Harry and Marv

The Wet Bandits were a duo of criminals, comprised of Marv Murchins and Harry Lyme. Marv was solely responsible for the name, after leaving a calling card of leaving the water running at every house they robbed.[1]

After escaping prison, Marv decided that they become the Sticky Bandits after wrapping his hand in tape to steal money from a donation bucket.[2]

Behind the scenes[]

The duo appears only in the 1990 film Home Alone and its 1992 sequel, Home Alone 2: Lost in New York.

While a version of Marv appears in Home Alone 4 (which shares a loose connection to the original two films), the terms "Wet Bandits" and "Sticky Bandits" are never used as Marv ditches Harry and partners up with his sidekick/wife Vera and mother Molly.
