  1. For some reason I'm always surprised to see Dr Seuss on this list, but I don't know why I should be. Pretty much every English-speaking family on the planet owns at least a few of his books.

  6. Did you do the graphic for this one? Good ghost on the steps...saw it after a second look.

  7. I'd have thought Agatha Christie, Irving Berlin and Harold Robbins would be there somewhere. But I suppose it's not just what you produced in your lifetime, it's also how good your accountants and lawyers were!

  8. I would imagine Princess Diana would have a rather wealthy legacy.

  9. That's a very cool list!!!! Happy TT!!!

  10. I saw this list earlier, but it didn't connect that only one woman was listed.

    We've got a lot of work to do to catch up, huh?

  11. Doesn't surprise me ... great list !

    ReplyDelete
  12. Wow...thanks for the memories. Poor Marilyn Monroe. I wonder if she knew she would be this famous?? Happy TT.

    ReplyDelete
  13. John Paul Getty or some of the oil Barons like Waite Phillips are some I would have thought would be on the list. I guess inflation made these others more wealthy.
    Happy TT!

  14. Yes Up to My Ears, I did the graphic...

  15. Just today they put out another list === Elvis was 1, Lennon was 2, Charles Schulz was 3 and George Harrison was 4. Unfortunately, only Marilyn again -- the only woman. Altho, she'd probably like that!!
    Happy TT!

  17. So pretty much what you're saying is that these are 13 of the richest heirs in the world.

    ReplyDelete
  18. Wow! That's a list! I would have thought Johnny Carson would be on there?

    ReplyDelete
  19. I can't believe only one woman...if Oprah dies tomorrow...there is 2 :)

  21. Hi, found you over at Works For Mom and decided to pop in. I just heard on the radio today that deceased rapper Tupac Shakur tops Forbes' list of top-grossing dead entertainers. Ain't that something?

    ReplyDelete
  22. I never thought Seuss or Einstein would be on that list Happy TT-http://inraesworld.blogspot.com/

  23. This is a great list! Too bad we could not have any of their money! They don't need it! :)

    ReplyDelete
  24. LOL on the other one who commented if Oprah dies tomorrow:D

    Great list! Doesn't surprised me either!
    Mine is up here;
    Thursday Thirteen
    Happy TT and Happy Halloween!

  25. Wow, that really surprises me. I wouldn't have expected it.

    Love the you-as-jack o lantern photo. I can't link to my blog because you don't have comments enabled. See #82 for the link---we've got some amazing photos.

  26. Anna Nicole Smith? Oh, and Princess Diana.

    ReplyDelete
  27. I dunno but three of my favs are on that list, Lennon, Harrison & Tolkien!

    ReplyDelete
  28. One female. There is a lesson in gender relations in that list somewhere.

    ReplyDelete
  29. Reaching back, I thougt Cleopatra would make the list and the founder of Mary Kay cosmetics.
    Sam Walton of Wal-Mart could be on the list as well.

    ReplyDelete
  30. I can't believe there was only one lady on the list. :-( Mary Kay Ash probably had (still has) much wealth since she was the one who started Mary Kay Cosmetics, which is still in business today. Great list. Happy TT!

  31. Only one gal, that is sad! I'm surprised Kurt Cobain is above Elvis. The King is slipping! :) Happy TT! Mine is 13 quotes from The Office!

  32. Now that was interesting
    Happy T13

    ReplyDelete
  33. Yeah - but she was some gal! Fun list - see ya.

    ReplyDelete
  34. I was surprised to see Dr. Seuss and Johnny Cash on this list... don't really know why because I knew they were rich... but I guess not THAT rich. Also, Albert Einstein? My TT is here... I'd love to have you stop by.

    ReplyDelete
  35. I LIKE your site. I do naps myself (though I can't blame it on having little kids anymore - ha ha)

    Only ONE woman? Geesh...

    Happy TT-13!

    ReplyDelete
  36. I would've thought Agatha Christie would be on the list since her books have NEVER gone out of print.

    ReplyDelete
  37. Are they still arguing about who gets Marley's money?

    ReplyDelete
  38. Well when Oprah and Martha die, they'll have to come out with a new list eh?

    -HH

    ReplyDelete
  39. I'm not sure who else I would have expected, but only one girl...bummer.

    ReplyDelete
  40. Give it time - Anna Nicole may end up there too

    ReplyDelete
  41. Now that was very interesting. Good TT. :o)

    ReplyDelete
  42. Whoa!
    Happy TT to you...

  43. Interesting list, though I'm not sure of how Einstein fits in.
    Only one female...unfortunately, it makes sense since historically women have been so devalued. I'd like to see how the list changes in 50 years.

    ReplyDelete
  44. No kidding? That's interesting! Mine's up -- come by when you can :)

    ReplyDelete
  45. Fascinating list. For some reason, I wouldn't have expected to see Kurt Cobain on there. My list is up at Siani's Pot-Pourri/. Happy TT!

    ReplyDelete
  46. I am surprised that James Dean or Humphrey Bogart aren't on the list. By the way, your TT header is really cool!

    ReplyDelete
  47. Well, good for Marilyn.

    Anna Nicole didn't have much money when she died because they're still fighting over the estate of her late husband.

    I too would have thought Princess Di would have been on that list, but supposedly the royal family doesn't have a whole lot of money of their own and she was actually divorced from Prince Charles. Even Fergie had to get a job after her divorce.

    ReplyDelete
  48. Now that's a list!!!! :)

    Happy TT

    ReplyDelete
  49. I'm surprised Kurt is #1, too. Peeps love their Nirvana, I guess!
