ICKY TWERP TRAILER

SOME MEN NEVER STOP PRETENDING Icky Twerp: The Electronic Babysitter is a peculiar cinematic experience in honor of a peculiar man, Bill Camfield, a popular television personality in Texas in the 1950′s through the 80′s. This is the true life story of a larger than life character, a Texas icon and a television pioneer. It was fifty years ago when Slam Bang Theater first aired. Now, you are invited to Icky Twerp’s Slam Bang Theater once again for a glimpse into Bill Camfield’s tragic and heartbreaking personal life and a nostalgic celebration of the singular brand of comedy, mystery and horror Bill Camfield brought to a generation of Texans.

    I enjoyed the article in The Dallas Morning News today about Slam Bang Theater’s Icky Twerp. I remember watching this Chanel 11 TV show when I was a kid. Boy my mother hated us kids to watch this show! Though I’m 58 years old I can still remember his apes, Dephinium and Ajax.

    This is awesome!

    I originally taped that special on Icky Twerp back in the day but I’d love to get it on DVD or something.

    Thanks again for the great trip down memory lane, richardallankent!
