A staple of afternoon entertainment for those in Dallas/Ft. Worth
One of the best things about growing up was when I spent the summers with my great-grandparents in Weatherford, just west of Ft. Worth and was able to watch Slam Bang Theater in the afternoons on their old black and white set. One staple of the show was "The Three Stooges." "Nyuk, nyuk, nyuk!" If my feeble mind is recollecting correctly, it seems that every once in awhile, there would be a "Felix the Cat" or "Popeye, the Sailor" cartoon.
Ah, the good life, being eight years old and watching all the hilarity available on Channel 11, one of the early independent stations that filled it hours with old movies and syndicated TV shows. Of course, there was only one show I couldn't miss each afternoon. "Slam Bang Theater," and the host "Icky Twerp!"
