Fun House is an American children's television game show that aired from September 5, 1988, to April 13, 1991. The first two seasons aired in daily syndication, with the Fox network picking it up and renaming it Fox's Fun House for its third and final season. Similar in format to Double Dare airing at the time, the show saw two teams competing against each other answering questions and taking part in messy games, with the winners running through an obstacle course (the titular "Fun House") at the end of the show.

  • Fun House is an American children's television game show that aired from September 5, 1988, to April 13, 1991. The first two seasons aired in daily syndication, with the Fox network picking it up and renaming it Fox's Fun House for its third and final season. Similar in format to Double Dare airing at the time, the show saw two teams competing against each other answering questions and taking part in messy games, with the winners running through an obstacle course (the titular "Fun House") at the end of the show. The show was hosted for its entire run by J. D. Roth. He was assisted by twin cheerleaders and sisters Jacqueline "Jackie" and Samantha "Sammi" Forrest, who each cheered for one of the teams, and the announcer. John "Tiny" Hurley announced for both syndicated seasons and actor/breakdancer Michael "Boogaloo Shrimp" Chambers, referred to on air as "MC Mike", replaced him when the show moved to Fox in 1990. British Knights was a major sponsor of the show, and every contestant and cast/crew member (including Roth) wore a pair of the company's shoes. This was later changed to . The show was created by game show producer Bob Synes, who served as executive producer of the series with his partner, Scott Stone, for the first two seasons. When Synes died in 1990, Stone paired with David Stanley, and what was previously known as Stone Television became known as Stone Stanley Productions. The show remained a Stone Stanley production until its final episode in 1991. Stone's initial coproducer and distributor was Lorimar-Telepictures, which produced the series for much of the first season. Beginning in 1989, Lorimar Television assumed co-production duties and Warner Bros. Television Distribution became the distributor. A year after the show premiered, a spinoff series called College Mad House was created. Premiering in 1989 and running in weekly syndication for one season, it was hosted by Greg Kinnear and featured teams of college students from various universities around the United States competing against each other.
