Roundhouse is an American comedy-variety television series that aired on Nickelodeon from 1992 through 1994.[1]


Roundhouse debuted as a part of the original SNICK lineup on Nickelodeon in 1992 and continued airing on the network through the end of 1995.[2]

Each episode revolved around the Anyfamily and their problems in daily life. The half-hour show, taped in front of a visible live audience, was broken up into sketches, dance sequences, and musical performances by both cast members and the house band. After everything is resolved story-wise, a cast member (or everyone in the final episode) would yell the words "Reprise the Theme Song and Roll the Credits"; the cast then sang the opening theme a cappella and closed the show with a dance number.
