Answer:  KEEP IT UNDER HIS HAT

(Verrry loooong answer today!  17 letters!  Very literal pun though.  That might have thrown some of you.  All of the clue words were old favorites today, and four of the jumbles were new.  We’ve definitely seen both “toshoe” and “herdin” before.  I thought the answer letter layout was very impressive.  A wonderfully long jumble that gave away nothing.  The cartoon was pretty standard fare today.  Not bad, just not great.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR
