Added DiffLines:

* BrokenAesop: The film tries to make a "Money can't buy friendship" aesop early on, which quickly backfires when Cadbury pays off some local kids to visit Richie at Rich Manor and essentially doing just that. Though Gloria doesn't care about the money anymore anyway, and later on, the kids all come to see Richie as their friend regardless of his money so the aesop kind of holds true.

* PragmaticAdaptation: To deal with the property's deficit in female protagonists, the Creator/HannaBarbera series played up Irona as not only the Riches' RobotMaid, but as Richie's bodyguard with [[DoAnythingRobot a myriad of functions]] to use in his protection.

* LostInTranslation: A real life positive example. In the French dub, van Dough's line "Thank you, Beavis and Butthead" is replaced with the line "Looks like Homer and Marge".

* TakeThat: At one point, Rich Sr. is having a sit-down with the U.S. President, who is genuinely surprised to hear Rich explain "You see, Mr. President, when a country spends more than it takes in, it goes into debt." The implicit joke is quite obvious.

** For Ferguson, it's when he roughly grabs Richie near the beginning and justifies it by saying "it's my job to protect him."

Added DiffLines:

* FreudianExcuse: It's possible that Ferguson became Van Dough's {{Dragon}} because he felt unappreciated by the Riches for whatever reason, as implied by his "employee of the month" comment to Cadbury.

* CutLexLuthorACheck: Arguably an averted trope judging from Keenbean's behavior. The Rich family's financial wealth exceeds 70 billion dollars, and some of this may be because they family may be patenting and selling the inventions their GadgeteerGenius Keenbean creates. If so, Keenbean doesn't seem to mind that at all as the Rich family are [[BenevolentBoss Benevolent Bosses]] who are using their wealth to enable him to freely invent wonders (some less obvious than others like the Smellmaster) that would likely be unable to make without a wealthy patron. He might also love his job for various other perks like him being a BigEater inside a mansion that has its own McDonalds.
