Before they shorts were all brought together to form its own independent series, Richie Rich was always paired up with another series for each season; the first two seasons were paired with Scooby-Doo and Scrappy-Doo for The Richie Richie/Scooby-Doo Show, the third season was paired with Pac-Man and The Little Rascals for The Pac-Man/Little Rascals/Richie Rich Show, and the fourth and final season was paired with Monchhichis and Little Rascals for The Monchhichis/Little Rascals/Richie Rich Show.
