The Actor

Harvey the Wonder Hamster has been aroundsince Al's first appearance on ALTV on MTV, and perhaps even before.Though the Harvey in The Weird Al Show is certainly not the samehamster as the original Harvey (they only have a lifespan of two tothree years), he is certainly a worthy successor. He performs hisduties, his stunts and being a best friend to Al, admirably.
