comics in 1953.
Richie Rich was called The Poor Little Rich Boy and rich
he was. Richie had everything money could buy and quite a bit
that it couldn't. He and his parents, Richard and Regina Rich,
lived in a massive mansion with technological wonders and
furnishings and trappings of unbelievable excess. Richie
and his family employed a butler named Cadbury, the proper
English butler. Richie's girlfriend was Gloria Glad and his
general nemesis was his snobby cousin Reggie Van Dough.
Richie Rich and his supporting cast were the stars of numerous
comic titles over the years. He was also the star of his own
Saturday morning cartoon in the early 80's. Richie Rich
was also the subject of a live action movie in 1994 starring
the poster child for spoiled little rich kids, Macaulay Culkin.
