Tom Bergeron is a popular TV Host on the show Dancing with the Stars. He has also hosted Good Morning America and The Early Show, and has won many Emmy awards. His parents are Ray and Kay Bergeron.
Harrison Bergeron, the protagonist of the story, has exceptional intelligence, height, strength and beauty, and as a result he has to bear enormous handicaps. These include distracting noises, three hundred pounds of excess weight, eyeglasses to give him headaches and cosmetic changes to make him ugly.Despite these societal handicaps, he is able to invade a TV station and declare himself emperor. As he strips himself of his handicaps, then dances with a ballerina whose handicaps he has also discarded, both are shot dead by the Handicapper General. The story is framed by an additional perspective from Bergeron's parents, who are watching TV but cannot concentrate enough to remember the incident.For more information on the novel, characters, and themes, please visit the eNotes link below.
(major) George & Hazel Bergeron - parents of Harrison. Hazel is "average" and has no handicaps; while George is a big, tall man and very smart. He wears a transmitter in his ear that goes off every 20 seconds to prevent him from using his brain. He has weighted bags attached to himself to make him more "equal". (major) Harrison Bergeron - 14 years old, extremely tall (7 ft); athletic, very handsome, smart. He has sheet metal handicaps to weigh him down; his eyebrows are shaved off, black caps to cover his perfect teeth, very thick glasses and a red ball to be kept on his nose, all to hide his perfectly good looks. (major) Diana Moon Glampers - Handicapper General. She is of average intelligence and looks, appearing to be the same as Hazel, so she does not have handicaps, but she is in charge, has a shotgun and uses it to enforce the "rules". Apparently the rules do not apply to her. (minor) Television announcer - has speech impediment - a job that one with such a handicap would not be able to obtain. (minor) Ballerinas - have handicaps such as masks to cover their beautiful faces, heavy bags around their necks so they won't be able to stand tall. (minor) H-G men - Diana Moon Glamper's "police" that help enforce the laws. (minor) Band players - start out with handicaps that make them play terribly at first. Harrison strips them of their handicaps and they begin to play beautiful music. The H-G comes in and tells them to put their handicaps back on or "they will be shot".
Benjamin Harrison was born on August 20, 1833
