Richie finds a stowaway in the mansion plus some Richie Dollars and Census

WAA HAA! Dollars and Census! Send me back in a time machine and I could write some Richie cover puns. ūüôā

Today’s story is in my favorite Richie genre of….Richie explores the mansion! And the very end of the story is so fun and unexpected and clever, it is one I never forget.

I do have a beef with this story and it is in the very first panel. Really Regina? Your beloved son is lonely and you say, “Well, go play with your friends. And leave me be!”

NO, REGINA. The proper response should be, “Lonely? What am I, chopped liver? I’m just sitting around my duff doing nothing, your childhood is precious and fleeting, let’s go play!” Humpf. Even Reggie’s dad is a better parent in this tale. But, then it gets good, so off we go, apologies in advance for the poor¬†quality….

I love this end panel! All these random beatniks are just living in the mansion and no one has a clue! And probably stealing food from the kitchen each night like this tale: https://richierichcomicsfanclub.wordpress.com/2013/08/30/illogical-yet-interesting/

The year 2000 is so happy and beautiful and peaceful. And we lived in it! And I remember very little except buying a lot of Y2K emergency supplies for no reason.

And if you also love exploring the mansion, you might want to reread this awesome story: https://richierichcomicsfanclub.wordpress.com/2013/09/14/its-magic/

And now a bonus tale that I was saving for the year of the U.S. Census, but that will be in 2020 and by then we will all have every Richie Rich story on a microchip implanted in our brains, so why wait?

With all that staff you would think someone would have discovered the hippie poets in the west wing!

What did you think?

Irona stops a hijacking and whatcha doin’ on the moon?

Who doesn’t love Irona? She is the perfect robot servant; full of intelligence, strength, an ability to talk to other machines, and a sense of humor. She is loyal, fiercely protective of Richie, and can do pretty much anything. Here she is in all her glory, but it is cracking me up how this hijacker thinks she is an ugly old woman!

I do recall planes in the 70’s having an upstairs part on international flights where people could stand, walk around,¬†smoke and get alcohol at the bar. I never got to go as I was just a tot, but it certainly seemed glamorous! So, I am not going to be too shocked that a heavy piano would be on the plane, because who knows, maybe they had that up in that fancy area too!

Well, voila, look what I found! They did have pianos!

And, in case you were wondering what that sweet tune Irona was belting out is:

Have a great day, you homely dames!
