(I say there were three puns in the cartoon setting up this jumble gag.  Besides “riveting” and “jeanius” . . . overall could have quote marks around it.  After all, they make – or at least made – overalls, as well as pants.  Great clue words, nicely jumbled.  Surprisingly, the word “matter” is new to the Jumble.  ralis95 can add this to his clue word database.  The answer letter layout was exquisite!  And, the cartoon was a great period piece.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR
