Pretty much defining the 90s, Fun House was sooooo much more than just another kids TV Show. It was a place of dreams!

Rocking the airwaves from 1989 way up to 1999, Pat Sharp and his fab duo Melanie and Martina had us on the edge of our seats each week as they led two teams (team Red Vs team Yellow) through the games which included answering questions, finding items, dressing up and of course a lot of gunge! What more could you possibly want?! Oh yeah….and it had Go-Karts!!

Just like everyone we knew at school, we would have given our entire POG collection for a chance to be on this game show, mainly so we could grab some great prizes, race around the (pretty much walking pace) Grand Prix race track and above all else….get our very own Fun House TShirt! Maybe this was a sign for our future endeavours. Hmmmm….

Sadly, as this show is no longer running, the chances of us getting our hands on one of these iconic tees is pretty slim right? WRONG!

Working with one of our personal heroes Pat Sharp himself, we’ve created some amazing new Fun House Team TShirts which we have just launched into the site. Take a peep….

Available form just £14.99 too, what better way to share your love for this 90s icon than with your very own team tee. The only thing left to figure out is….to be team red or team yellow?

Oh how our geeky senses are trembling! With the release of the action-packed new Captain America film Civil War just a few days away *eeeeeep!*, Truffle Towers is a buzz with anticipation of the epic new addition to our already quickly growing superhero movie faves and it’s not hard to see why.

Packed with more superheroes than a kid’s toy box, this amazing new adventure is sure to feed even the most hungry hero lover out there with amazing special effects, combat and some good old fashioned hero cheesiness. What’s not to love right?

So what’s it all about?

This big new adventure finds Captain America leading an Avengers team that includes Iron Man, Black Widow, Falcon, Winter Soldier, War Machine, Hawkeye, Black Panther, Scarlet Witch, Ant-Man and Spider-Man. Following a major attack which results in huge collateral damage and the loss of civilian lives, political pressure mounts as the government seeks more accountability and regulation on their actions.
This sparks a divide in the Avengers with The Captain seeking to remain free from such control and the usually wayward rogue Iron Man who believes the team should work with the officials. Members of the team pick a side and are forced to fight for what they believe. That can only go well…

See for yourself! Take a peep at this official trailer for a glimpse at the action….

………..

Pretty epic huh! Will they sort their differences and what will this mean for The Avengers role in society? Well….a trip to the movies to catch this should tell you all.

So are YOU ready?

With more superheroes on the big screen than ever before, there are plenty more reasons each year to show your love for some of the most iconic comic book legends which is just our speciality! Always expanding our range of official Superhero TShirts, we’re pretty set for our trip to the pictures and if anything are spoilt for choice!

Perhaps one of the most influential, interesting, iconic and talented people ever to hit the stage and screen, David Bowie was not only our childhood hero through the cult film Labyrinth, but also someone we have known and loved our entire lives for his simply genius music.

Always on the hunt for a good bit of tasty knowledge to sink our teeth into, we thought we would do some digging and pop together some cool facts we’ve recently learned about the legend himself. Sit back and enjoy our 10 Things You [Probably] Didn’t Know About David Bowie…

> His eyes are actually the same colour – Perhaps hard to believe we know, his eyes are the same colour, however after a fight as a kid his left eye was left permanently dilated which gives it the appearance of being darker.

> As impressive at it is, Bowie was in a total of 10 bands; The Hype, Tao Jones Index, Tin Machine, The Buzz, The Riot Squad, The King Bees, The Lower Third, The Manish Boys, The Konrads and The Hooker Brothers.

> He released the first downloadable single from a major artist – Back in 1996, Bowie released his single ‘Telling Lies’ on his website. Given the dial-up speeds back then this might have taken around 11 minutes to complete. How did we have the patience back then?? Well worth the wait though huh.

> He did the voice (gurgling) for the baby in the song “Magic Dance,” in the movie Labyrinth.

> He was buddies with a young Elton John – When he was 17, Bowie (who was then still David Jones) loved to meet up with his friend Reginald Kenneth Dwight (who later of course became Elton John) at the Soho’s Giaconda Cafe, to hang out and talk about music.

> He really didn’t like the song ‘The Little Drummer Boy’ – A classic clip of the man himself with music veteran Bing Crosby singing together shows Bowie singing a song called ‘Peace on Earth’ while Bing sang ‘The Little Drummer Boy’. Bowie’s part, ‘Peace on Earth’, was written for him so Bowie didn’t have to sing a simple duet of ‘The Little Drummer Boy’, so they turned it into a mix of the two. Awesome stuff!

> Letting the numbers speak for themselves, David Bowie sold more than 140 million records in his lifetime.

> His first television appearance was in 1964, at the age of 17, he was interviewed on a BBC program as the founder of The Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Long-haired Men.

> David Bowie’s best known duets are of course with Freddie Mercury, Mick Jagger, and Bing Crosby. However, have you seen this live duet of ‘Tonight’ he did with Tina Turner?

>In 1980, he starred in the Broadway production of The Elephant Man.

So there you have them folks. Hopefully we’ve given you a little extra glimpse into the life of this extraordinary man who shook the world and stamped his mark on it forever.

Help spread your love for this cult icon with a little help of our huge range of David Bowie TShirts or Labyrinth Merchandise. So many items from here we’ll sure be rocking for a long time to come.

Ever since its release back in 2003, Elf has been a part of every Christmas for us. Bringing Buddy back into our lives once again filling us with Christmas joy, we simply can’t imagine a Christmas film list that doesn’t include this Will Ferrel classic!

His unstoppable charm and spirit have come to be a staple in many homes over the festive season reminding us of that little kid inside all of us who just loves decorations, Christmas trees, gifts and of course SUGAR!

Just before we all settle town to tuck into this modern classic (if you haven’t already!), why not take a peep at our 10 Things You [Probably] Didn’t Know About The Movie Elf so you can annoy wow all your fellow viewers. Enjoy!
.
1 – The script for Elf was originally written way back in the ’90s, and Jim Carrey (off of The Grinch fame) was originally tied to the role before Will Ferrell was cast.
2 - Will Ferrell’s reaction to the jack-in-the-boxes are all real, they were controlled remotely out of shot so he never knew exactly when they would jump out each time.
3 – Buddy’s famous 12-second burp was not done by Will Ferrell but it was real! It’s was actually done by the same voice actor who played Brain from Pinky and the Brain.
4 – In the first draft of the script, Buddy was bullied by his fellow elves, which is why he left to look for his dad. But the director pushed to change this because he wanted to keep the North Pole characters warm and sweet and not bullying meanies!
5 – Buddy or Will Ferrell actually suffered from headaches and a lack of sleep from all the sugar he had to eat during filming. Looks fun though.
6 – Peter Billingsley who played Ralphie in A Christmas Story makes a cameo as an elf in the film. Have you spotted him?
7 – To play the bubbly baby version of the titular elf, Favreau had initially cast twin boys whose blonde curly hair made them great little doubles for the mop-topped Will Ferrell. However, the production ran into a problem when instead of smiling and crawling as needed, they cried relentlessly. To replace them, brunette triplet girls were brought in, who were far perkier and more playful, and thereby ready for their close-ups.
8 – The movies director Jon Favreau (who also direct the Iron Man films) makes an appearance in the movie as the doctor who runs the DNA test on Buddy and also the voice of Mr. Narwhal.
9 – The costume Buddy wears is almost identical to the outfits worn by the elves in Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer. Only green.
10 – Just like in Lord of the Rings with Gandalf, to make Buddy look so much bigger than the other elves they used forced perspective techniques rather than CGI. Having him sit closer to the camera than the others for example.
So there you have them folks!

We’ve just spotted something pretty darn extiging at Truffle Towers this week!

Combining two of our very favourite things about Christmas,(Christmas films and Christmas Jumpers of course!), the upcoming Seth Rogan, Joseph Gordon-Levitt and Anthony Mackie xmas flick is set to shake up everything you thought a Christmas film could be.

So what’s it all about? Well! The trio play longtime friends, Isaac, Ethan and Chris, who decide to bring their yearly Christmas Eve tradition to an end. Isaac is about to become a father, and Chris, a pro American football player, has become just too famous to casually hang out like they used to. The gang find themselves in a drug fueled night which goes as smoothly as you might imagine but is sure to be one hell of a ride!

Taking centre stage we we spotted one of our very own Christmas Jumpers from the mighty brand Cheesy Christmas Jumpers. And what a beauty it is!
Complete with an amazing all over print of reindeer, snowmen,snowflakes and candy canes, this fab Unisex Retro Boxing Day Mashup Christmas Jumper is sure to be a hit ant any Christmas event.
