> First - when did Santa Claus get particularly rich?
Well, he's been making all those toys and giving them for free all these
years, so he *must* be rich.
Somehow, reducing such things to a matter of available cash, even if
infinite, sounds like sacrilege to me.

Richie Rich is a comic book hero who is supposed to be an extremely
rich kid, and according to Don Markstein's toonopedia, he is anything
but obscure. (Even I had heard of him, having read a story or two.) I've
no idea who Oliver 'Daddy' Warbucks" is.
