Rick, Ricky, no matter how you spell it, it still means loser.

The little blonde kid from Silver Spoons is changing his name back.

Call Him 'Ricky,' Not 'Rick' Schroder - Starpulse News Blog: "Rick Schroder has ditched his adult name for the one that made him famous as a child star. For his upcoming stint on hit drama 24, the actor will be credited as Ricky Shroder - the name he grew out of in his late teens.

He says, 'My agents said, 'You know, you should change your name to Rick. It'll help grow up from a kid to an adult.' I've learned in the last 20 years it takes more than dropping a letter from your name to help you grow up. And so I'm more comfortable being called Ricky. My wife, my mom, everybody calls me Ricky... Rick never felt right. I felt like I was trying to be something I wasn't.'"

They should really do a Silver Spoons reunion. Most of those people haven't worked in years. Poor Carlton from Fresh Prince. Always a sidekick, never the star.
