nurse Jenny, has there ever been an incident where Richie got seriously injured and she helped him recover?
Not that I recall. Taking his temperature is the most nursing I’ve seen.
I heard from the grapevine that when Richie was younger, he had the chickenpox and Nurse Jenny was a big help to him.
