Netflix’s ‘Richie Rich’ Series Is “A Show Families Can Watch Together”

Back in October 2014, Netflix announced a pact with AwesomenessTV to bring the popular 1950s comic strip Richie Rich to the streaming platform as a kids’ TV show. Now, the updated retelling has ten episodes available on Netflix as of February 20, 2015.

The original Richie Rich featured the titular character as the son of rich parents, but Netflix’s version finds Richie (played by Dark Skies’s Jake Brennan) as a self-made entrepreneur.
