Pitfall Harry is the protagonist of the Pitfall series of video games.


Harry is an explorer, seeking treasures of ancient civilizations.

While mostly only seeking treasure, Harry has also saved people in distress and even thwarted a shaman priest from causing the destruction of El Dorado in the past.

At some point he had a son, Pitfall Harry Jr.

Pitfall also has a niece named Rhonda according to [[Pitfall II: Lost Caverns]] where he has to rescue her.


Though mostly a generic explorer/treasure hunter archetype in the earlier games, Harry was given a personality in Pitfall: The Lost Expedition.

He is portrayed as a cocky, sarcastic fast talking egotist who fancies himself a ladies man. He is however also portrayed as brave, honorable and and selfless. In Pitfall: The Mayan Adventure, his personality is more silly, cartoonish and a bit doofy, but is nonetheless still adventurous and brave.

Harry's father left when he was young, leading to him being raised by a man called David Crane.


Harry is portrayed by Steven Jay Blum in his only talking performance.


  • Harry's adoptive father is named after his creator.
  • Harry is the protagonist of all games in the series except for Pitfall: The Mayan Adventure and Pitfall 3D: Beyond the Jungle. In both of which his son is the playable character.
