Home Alone Wet Bandits Christmas Sweater
This delightfully decorative, festively fun, Christmas Sweater bears the images of Marvin and Harry, otherwise known as the Wet Bandits from the hit movie, Home Alone. Christmas is a great time for Marv and Harry. They like to make house calls, pick up a few presents along the way and sometimes even impersonate Santa and his elf, in order to spread their Christmas joy around the neighbourhood. We think they would love this sweater showing their fun, seasonal side. After all, not every criminal has their wanted posted knitted into a sweater!
The Wet Bandits
Harry and Marv have had a modicum of success as burglars, robbing well-heeled neighbourhoods while the occupants are away. Marv is anxious that they should earn the respect of fellow criminals by having their own moniker. “All the great ones leave their mark. We’re the Wet Bandits“.
Now we know each and every house that you’ve hit
Marv ensures this title will stick by always leaving the water running in every house they rob. We see evidence of this after they have ransacked The Murphy’s house. Marv blocks the sinks with cloth and then runs the taps. It fails to escape Marv’s attention that when they are caught, it will incriminate them in all similar crimes. He really should let Harry do the thinking.
Released in 1990, Home Alone has taken its place in our minds and hearts as one of the most iconic Christmas Movies of all time. It tells the story of a young boy, Kevin, aged 8 who is left at home accidentally while the rest of his large, extended family fly to Paris to visit relatives for Christmas.
I made my family disappear
Kevin rises to the challenge of coping on his own extremely well. Visiting the shops, buying a tooth brush and surviving an encounter with his brother’s pet tarantula are all activities Kevin seems to take in his stride. Avoiding the local police and fending off the attentions of the south bend shovel slayer are a sinch for our pocket sized survivor. What Kevin could not have anticipated, and gives him his biggest challenge, is the arrival of two ne’er do wells, intent on robbing his family home.
When those guys come back, I’ll be ready
At first Kevin panics. Despite his fear, he manages to fool the burglars that his family are home as usual by flicking on several lights. On the second day when Kevin overhears Marv and Harry’s plan to rob his house that evening, Kevin resolves to be ready for them when they arrive. Amazingly, Kevin fools them into think the house is full of guests “Rocking around the Christmas Tree“, enjoying a bustling, well-attended party.
This is my house. I have to defend it
Alas, on the third day Harry and Marv discover Kevin’s secret that he is home alone. We guess you can only be scammed by a kindygarter for so long. From an upstairs window, Kevin hears their plan to return at 9 O’clock, intent on carrying out their dastardly plan. In a defining moment of courage, Kevin resolves to defend his family home. By the time Marv and Harry return to Lincoln Drive, Kevin has drawn up a battle plan. He turns his whole house into a minefield of booby traps and tricks designed to confuse, cripple and ultimately capture his intruders.
You guys give up? or are ya thirsty for more?
The scenes that follow are inventive, hillarious and delightfully entertaining. Watching two seasoned criminals bested by a pint sized protagonist is pure movie magic. It just goes to show, if you can overcome a giant spider, admonish a talking boiler and still have time to put up Christmas decorations, dispatching two greedy goons intent on ransacking your family home is a piece of cake.
