Harvey is a large golden retriever who belongs to Elliot. He is initially hostile toward E.T. when they first meet, but E.T. manages to control him with his telepathy. When they walk into the kitchen, Harvey watches E.T. as he raids the refrigerator for food. E.T. tries some potato salad he finds, but dislikes the taste and throws it on the floor, which Harvey begins to eat up. Harvey is also walking with the kids as they trick-or-treat on Halloween.
