Fun House

Show Summary

Two teams competed for prizes by answering trivia questions and participating in physical stunts. Two rounds were played. Each round had a stunt for 25 points & a 25 point toss-up question. When the two rounds were over, then came the "Grand Prix". One kid would push the car while the other did some zany stunt, while picking up tokens valued @ 10 or 25 points. The teams would switch positions after one lap & then the team that won the race won 50 points. Remember, once a token hits the ground, it's out of play. Then the tokens are added up & the team with the most points wins the game & goes into the Fun House. In the Fun House, there were 13 prize tags that kids would grab along the way. Each kid took a turn inside the house to grab many tags along the way. They had 2:00 inside the Fun House. If they grab the secret prize tag, they would also win the POWER PRIZE!!! (usually a trip). Sometimes, the game was played with one kid & a celebrity partner as a team. In the second season, the series added a water slide inside the Fun House. Fun House also spun-off an adult version called College Mad House with host Greg Kinnear (Yes you read right!). The only difference, no grand prix, just rapid fire questions for 90 seconds while hitting your opponent with a pie in the face. After two syndicated seasons, Fun House moved to Fox Kids when they started a Saturday AM schedule in 1990. Unfortunately, it was the first show to be canned from the schedule. JD Roth would go on to host other kid shows including Double Up, Masters of The Maze, Moolah Beach & Endurance.moreless
