Fun House

Two cheerleading twins called Melanie and Martina Grant


Scottish Television for ITV, 1990 to 1999


Gunge = Good?

Two teams of two play three gungy games to win points. After each game they are asked a question worth more points. After the third game it's the Fun Kart grand prix, a race around the studio where they can earn lots and lots of bonus points. This section would be good, were it not for the fact that the karts go at around 2mph, seemingly.

Fun House = Fun?

At this point the winners go into the Funhouse, by far the best bit of the show where they can win some fabulous prizes. They have two minutes in order to collect the fifteen prize tags hidden around the various obsticles. Each person can only collect three tags before they have to come out, tag the other player and they do the same.

One of the prize tages is the Power Prize. Picking the Power Prize means that, after answering a general knowledge question correctly, they win a distinctly good prize of an action holiday whatever.

It's typical ITV kiddie fare. Reasonably entertaining and the Funhouse is quite cool. If a little bit patronising.

Key moments

In the final jackpot question, one pair of kids were asked "Name three kinds of emergency service". The children replied: "Police, Ambulence... and the A.A". No, they aren't really the fourth emergency service.

Theme music

"Wacky! Wild! Crazy! It's outrageous!

"Fun House... it's a whole lot of fun, prizes to be won,
It's a real crazy show where anything can go.
Fun House... it's a quiz, it's a race, a real wacky place,
Use your body and your brain if you wanna play the game!"
