Answer:  QUIET AS A MOUSE

(I like it!  Great pun.  No new clue words, but three of the jumbles appear to be new.  We’ve seen “smopt” before.  Impressive answer letter layout.  Nicely cryptic jumble.  The cartoon is a classic!  Minnie, sound asleep in the Barca-lounger, while a Mighty Mouse movie is playing.  And Mickey sneaking in after a night of . . . tom catting?  Very amusing.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

    Good one today. I thought the Mighty Mouse on TV was a good touch.

    MIGHTY MOUSE on the TV screen really was a nice touch! What else would mice be watching? Thanks, Jeff, it made me chuckle!

    Very nice clue, and very poor on my part. The word Mickey in the clue should have immediately clued me in to MOUSE, but it didn’t. I tried ‘IN A’ for the middle words, only to realize there was no N. After 10-15 seconds of thought, I figured that the middle words were ‘AS A’. Right around then, the answer struck me. On the bright side, I had no trouble with any of the clue words. Lovely cartoon!
