to the world of showbiz! Richie Rich believes himself to be a top family entertainer in showbiz. However, his over enthusiasim
is stunted by his minder, Eddie Catflap, and his agent, Ralph Filthy. Eddie hates him, but has to mind his boy Richie anyway.
Ralph has the hardest task of trying to get him some work, and when he does, Richie gets into some pretty odd situations.
With milkman murders, blackmailing Noles and even mooning on TVAM, theres hilarious mishaps everywhere!
EPISODE ONE: Richie has accidently
killed a couple of milkmen. One milkman, he could laugh it off. But two, well, its very Freddie Starr isn't it. However, theres
also that small problemette of a 19 year old girl whos filed a paternity suit against him. He needs all his cash for him,
but things turn out a little unexpected when Eddie has the blood test instead.
EPISODE TWO: Would you believe
it. Todays the only day of the decade that Richie Rich is working. With a job at "Oo-er, Sounds A Bit Rude", a gameshow for
all the family, he hopes its a major career boost for him. Things get a little too exciting when he manages to break into
the Nolans dressing room. Meanwhile, Filthy has managed to find a way to buy his own fags, and Eddie gets out his easle in
an attempt to pay off those blackmailing Noles.
EPISODE THREE: Its time for
Richies dinner party. Hes been studying cooking all morning, so he and Eddie go shopping for 12 courses of meat. But Richie
Rich will soon be in priz, because he nicked from the local shop infront of 50 mad checkout girls. So the guys need an alibi,
and Ralphs best idea is a peep show. But they still end up in priz. Its a good job Eddies got an escape plan, and Richie can
get home in time for his fabulous dinner party!
EPISODE FOUR: Bloody great
news! Richies about to get a contract for advertising flowers, but only if his dad dies and he can get enough has-been celebs
to the funeral. But when his dad takes a turn for the better, Richie takes Eddie to help find someone to kill his dad for
him. Why they're in a gay pub is anyones guess, and when theres confusion over which gloves to wear when getting the rat poison,
surely they're in the clear now. or are they...?
EPISODE FIVE: Richies about
to become ENORM (Oo-er!) Hes got an incredible showbiz job, reading the gossip column on TVAM! But theres trouble. Can
Eddie and Richie make it to the television studios for 4:30.... In the morning?! Maybe if they'd stayed in playing Triv, instead
of going out on a lager and popadom frenzy, they wouldnt have ended up mooning to three million viewers on TVAM.
EPISODE SIX: For saving them
in court, Filthy becomes the first man to be hung since they brought back capital punishment. But maybe if Eddie gets him
some pipe (Don't ask, it spoils the plot) then he can help them get a job. Following their only talents, Richie and Eddie
becomes part of The Scum. Now that theyre journalists, they've been asked to find out about Midge Ure and Mrs Thatchers affair.
Even though its not true, they do what journos do best. Thats right, they make it up! After covering Filthys hanging, the
trio find a way to corrupt every single light entertainer, until theres only Richie left. Has he really made it?
