See Dollar’s dreams, his fine wardrobe, pigging out and getting braces!

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!

IMG_0043IMG_0044IMG_0045IMG_0046IMG_0047

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!

IMG_1511IMG_1512IMG_1513IMG_1514IMG_1515

“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!

IMG_1516IMG_1517IMG_1518IMG_1519IMG_1520

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!

IMG_0031IMG_0032IMG_0033IMG_0035IMG_0036

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!

IMG_1526IMG_1527IMG_1528IMG_1529IMG_1530IMG_1531IMG_1532IMG_1533IMG_1534IMG_1535IMG_1536

Interesting that Richie became a redhead at the end, just like his son:

https://richierichcomicsfanclub.wordpress.com/2014/01/26/richie-and-gloria-get-married-and-have-a-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?

Cadbury attends the Butler’s convention and Richie gets a forcefield

Whoops! I have been neglecting this little blog, time to get my Richie hat back on!

IMG_1993.jpg

Gadzooks, I’m happy when I find an old $5 in my jeans!

img_1973-1img_1974-1

This doctor knew where his bread was buttered, no “lose some weight, eat better, exercise more”.

This next story is from the defunct Richie Rich app and is one of the many stories where Cadbury hangs out with other butlers. They never seem to mind that he wins every butler contest!

2016-09-05-16-33-222016-09-05-16-33-252016-09-05-16-33-282016-09-05-16-33-322016-09-05-16-33-352016-09-05-16-33-39

Wow, Mrs. Rich made some tarts all on her own? That is more shocking than Cadbury standing on his head unassisted! In interesting news, one can still employee a butler, I have never seen one in real life!

What an amazing invention! You could strap it on your child or even your baby and never worry about them getting hurt! Maybe this woman had a prototype and that’s why she wasn’t worried about sending her baby off a cliff with a cardboard.

Happy Holidays!

 

 

The Rich mansion gets a good clean and Peewee thwarts some crooks

The below one-pager was a request from a fan club member and I’m so glad a friend was able to find it. Richie Rich comics do more than just entertain us, they teach us too! The only odd thing is that the final number is wrong, I did the calculations and thought I just messed up, but this blog confirms my numbers.

http://www.al6400.com/blog/a-penny-doubled-everyday/

Either way, great story!

Here’s the original version, the above is from the recolored and digitized 2012 GEMS.

Ha! So there, stupid Reggie!

And now, another memorable one-pager starring Richard Nixon!

2016-05-12 08.27.51.jpg

I can’t imagine how much that check is for! I’m surprised all the zeros can even fit on the check!

Now to a cute story about Richie’s loyal friends and how they seem to be just fine with poverty. And leaving little kids at home alone who are allowed to answer the door.

Oh Freckles, if only you knew what a genius he was! If you like stories where the Friendly family chooses not to accept easy wealth, check this out:

And the bottom story here:

Now, for a very fun story of a man who likes to clean and the butler who wishes he would bugger off!2016-05-08 20.31.172016-05-08 20.31.222016-05-08 20.31.372016-05-08 20.32.122016-05-08 20.32.35

Cadbury wearing sunglasses! That’s a sight you never see! And the mine is so white, even Richie’s shorts join in the fun.

I would think that every time you mine some coal, it would make everything black again so this would be a never ending battle to keep the cave white. But, I will admit, I really like to clean too, so I get it.

Did you like these stories?

 

Cadbury can do anything and meet Cadbury’s family!

Whoops, I meant to post these Cadbury stories in June and just noticed that I didn’t so we’ll have two for the price of one blogs today.

First, we have a one-pager of a familiar scenario, Gloria asks Richie NOT to spend money and be extravagant, but puh-leeze girl, you know he can’t do that!2016-02-12 16.08.41.jpg

Now to my love Cadbury, I hope you love him too as I post about him quite a lot! This man can do it all! Except find an appropriate place to sit, although the man never gets to sit down so I’m not surprised he lacks sitting skills. Enjoy!

2016-02-12 16.10.542016-02-12 16.10.572016-02-12 16.11.012016-02-12 16.11.042016-02-12 16.11.08

And now a wonderful story from our dear friend, Larry T, who pulls stories I’ve never seen out of hat! Haven’t you always felt a bit bad for Cadbury, having no family or friends nearby that we see? It turns out he has a family! And they have just moved to town to stand around with excellent posture and say “rawther” and “deucedly” a lot.

I love how the Riches never look down on Cadbury, even though he is in theory “below their station”. They love him, admire him, take his advice and emulate him! And if you like Richie behaving like Cadbury, see the one pager at the top of this link:

100th post! Mr. Rich says no to yes men and Prof. Keenbean invents a machine that invents anything!

This first story is very cute and brings up a problem that has always affected rich people. It’s the fact that anyone on your payroll is going to tell you what you want to hear because otherwise, you might fire them and then they don’t get paid! Honest opinions are hard to come by, but Mr. Rich finds a way…

2015-09-03 21.54.402015-09-03 21.55.022015-09-03 21.55.232015-09-03 21.55.492015-09-03 21.56.16

Yiish! Richie better watch his back, Smedley will be out for revenge! I’m on board with the barber, shoe shine guy, and newspaper vendor being a bit palsy with Mr. Rich, but the elevator operator? Surely he is employed by Mr. Rich as Richard owns every building. Either way, I’m glad Mr. Rich got rid of these shysters except when needing a shoe shine. But, once these commoners get a taste of Board of Director salaries, they may become yes men too.

And now to a rather shocking development, in the two years I’ve done this blog, I am quite sure that I have yet to post a Prof. Keenbean story!! What kind of self-respecting Richie Rich blog doesn’t have some Keenbean? So, I make up for that with the ultimate invention, an invention that invents other inventions! Read on…

2015-10-04 22.17.422015-10-04 22.17.482015-10-04 22.17.512015-10-04 22.17.542015-10-04 22.17.57

Well, no need to destroy it! It could have made an invention that creates world peace! Do you love Keenbean stories and if yes, what were some of your favorite inventions?

Here are some non-Keenbean invention stories, in case you missed them!

Happy New Year and Richie enters a very strange dream machine with Casper

richie

HAPPY NEW YEAR! Hope everyone’s year is off to a great start and hope you all got to sleep in because your brain will need to work overtime to follow along with this wacky story!

Well. Indeed. What to say about this story, I have no idea. It was interesting, I’ll give it that! And I like supermodel Regina’s look, but do not like stupid Mayda slapping my Cadbury.

And mean Mr. Rich, he always scares me, even as an adult. YIIISH!

2015-12-15 18.36.24

And here is the sun that our dear fan club member Steve remembered from the olden days. It is quite beautiful!

2015-12-15 18.41.02

It’s funny; the tiny, artistic details we remember from these Richie stories that we first read so long ago. Like Stevie Strange’s whiskers that stayed with me for most of my life!

https://richierichcomicsfanclub.wordpress.com/2013/09/30/mr-rich-for-a-day-and-i-discover-what-whiskers-are/

All in all, I am quite happy no one has invented a machine like this because your dreams should be just for you! Were anyone else to see them, they would think you were a psychopath! What did you think of this acid trip 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…

2015-08-13 16.40.05 2015-08-13 16.40.13 2015-08-13 16.40.16 2015-08-13 16.40.19 2015-08-13 16.40.22 2015-08-13 16.40.30 2015-08-13 16.40.34 2015-08-13 16.40.38 2015-08-13 16.40.41 2015-08-13 16.40.44

Oh, how I hate this frame!!!

2015-08-13 16.40.22

WAAA! Poor Richie!

https://richierichcomicsfanclub.wordpress.com/2013/08/31/grumpy-old-school-richard-rich/

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:

What did you think of this frightening tale?

 

 

 

Mr. Rich drinks Monster Cola and turns into a monster!

Today we have one of those stories with a very exciting cover, yet a story that doesn’t match your expectations at all.

rr_profits_1

But, first, let’s check out a story that seems very modern. Imagine the number of kids (and ADULTS!) currently at beautiful scenic views and historic locations all over the world, but they are only looking at their electronics. This one-pager is a precursor to this current problem, except that Mr. Rich and his friend seem fine with Richie ignoring the beauty of India. I am not fine with it, put your gadgets down Richie, and look around!!!

IMG_0946

And now we have dear Richie beating cousin Reggie for the 800 zillionth time. Will Reggie ever learn?

IMG_0944

And now on to the exciting-ish story of Monster Cola!

2014-09-30 20.15.43 2014-09-30 20.16.17 2014-09-30 20.17.01 2014-09-30 20.17.20 2014-09-30 20.17.49

Has Mr. Rich ever thought of pulling a Laurence Olivier and saying, “Try acting” to his actors? I think that might be easier. And how hard is acting like a monster? You either have a mask on and no one sees your acting anyway or you lurch around and mumble. I would think he would be better off making “Drama pop” that helps actors get more dramatic and upset and cry in a serious movie.

I was expecting a much scarier story along the lines of lack-of-sleep-Mr. Rich. If you missed it, see below:

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.

2014-08-01 23.30.20

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!

brendanschoolpic3brendanschoolpic3-1 brendanschoolpic3-2 brendanschoolpic3-3 brendanschoolpic3-4 brendanschoolpic3-7brendanschoolpic3-6  brendanschoolpic3-8 brendanschoolpic3-9 brendanschoolpic3-10 brendanschoolpic3-11 brendanschoolpic3-12 brendanschoolpic3-13 brendanschoolpic3-14 brendanschoolpic3-15

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!

Mrs. Rich tries not to show off her wealth? What in the world?

This is a very weird little tale where Regina actually seems to get how ostentatious her jewelry obsession is. But, first, let’s remember how Mrs. Rich usually acts…

IMG_0608

And now, prepare for a trip to opposite land!

IMG_0691 IMG_0692 IMG_0693 IMG_0694 IMG_0695

She does look much thinner in normal women’s clothes, she doesn’t even need to reduce! And look at Richie in normal kid clothes!

I found another one pager about the Smellevision, check it out at the end of the Smellevision story:

https://richierichcomicsfanclub.wordpress.com/2014/07/22/richie-rich-and-the-smellevision-set/

The next blog post will be our one year anniversary of RRCFC so prepare for fun! But, for now, you must wait till the 27th…….. 🙂
