Das Spielhaus (The Playhouse) was a popular puppet theatre television series that played on the second channel of Deutscher Fernsehfunk in the former East Germany.

The eight residents of a mobile house with twelve wheels experienced fantastic adventures together. The character Knollo often created inventions that ended in explosions, while Schlapper was more sceptical and timid. Together with the vain Defifé and the brilliant Masine, the series featured other colourful characters.
