This was on the Simpsons tonight, from the episode where Bart, Milhouse and Martin all chip in to buy a rare comic book:
Bart: Well, you know what I think? I think Casper is the ghost of Richie Rich.
Lisa: Hey, they do look alike!
Bart: Wonder how Richie died.
Lisa: Perhaps he realized how hollow the pursuit of money really is and took his own life.
Marge: Kids, could you lighten up a little?
