Media appearance


Reggie Van Dough in Richie Rich's Christmas Wish.

Richie Rich (1994)

Richie Rich's Christmas Wish (1998)

He serves as the main antagonist of the direct-to-video film Richie Rich's Christmas Wish, as the equivalent to Mr. Potter. He intends to get rid of Richie so he can be the richest kid and cancel Christmas. He mistreats his servants and threatens them with getting into a really bad mood. At the end, his servants in the timeline where Richie doesn't exist quit on him and refuse to work for anyone wanting to cancel Christmas. Like Mr. Potter in the original story, he's never seen suffering any sort of commeupance in the main timeline. Reggie was played by Jake Richardson.


  • An adapted version of Reggie's character plays a part in the first Richie Rich film, however he is much older, and his name is changed to Lawrence.
  • There is another character named Reggie in the first Richie Rich movie, that shows antagonists traits. However that is purely coincidental, and it's an entirely different character.
