"Fun House" Theme Song

It's Wacky, it's fun, it's Cr-a-a-a-zy, it's outrageous, it's the Fun House theme tune!:



The British version of Fun House aired on CITV from 1989-99. The game show was hosted by Pat Sharp along with the twin cheerleaders Melanie and Martina Grant, and Gary King as the announcer.

Theme song lyrics to the UK version of Fun House, via Game Shows Wiki:

It's Wacky!
It's Fun!
It's Cr-a-a-a-zy!
It's outrageous!
Fun House,
It's a whole lot of fun,

It's a real wacky place!
Use your body and your brain!
If you wanna play the game!
