Harry Dunne is a former dog breeder, and self-employed dog groomer from Providence, Rhode Island. He is best friends and roommates with Lloyd Christmas. He is the secondary protagonist of the 1994 film, Dumb and Dumber as well as the 2003 prequel film, Dumb and Dumberer: When Harry Met Lloyd and the 2014 film, Dumb and Dumber To along with Lloyd Christmas.


Harry was born to a loving mother in 1969. He met Lloyd in high school in the year 1986. In 1994, Harry accompanied his roommate and best friend Lloyd Christmas to Aspen to deliver a briefcase to Mary Swanson. Twenty years later, he and Lloyd would travel on the road again to search for his potential long-lost daughter.


Harry is a good natured, yet an incredibly airheaded and childish gentleman, although he showed signs that he was a little bit smarter than Lloyd on some things, like how illegal it would be for Lloyd to marry a woman 20 years his junior. Despite his ditziness, Harry is also more literate and more well read than his younger friend. He was also surprisingly charismatic, as Mary Swanson took quite a shine to him. He was prone to unintentional accidents, which usually brought disaster on himself and/or anyone in the vicinity. Harry also has no clue how to properly speak into a cell phone or intercom. He also tends to forget important events that have happened in his life. For example, when his mother died, he was passed on to a Chinese family. When they told him that he was adopted, he was quite shocked to hear that news. The flighty Harry is also completely ignorant of illegal activities happening right in front of his face. Like Lloyd, Harry also overestimates himself immensely. When he fantasized about him being a good father to Penny, in reality those parenting methods would have gotten him arrested.
