Harold

In Maniac Mansion: Day of the Tentacle, the main character Laverne is sent to the future, where Tentacles rule, and forced to enter a human beauty contest (similar to a dog show). One of the contestants is Harold, who is described as male but dressed as a woman. Harold acts slightly effeminate and has an overstated French accent. This character also looks very similar to the game’s representation of George Washington.
