Pat Sharp

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?

It’s wacky! It’s fun! It’s cr-a-a-a-zy! It’s outrageous!!

We can hardly grasp it! The TV icon that raised us through the 80s is turning an amazing 26 years old today!

Yep way back in 1989, we were first introduced to one of the most loved places frankly in the world, The Fun House! It had everything, fun messy games (loved the gunge!), head to head school battles, questions, go-carts and of course (the guy who puts the fun into Fun House) Pat Sharp and his twin cheerleaders Mel and Martina. What more could we have possibly wanted??

Running for an impressive ten years, Fun House was THE kids show of the 90s and was the one place every kid wanted to visit and make as much mess as possible.

For those not in the know, Fun House consisted of two teams from separate schools who would battle it out in and around the Fun House to earn points. After each game there would be a series of questions that could also earn extra points for each team.

After three usually pretty messy games, it was time for the best thing on TV ever and what every kid wish they could do…the Fun-Kart grand Prix!

Each team would then battle it out on the track to collect bonus points before switching drivers. It was perfect!

From all of here at TruffleShuffle, we’d love to say a huuuuge Happy Birthday to Fun House and all of the amazing people who helped make our childhood that extra special including our retro hero Pat Sharp.

Why not celebrate in style with one of our exclusive Fun House T-Shirts featuring the theme tune and the iconic cast….

So what are your memories of this iconic show? Let us know bu leaving a comment below of sending us a tweet on @truffleshuffle_

It’s official folks! TruffleShuffle is now a whopping ten years old!! We can hardly believe it and it’s all gone way too fast!

We’d just like to say a massive THANK YOU to each and every one out there who has picked up something from our store, told your friends about us or even just got in touch on our social media. Without all of you being totally amazing we simply wouldn’t be where we are today.

So what would any self-respecting bunch of people do to celebrate this big event? Throw a huuuuge retro themed party of course which is just what we did back on Saturday the 8th. Taking place at Bristol’s creative hub The Paintworks, we couldn’t resist sharing a few choice snaps of our celebrations from our uber talented photographer, Jamie Corbin.

Our founders - Pat and Claire

Of course any party needs some decent security on the door. Thankfully we had some Stormtroopers on our side for the night keeping everything under control…

Dealing with some questionable guests came naturally to these guys. A huge TruffleShuffle thank to you to the amazing team at The UK Garrison for making our party a force to be reckoned with!

Once guests had started to arrive, the fun could really start and people quickly started to work their way through our huge list of retro (naturally) themed cocktails from the expert bartenders at Origami Events!

As well as a whole host of 80′s themed cocktails, we also had an amazing Hot Dog stand from the lovely folk at Relish! Nom nom nom…..

So with everyone fed and watered, the party could really start and who better to kick things off than our hero, the one, the only Timmy Mallett! Blaaaaaah!

Timmy even hosted an “Itsy Bitsy Teenie Weenie Yellow Polka Dot Bikini’ contest which went down a storm with all us 80s kids!

We then took a short break to hear from the guys who made it all possible, Pat and Claire, who had put together a short video with a little look back at TruffleShuffle’s humble beginnings and lots of thank you’s to everyone who helped us along the way – we’re hoping to get the vid on our About Us page soon so keep your eyes peeled for that!

Once all the thank you’s and teary stuff was covered, it didn’t take long for Timmy to bust out his legendary Pinky Punky and start bashing all of us on the head during our very own special edition of Mallets Mallet…

Even the Stormtroopers couldn’t resist some classic Timmy action!

The retro treats weren’t over there though! Our resident DJ for the night was the one and only Pat Sharp who took to the decks and blasted out a whole of of classic 80′s choons so we could put those dancing shoes to good use!

Couldn’t resist sneaking this shot in of our founder Pat with his hero Timmy….

We has such a blast and would also like to thank everyone who came along to celebrate with us, especially our legendary developer Jon who came all the way from New Zealand! A massive thank you also goes to the fabulous Olly from Enhanced Entertainment who took over on the decks when Pat had finished his set! Oh and last but not least – the totally awesome Marcus Rendle – our awesome event organiser! Check out his website for all your party planning needs!!

Here’s to another 10 years and an even bigger party !! :)
