Casper the Friendly Ghost Wiki

Richie Rich, the Poor Little Rich Boy, is a character created by Harvey Comics that first appeared in Little Dot #1 and the main protagonist in his own comics. Richie is the only child of fantastically wealthy parents and is the world's richest kid. His middle name is a dollar sign, $. Richie Rich quickly became the most popular character to come from Harvey Comics, starring in over 1000 comic books, two cartoon series, two feature films, and a live-action show currently airing on Netflix.


Richie started as a mere supporting character in Little Dot's stories, but his popularity quickly overshadowed the book's titular character, even surpassing the fame of Harvey's most popular characters Casper the Friendly Ghost and Hot Stuff the Little Devil. Due to this unexpected success, Harvey Comics started to publish several books with Richie Rich as the protagonist character in the early 60's.


Contrary to popular depictions of rich people in media, Richie is a friendly and good-hearted boy, that cares about others.
