A kid's game show that pitted two teams of two players each. The contestants had to answer trivia questions and participate in challenges, such as trying to nail targets in the audience seats with water balloons. This was followed by a race between the two teams around a track that involved a variety of bizarre push carts. The team with the most points at the end of the game got to enter the Fun House. The two teammates took turns running through the collection of wacky rooms and obstacles to find tags that represented the prizes printed on them. The contestants won all prizes printed on the tags that they collected and took out of the Fun House before the two minute time limit was up. Written by Annonymous

A curio of the late 1980's
4 February 2002 | by (USA) – See all my reviews

During the 1980's the Nickelodeon cable channel had great success with "Double Dare" with host Marc Summers. "Funhouse" was an attempt to copy that success in syndication. "Funhouse" was actually a good game show, at least for kids. It required them to do a lot of silly stunts and answer some easy questions. I remember J.D. Roth hosting that show. I also remember "Tiny" the announcer who looked like he weighed 300 lbs! The show ran for about 2 years, from the fall of 1988 to early 1990. Perhaps the Gameshow channel will show the reruns someday.

Final rating: 7/10 (For 80's children) "An enjoyable show. Not a classic, but it's not supposed to be".
