When playing with friends afterschool in the fourth grade, I pretended that I had a 4:30 curfew. I had no such thing. I just wanted to get home to watch Fun House. It got on the air in the wake of Double Dare, but was so much better than Double Dare because it had go-kart races, cheerleaders, and a final round that took place in a massive, Daliesque mansion of sloppy confusion.
Funny that one of the smaller prizes, an Opus phone, is now probably worth ten times as much as one of the bigger prizes, a trip to Catalina. Host J.D. Roth (a one-time participant on Star Search in the acting category!) went on to become a very successful TV producer – he created and narrates The Biggest Loser.
