The “poor little rich boy” first appeared in Harvey Comics in 1953 and has become an iconic comic character. Richie Rich was so popular that he was given his own Saturday morning cartoon. His character evolved into a charitable, good-willed adventurer with an endless budget.
Richie Rich was never a stand-alone cartoon in the 80s. He was always put together with other characters to make a variety show. He was put with Scooby Doo, Pac-man, The Little Rascals, and The Monchhichis.
