Answer:  PRODUCE PRODUCE

(Good stuff.  Though, it was kind of familiar.  There were no new clue words, but four of the jumbles were new, to me.  We’ve seen both “dropan” and “gleped” before.  And, “accent” is one of those words that spells out in alphabetical order.  The answer letter layout was nicely cryptic, but the letters made the answer fairly obvious, for me.  Maybe, for you too?  A fine cartoon.  A little of this and a little of that.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR
