Red Guy[1][2] is one of the three protagonists (characters) in the Don't Hug Me I'm Scared series. At the end of Don't Hug Me I'm Scared 4, his head explodes from seeing previous episodes being filmed. After this, he existed in the real world until partway through Don't Hug Me I'm Scared 6, where he returned after trying to teach the real world about creativity. A common fan-used name for him is "Harry". [3] He is voiced by series creator, Joesph Pelling.


Red Guy is the tallest of the main trio. He has red, yarn-like hair that covers his head and two eyes on top of his head which looks like a mop on his head. His whole body is red. Unlike most characters, he is played by a person in a costume rather than a puppet.

The Digital Red Guy

Red Guy seems to be the emo midget of the three puppets, as he doesn't show much interest in the lessons, and would rather go about his own business. It is possible that he is older or more mature than the other two protagonists. He is very street smart and he is also the creator of the DHMIS 1, 2, 3 ,4 ,5 and 6 series and the sponsor of Red Guy's DHMIS series is Roy.

Just like Duck Guy, he cares about Yellow Guy, as seen in the third episode when they give him the last boiled egg in order to prove their friendship.

He was really bored and hard to interest in the fourth episode, as seen with his sarcasm. He seems to grow impatient with the teachers, finally standing up to Colin in DHMIS 4. In DHMIS 5, Red Guy seemed to be completely fed up with the Teachers while in the real world, seeking to take the other puppets out of it by calling them. However, in DHMIS 6, he has recognized the boring nature of the real world, and wants to educate its people about the lessons he received through the Teachers, but his own personality doesn't like it.
