Fun House

Fun House was a British children’s game show produced by Scottish Television and based on the American show, that aired on CITV from 24 February 1989 to 29 December 1999.

It usually aired on Fridays (with the exception of Series 4, which aired on Wednesdays and Series 5 & 6, which aired on Thursdays). It was hosted by Pat Sharp, who was also aided by twin cheerleaders, Melanie Grant supporting the red team and Martina Grant supporting the yellow team. The announcer was Gary King.

The theme tune was composed by David Pringle and Bob Heatlie. In 2000, it was revealed by the BBC programme TV’s Finest Failures that a spin-off of Fun House featuring adult contestants was also planned.

A pilot was produced, which included Carol Smillie as a contestant, but it was ultimately never broadcast, and a full series was not commissioned.
