History Edit

Harry and Marv are a pair of criminals that turn on the faucets of the houses they rob, and clog the drains so it results in the house flooding. Having robbed various houses around a small cul-de-sac for some time, they eventually set their eyes on the McCallister's family home, and found out that they were going to Paris for Christmas, so they decided that that was the perfect opportunity to rob their house. Unfortunately though, there was one thing they didn't take into account: The family had accidentally left bratty 8-year old Kevin McCallister home alone in the confusion and rush to get to the airport. When he learned that the two were planning to rob his family's home, he felt like it was his responsibility to protect his home from the Wet Bandits, so he rigged the house with numerous booby traps to take on the bandits. Harry and Marv broke in, sprung the traps and suffered various injuries, but refused to give up. While the duo pursued Kevin around the house, he called the police and fled the house, luring the duo into a neighboring house which they previously broke into. However, Harry and Marv managed to subdue him and discussed how they will get their revenge, but Kevin's next door neighbor, Old Man Marley, sneaked in and knocked them unconscious with his snow shovel before they can harm Kevin. The police arrived and arrested Harry and Marv, having identified all the houses they broke into due to the latter's habit of flooding them.
