Answer:  PATIENCE

(Reminds me a little of that show from the ’90s, Northern Exposure!  I always liked that show.  It was another of those fish out of water tales.  Sorta like The Beverly Hillbillies, or Third Rock From the Sun, but it was an hour long semi-drama.  And, instead of it being a family from elsewhere, trying to understand conventional American culture, it was a – mainly – conventional American – a nice Jewish boy from Brooklyn – trying to understand a quirky, but fairly diverse, rural Alaskan town.  It starred Rob Morrow, as newly minted Dr. Joel Fleischman, and Janine Turner and John Corbett.  Lots of fun characters on the show!

All of today’s clue words are old friends, and only two of the jumbles are coming up as new.  Not sure if I mentioned this before, but “knotty” is one of those words that spells out alphabetically.  The answer letter layout wasn’t obvious to me.  The cartoon’s dialog and the clue/question set up the answer very well.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

    Today, I got the answer before I even got started on the regular words. Except I spelled it wrong in the first go (PATIENTS vs PATIENCE). Once I apportioned out the letters, I found the mistake. Knotty took a bit of time to sort out, but it was the word that fixed the mistake. 🙂

    That’s the main reason for solving the Jumble in an orderly fashion, my friend. Un-jumble the clue words first, assemble the circled letters, THEN look at the cartoon and clue/question. A lot of these Jumbles CAN be solved by going straight to the cartoon, but you miss out on the total Jumble experience that way. AND, you don’t make incorrect assumptions when you go systematically. — YUR
