What ho, old bean, time for a bit of Cadbury!

How I do love Cadbury, and it’s high time for more of everyone’s favorite butler!

Where do these people work that they all just pile in when they see a tuxedoed man appear? And why doesn’t Joe just hire a cook?

And now, we meet a new character…or do we?

IMG_1076 IMG_1077 IMG_1078 IMG_1079 IMG_1080

Oh Cadbury! Is there anything you can’t do? And he’s even dreamier with a beard….

We need more Cadburys in this world! Is Cadbury your favorite?

In case you missed it, there is more Cadbury here:

And as a fun anniversary treat, I found these Richie Rich trivia questions. Give it a try and see how you do! Answers are posted at the bottom, as well as the questions again so you don’t have to keep scrolling up.

And finally, today we have a very classic Richie story from Jackpots #23. The Rich family lose all their money and must start over from scratch. But, they approach the situation with love, humor, and a pull-yourself-up-by-your-bootstraps attitude that is very inspiring! Enjoy!

Now, obviously there are many leaps in logic here (who would throw out cable worth that much?) and we could spend all day pointing them out, but I must ask; they couldn’t go to the Van Doughs? Or Aunt Novoo Rich? They wouldn’t be imposing because there are thousands of rooms in those mansions. No, they couldn’t, the story wouldn’t have worked, stop looking for logic, it’s a comic, you’re right, I agree. 🙂

And I could point out that enough time has elapsed for Rich and Sons to have a factory, yet Regina is still wearing the same dress. But, I like to think it is a custom, handmade, silk dress and she can’t afford another one of those yet, so better to wear it non-stop than a ratty dress from the five and dime.

I love how Richard knows Bean Belly from the War! WWI we assume? Do you remember them ever mentioning Richard’s wartime service before? I don’t!

And my lovely Cadbury stays with them to the end, sleeping on a chair instead of going back to his apartment. Although, he does live in the servant’s quarters in most Richie stories, but sometimes they show his secret life outside of the mansion. It’s sweet how the men sleep in chairs while giving Richie and Regina the crates and grotty sheets to sleep on. Nothing looks very comfortable, but it’s the thought that counts.

What a great family, they get out there, pound the pavement, start a new company, even Regina doesn’t act like a ditz and knocks a bunch of bad guys out. I am so impressed with the Riches in this story! And Richard is even kind to that jerk Uriah Mound; I guess they had already used Uriah Heap in the below story and didn’t want to use it twice:  www.richierichcomicsfanclub.wordpress.com/tag/uriah-heap/ 

I don’t see the appeal of taking all of Richard Rich’s assets. There are just too much. Vaults are exploding everywhere, the money is pouring in too fast to ever spend. I would have just taken over an extra mansion/playhouse and a few vaults on the sly and no one would ever notice. Did you remember this story?

And just a reminder, if there is a certain story or type of story that you would like to see on here, comment below or email me at gloriagladrich2@yahoo.com.

And now, for the quiz results:

2014-08-01 23.30.202014-08-01 23.30.33

How did you do? Did you know number 9? I had no idea! And I am suspect of 18. Shouldn’t the answer be Richville? I missed 9, 14, 15, 18, 19, & 20. But, I mostly read digests so the names of actual Richie comics are not something I know well. Hope you had fun, thank you for being a fan club member and Happy Anniversary!

The Rich endless bowl of ice cream and Cadbury goes wild!

Today we have a very 70’s story about the moms of the world happily feeding their children a bowl of endless chemicals. This would not fly at today’s organic dinner time!

But first, let’s see what Cadbury gets up to when no one is around to watch!

IMG_0921 IMG_0922

He is so cute!

And now, we go back to a simpler time when big business was trusted and we never thought about what packaged goods we ate!

2014-08-01 23.36.48 2014-08-01 23.36.51 2014-08-01 23.36.55 2014-08-01 23.36.58 2014-08-01 23.37.01

I wonder what the percentages are on how many people really melted it down? To never buy ice cream again would be quite cost effective. But, who knows what diseases you will get from eating this.

It’s odd that the ice cream vendors were so jolly while giving out the endless ice cream. It would destroy their livelihood! And curious that Nurse Jenny is more in the know than Richard.

What did you think? Hungry for ice cream?

Richie is kidnapped by the Condor! It’s not actually as scary as you think.

Sometimes Richie villains are comical like the Onion, and sometimes they are quite terrifying like the Condor. In this story, however, the Condor acts like a complete moron and may as well be a circus clown! It’s one thing to fall for the rollarskate prank once, but twice? Oh, Condor! (laugh silently and jiggle your shoulders up and down like it’s the end of a Superfriends cartoon).  Enjoy!

Oh Condor, you doofus! And wow, those Harvey characters sure know how to have a good time, that party is still going strong!

2014-06-23 14.18.31

Look at Freckles, chatting up Lotta, who knows what romance may have blossomed this night?

What do you think of the Condor? Were you somewhat embarrassed that your younger self found him scary? I was!

Richie gets a scary new playhouse and four stories to read!

Today is a good day if you are relaxing and in the mood for Richie stories! I found another father/son bonding story and added it to a previous post. Click below to check out the new second story:

where Mykal has a new post with not one, but TWO Richie stories!

And now, to our fourth story of the day. This story scared the bejeebers out of me when I was little. But, I feel it is time to face my fears! Enjoy!

IMG_0819 IMG_0820 IMG_0821 IMG_0822 IMG_0823

My younger self thought that Mr. Rich was dead and that his face had been removed and worn by a creepy monster (and this was years before the movie Face/Off!). I was so scared that I never finished the story to discover it was all in fun!

I still don’t understand why Cadbury has a Mr. Rich mask though. Was he trying to act like Mr. Rich turned into a monster? Why not just be a generic monster? How does one wear two masks? Seems awfully sweaty.

Ah, how amazing to build playhouses you can have adventures in everyday, what a cool life! What did you think?

Richie desperately needs a double “Z” machine screw for his train set!

Happy April! As you probably know, because I repeat it ad nauseum; my favorite stories are Richie exploring the house stories. So, let’s brighten your day with a cute one pager!

IMG_0592

I hope they leave snacks and water in every room or there will be many dead bodies accumulating over the years!

And one more for good measure…

IMG_0574 IMG_0575

What a house!

And now, onto the main event. Richie needs a Z screw, because if his train set isn’t running, what on earth will he do with his friends? They certainly couldn’t swim, race cars, fly a plane, climb Mount Richie, watch a movie on a giant screen, play outside, count money….

IMG_0593 IMG_0594 IMG_0595 IMG_0596 IMG_0597

D’oh! Richard Rich, you spendthrift!

One can only hope that the giant transformer they took the Z screw from is not part of the machinery necessary for making a Z screw or this will really be a cluster.

I feel bad for my love, Cadbury. It’s such a good feeling to be organized and on top of things, like having a bandaid in your purse when someone needs one or a mint, but to have every single screw in the world, but the VERY ONE RICHIE NEEDS….oh…it is truly tragic. My poor chap, Cadbury, he tried so hard. Let’s give him a virtual hug.

 

 

Oh happy day, Richie explores the Rich mansion!

I’m sure you never get tired of hearing how Richie exploring the mansion stories are my favorites! So, I shall repeat it many more times… 🙂

Today we have a one pager, a two pager, and a five pager of house hijinks for your enjoyment! Imagine having such exciting adventures and never having to leave home. Yippee!

IMG_0613

IMG_0614 IMG_0615

IMG_0640 IMG_0641 IMG_0643 IMG_0644 IMG_0645

What an amazing house! Are exploring the mansion stories your faves too?

And, in case you missed it, here’s another fun story of exploring the house:

Cadbury’s secret weakness, and yes, it’s what you assumed…

Today my cutie pie Cadbury reveals his secret weakness! And it’s one that is extremely fitting for him! Enjoy and check out Richie’s gigantic remote control!

IMG_0582 IMG_0583 IMG_0584 IMG_0585 IMG_0586

I cannot stop laughing at this frame!

IMG_0586

Oh my, I am going to have to kick someone jauntily tomorrow in a Cadbury-like fashion!

Is your weakness chocolate?

A ghostly tale for Halloween!

Today, our beloved Rich family moves into a haunted house and hijinks abound! Happy Happy Halloween!

IMG_0510 IMG_0511 IMG_0512 IMG_0513 IMG_0514 IMG_0515 IMG_0516 IMG_0517 IMG_0518 IMG_0519

Hee hee, everyone floats into Cadbury’s arms! I think this is the house for me!

I love that furniture is flying everywhere and Richie says he is just off to run an errand. No biggie, Mom, Dad, Cadbury, you guys just keep flying around the room, I have some dry cleaning to pick up. 🙂    Happppppppy Halllllloween!

Cadbury discovers the fountain of youth and loses his clothes again

Wow, what a week it has been in Richieblogland! If you didn’t read the comments on the last post (The funniest Richie Rich story ever), you must! I am still dancing on air!

As I explained to my non Richie-loving friends; it’s like having Tom Cruise comment on your Tom Cruise blog. Or in my case, it’s basically Richie Rich himself commenting! So, as I am still babbling and wandering around in a daze, I thought I would bring you a fun little Cadbury tale where his shirt goes bye-bye and he goes goo-goo! Enjoy!

IMG_6796 IMG_6797 IMG_6798 IMG_6799 IMG_6800 IMG_6801 IMG_6802 IMG_6803 IMG_6804 IMG_6805

I think that Cadbury is the only person on the planet who uses the word “Deucedly”. Have you ever used it in a sentence?
