More info

Richard "Richie" Rich, Jr. (often stylized as Ri¢hie Ri¢h)[1][2][3] is a fictional character in the Harvey Comics universe. He debuted in Little Dot #1, cover-dated September 1953, and was created by Alfred Harvey and Warren Kremer. Dubbed "the poor little rich boy," Richie is the only child of fantastically wealthy parents and is the world's richest kid.

Cover of Richie Rich No. 254 (Jan. 1991), the final issue of the flagship series.
 

Despite any negative stereotypes associated with his incredible wealth, Richie Rich is portrayed as kind and charitable. (In fact, his moniker is "the poor little rich boy.") He lives in an expensive mansion and owns at least two of everything money can buy. Richie appears to be around seven to ten years old and wears a waistcoat, a white shirt with an Eton collar (which is obscured by a giant red bow tie), and blue shorts. He occasionally attends school in his hometown of Richville.

Supporting characters

Rich family

  • Mr. Richard Rich Sr. - Richie's father; an industrialist (first appearance Little Dot #3)
  • Mrs. Regina Rich - Richie's mother (first appearance Little Dot #1)
  • Aunt Noovo Rich (a pun on the French term nouveau riche) - Richie's wealthy but very eccentric aunt who is crazy about posting signs; has a tendency to show off her wealth. She is Mr. Rich's sister.
  • Aunt Mintley - Oft-bewildered aristocrat.
  • Aunt Cleo — animal lover
  • Uncle Worry - Richie's uncle, former coach of a professional football team known for its long losing streak
  • Dollar - Rich family dog, a "Dollarmatian" (like a Dalmatian, but with dollar signs instead of spots)


Van Dough family

  • Reginald "Reggie" Van Dough Jr. - Richie's mean cousin, known for playing constant pranks on everyone, most notably Richie and his family, which causes his father to punish him. Treats his servants shabbily (often by calling them "peasant," which causes them to call him "monster", but they swiftly correct themselves and call him Master). (first appearance Little Dot #2)
  • Reginald Van Dough Sr. - Reggie's father, often angered with Reggie's non-stop pranks, and often punishes him for them.
  • Vanessa Van Dough - Reggie's mother; not as quick to punish Reggie for his pranks, but she doesn't tolerate Reggie's unabashed cruelty either. It is never clearly determined if Vanessa is related to Richie's mother or his father.
  • Penny Van Dough - Reggie's baby sister, she talks only in "baby talk." The curl on her head is shaped like a dollar sign.


Richie's friends

  • Gloria Glad - Richie's redhead girlfriend, notorious for her regular refusal of the many luxurious gifts Richie offers.
  • Mayda Munny - Richie's snobby wannabe-girlfriend, who never wins his attentions. Immensely jealous of Gloria, and often angry when her plans to snare Richie's attention backfire on her. Like Reggie, Mayda is snobbish and addresses those beneath her as "peasant".
  • Freckles and Pee-Wee Friendly - Richie's poor but most-prized friends (first appearance Little Dot #2)
  • Jackie Jokers - A young comedian and all-around entertainer with a flair for the vaudevillian.


Rich employees

  • Herbert Arthur Runcible Cadbury - The Riches' butler who attends to the Rich estate. British born, Cadbury gives the image of propriety and servility. When need demands, however, he becomes a tough, gun-toting man of action.
  • Irona - The Riches' robot maid and Richie's bodyguard
  • Bascomb - The Riches' chauffeur
  • Chef Pierre - The Riches' chef extraordinaire
  • Mr. Cheepers - Mr. Rich's accountant
  • Mr. Woody - The incompetent Rich estate carpenter whose work falls apart with a light touch
  • Nurse Jenny - The Rich family nurse; was Richie's nanny when he was a baby
  • Professor Keenbean - The head of the Rich research and development department and Richie's personal tutor
  • Professor Mindblow - A worker at the research and development department.


Villains

  • The Onion - A recurring villain with horrible onion-powered breath capable of knocking victims unconscious with a trademark "hashoo!"
  • Dr. Blemish - A recurring villain, an evil genius scientist and arch-nemesis of Prof. Keenbean.
  • Dr. N-R-Gee - A recurring villain with the distinguishing feature of a huge red light bulb for a head, caused when scientist Phil Lament (a pun referring to a light bulb's "filament") suffered an electrical accident in his lab.
  • The Condor - A billionaire mastermind with his own terrorist army, and the Rich Family's worst enemy, whose only desire is to take over Mr. Rich's empire.
