The Collector is a villain in the Richie Rich series of publications by Harvey Comics, and in the animated series produced by Hanna-Barbera. The animated version was voiced by Robert Ridgely, and was seen in three episodes.
The Collector made his first appearance in Harvey Comics in a late 1981 issue of Richie Rich Fortunes. In the animated series, his first appearance was on the Season 3 premiere, and his hideout was a castle. He used a special gun designed to shrink his victims to about 6 inches tall and held them in drinking glasses.
He made two more appearances in the fourth and final season, in the episodes "Rich for a Day" and "Irona Story" - with no shrinking plot involved. In the latter episode, The Collector had escaped from prison, kidnapped Irona and made her work for the villain. He plotted a robbery at the Louvre Museum in Paris, and then fled to the Swiss Alps, where Richie had ultimately captured the villain.
