Krusty's Fun House, known as Krusty's Super Fun House on 16-bit consoles, is a platform puzzle game developed by Audiogenic Software and published by Acclaim.

It stars Krusty the Clown from the popular The Simpsons TV show, who is tasked to rid his fun house of rats. The clown must lead these rats into numerous traps set up by Homer and Bart Simpson, as well as Krusty's assistants Corporal Punishment and Sideshow Mel. The game was originally developed as Rat-Trap for the Amiga, without any ties to the Simpsons franchise, unlike other Simpsons games both before and after.

Krusty's Fun House was an early Simpsons game, debuting in 1992. As such, the characters had not been fully developed, so at this point Krusty was simply a happy smiling clown rather than a man haunted by addiction and a dark past.
