Cartoon debut Arthur's Cousin Catastrophe

Ricky is one of Arthur's cousins.

Physical appearance

Ricky is an aardvark with darker brown complexion than his sisters. He wears a black and red shirt, gray jeans with brown patches, and blue and white sneakers. The laces from his sneakers are often untied and they are seen on the floor.

He also wears a cream colored hat and has black hair most likely an Afro. In "Coming Together" Ricky wore long black jeans, a red and white striped shirt, and red sneakers. He also wore a white baseball cap.

In "Dancing Fools", his appearance changed again. His brown complexion became lighter compared to his previous appearances although his hair color remained the same. He wore a gray shirt with a darker shades of gray on the shirt and what appeared to be beige khakis from what seen.


At the Read family reunion, he competed against Arthur in some of the family activities. He really liked to play basketball, as his dad filmed him. "Arthur's Cousin Catastrophe"

He appeared again as part of the singing chorus in "Arthur's Almost Live Not Real Music Festival" during the Library Song when all the kids are gathered together.

He had an unexplained cameo in "Arthur vs. the Very Mean Crossing Guard" where he rides his bike in front of the school. It's possible he goes to another school in Elwood City possibly Mighty Mountain Elementary School.

He made another appearance in the Postcards from Buster episode, "Coming Together", where he was seen with his little sister as they were standing outside a shop that sold sweets. He appeared again in "Dancing Fools", where he was attending the same dance class Francine, Muffy, and pretty much several of the students from Lakewood were in. He also didn't speak in this episode either.
