To those who grew up in the Fort Worth/Dallas metroplex in the 1960s and early '70s, the mere mention of the name "Icky Twerp" brings a smile of fond remembrance. As the host of Slam Bang Theater on Fort Worth's independent, local, non-network-affiliated channel 11, he delighted youngsters with his slapstick shenanigans in live broadcasts five days a week.

But Bill Camfield, the man who created and portrayed Icky Twerp (along with many other memorable characters) was much more than a TV kiddie show host. He was a man of many talents, tremendous character, and extraordinary creativity. The Slam Bang Story is the story of a man who rose from hardscrabble beginnings and endured great personal tragedies to achieve a fondly remembered legacy of joy and laughter.
