I still remember it

as if it were yesterday.

A cold and frosty November morning

when Master Richie came into the world.

I have a son.

And I,

Herbert Arthur Runcible Cadbury...

...born in the tradition of service...

... was to become

his gentleman 's gentleman...

...or as you Americans would say,

his butler.

Richie Rich was the long-awaited

first child of Richard and Regina Rich...

...and at 7 pounds, 6 ounces,

was immediately proclaimed...

... the wealthiest baby in the world.

Truly, Master Richie was born into

a life of great wealth and privilege...

...and yet, he was assuredly

his parents ' most valued treasure.

Can you say, ''WaII Street''?

''WaII Street''?

-Can you say, ''bIue chip''?

-Bunches and bunches of money.

-That's how much mommy Ioves you.

-Can you say, ''convertibIe debenture''?

From the day he left his cradle...

...I undertook to show him

all that was good in life.

And I am delighted to report

that never was there a child...

... with a sweeter disposition.

...or a more spirited sense of play.

Although his father,

the senior Richard Rich...

...spent countless hours in his office,

overseeing his vast business empire...

Rich to buy 1 00 miIIion acres of jungIe.

...he still found time to share

simple pleasures with his son.

Thank you, Cadbury.

Go and buiId it anyway.

As he grew, Master Richie

developed a keen interest in sports.

Just a minute. Great toss, son.

-Beep beep, coming through.

-He had everything a boy could want.

Although at the age of 3...

...his driving skills

left something to be desired.

We have to have our Arab friends

understand that. Just a minute.

Nice throw, sIugger.

With baseball, however, he displayed

a quite precocious talent...

Next Tuesday, right.

... which, as the years progressed...

...became more than

just a favorite pastime.

Not bad. Let's try this this time.

I want you to get the back eIbow up.

That a way. Get the bat right here.

ShouIders square.

Nice IeveI swing.

Keep your eye on the basebaII.

Okay, pitch. Put some heat

on it this time.

That's it.

Nice hitting, Richie.

Sorry, CharIes!

Good cIubbing, Master Richie.

You're scoring Ioads of points.

They're caIIed runs, Cadbury. Runs.

Of course. But I'm afraid

we must run, sir.

-Can I have just one more inning?

-That reaIIy isn't possibIe.

-Thank you, Mr. Jackson.

-You're weIcome, Richie. Any time.

AII right, pack it aII up.

In addition to his life of fun and games,

of luxury and privilege...

...Master Richie was obliged to

undertake responsibilities beyond those...

-...of any normal child.

-It's a great day for a ceIebration. . .

. . .and a great day for United TooI!

We're gonna wait for Mr. Rich

because he said he'd be here.

Today marks a miracIe of sorts

here at United TooI.

. . .is now ceIebrating
