    Richest cartoon characters?

    Like This Thread!
    A month or two back, Forbes magazine updated its list of the richest fictional characters, as such:

    http://www.forbes.com/2006/11/14/for...ct15_sort.html

    An entertaining enough idea for a list, even if I think their rankings are way off (IMO, Scrooge McDuck has to be the richest cartoon character ever, and probably uses the $36 billion listed for Warbucks as mattress stuffing ;-) ) and/or present questionable choices (Nigerian email scam guy?!).

    Thus, my question: who would you pick as the richest cartoon characters, and (optional) how would you rank them?

    For me, richest cartoon characters and their rankings might include:

    1. Scrooge McDuck
    2. Flintheart Glomgold (second-richest duck and all, heh...)
    3. The Rich family (*not* just "Richie Rich" as the Forbes people list---since it's technically the fortune of his parents, Regina and Richard Rich (Sr.)).
    4. Bruce Wayne
    5. Lex Luthor (post-Crisis)?
    6. Montana Max?
    7. Daddy Warbucks?

    Might go back and revise this (based on others' input/more time to think about it)... your choices?

    Scrooge for sure. He has that 60 ft. wherehouse filled to the brim of gold coins and swims in it.

    I 2nd this comment. I really think Scrooge deserves the number 1 spot because he earned his money through hard and honest work and can remeber how he got each coin from his money bin.(which shows how much he cares)

    Well, there doesn't seem to be much debate here, about who should be in first place. Maybe we should accept Scrooge McDuck as a given, and just debate who the other top five should be.

    For that slot, don't overlook Montgomery Burns (cue sinister music.)

    BTW: I think Forbes' listing of Prince Abakaliki among it's 'fictional characters' was an imaginative manouver, if just a tad insensitive towards the dopes who actually fell for that ridiculous scam.

    What about Princess Morbucks? She bought a whole city. So her family has to be multibillionaires.

    I would include David Xanatos, from Gargoyles. He is arguably the richest man in his world.

    The Comte de Cagliostro (Lupin III: The Castle of Cagliostro) has nearly unlimited wealth, but he might be disqualified because he prints it himself.

    For Forbes' Fictional 15, Doc Savage should have a place on the list. Hell, he's got more money than Lara Croft!
