"Harry Potter"

"Harry Potter" (2001 - 2007) Uncle: Vernon Dursley (Richard Griffiths) ‘Uncle Fester’ factor: The most bumbling and red-faced member of a bumbling and red-faced muggle society, Uncle Vernon Dursley loathes his nephew Harry so much that he has kept him in a closet under the stairs for most of our scarred (with a lightning bolt) hero’s life. He fails to tell his nephew that the wizard world threatens him, depriving young Harry of information about his parents' magical origins. Uncle duds: The overweight Dursley wears homely sweaters, ill-fitting pants, an awkwardly side-parted haircut and most notably a thick mustache that dances when he talks. Say Uncle: “I'm not having one in the house, Petunia! Didn't we swear when we took him in we'd stamp out that dangerous nonsense?” —D.N.
