The opening title credits read "Arch Oboler's Production of The Twonky." Contemporary news items in Motion Picture Herald and Hollywood Reporter reported that the release of The Twonky, which was produced in 1952, was held up due to production of another Oboler film, Bwana Devil. The copyright statement in the Copyright Catalog indicates that although the copyright year is 1953, the notice submitted by the production was dated 1952. No official release date is listed in contemporary sources. In a modern interview, Sid Pink, a former member of Arch Oboler Productions, Inc., noted that the film, which cost approximately $300,000 to make, had only three theatrical exhibitions when it was released.
