Media appearance


Reggie Van Dough in Richie Rich's Christmas Wish.

Richie Rich (1994)

There was a character named Reginald in the first Richie Rich film whose character is similar to Reggie but his surname is never stated and it's never said if he's somehow related to Richie or just his classmate from a prestigious school. John Larroquette played Laurence Van Dough, the main antagonist and the villain. He is the greedy CFO of Rich Inc. who plots to steal the Rich Family fortune. He is loosely based on Reggie.

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.
