Richie Rich is an animated television series produced by Hanna-Barbera Productions that aired on ABC from 1980 to 1984 and again in 1988 as part of the weekend/weekday programming block The Funtastic World of Hanna-Barbera, Based upon Harvey Comics' popular Richie Rich comic book characters, the series shared time slots with Scooby-Doo and Scrappy-Doo, The Little Rascals, and Pac-Man over its original broadcast run. The other most visible character was Richie's dog, the appropriately named Dollar. The show airs occasionally on Boomerang; Boomerang's reruns feature the theme from The Richie Rich/Scooby-Doo Show and Scrappy Too! over the closing credits.


This show details the various adventures of Richie Rich, his family, and his friends.


Richie Rich's adventures are sorted into different segments:

  • Richie Rich Riches – This segment deals with threats to the Rich family or more specifically Richie.
  • Richie Rich Treasure Chest – Segments that revolve around Dollar and/or Cadbury.
  • Richie Rich Gems – Short segments for humor like the Wing Dings of Dastardly and Muttley in their Flying Machines.
  • Richie Rich Zillion Dollar Adventures – This segment deals with Richie Rich and his friends fighting master criminals, aliens, and other threats to the world.

Adaptation changes[edit]

The animated series took a number of liberties from the original comics:

  • Richie is depicted as slightly older, inconsistently voiced as a child between 10 and 13, and wears a red sweater with a large "R" on the front as well as long trousers. In the comics, he wears a black suit with a red bow tie and short pants.
  • Gloria is shown as the same age as Richie and wears a white long-sleeved blouse, purple sweater or sweater vest and purple mini skirt.
  • Dollar is more anthropomorphized with Walter Mitty-like fantasies.
  • Irona The Robot Maid is given a greater presence in the series with additional duties as Richie's personal bodyguard as seen in the "Zillion Dollar Adventures" segments. To fulfill that role, Irona can convert her body into various alternative modes as necessary. For instance, the moment she receives a summons from Richie, she would change her body into a jet plane mode and immediately fly to the boy.


# Plot
  • Counterfeit Dollar: A couple of thugs take Dollar away and one of them dresses as Dollar to get hold of Richie's fortune.
