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

JD Roth, a misplaced career in the 80s
17 February 2005 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

He ain't nothing compared to Marc Summers and his everlasting career, even today. (Food TV) JD Roth felt the need, to ask kids questions randomly during intro that would make them look like complete idiots. I would be more clear on words if JD Roth had not been putting 10 year olds on the spot asking questions about their interests, that mostly, none of them could answer, on the spot, on camera. He bombed on hosting a Double Dare clone that producers shouldve just hired, Mike O'Malley or Summer Sanders. At least Summer Sanders is worth having a crush over... Did JD Roth ever grow past the age of 21? If anything the show FunHouse was good, but had a bad choice of a host. He is not the type like a high profile Marc Summers was, as Marc was highly interactive to the children on his game shows. Marc always involved the stage cast as well as getting himself gacked up in the process. My honest, and long lived opinion. JD Roth is not Marc Summers, and I'm glad he is off Nick TV and onto Discovery Kids. He needs his own identity away from the Double Dare clones. This is not to flame JD Roth, but its a shame he was subjected to be compared to the legendary Marc Summers.
