Answer:  PUT FOOD ON THE TABLE

(Starting off the New Year with a bang . . . and a brand new clue word!  I was a little surprised, but “hubcap” is not on the ralis95 clue word database.  Our good friend will have to update his world famous database for it.  All of today’s jumbles, with the exception of “ludfon”, came up as new.  HUBCAP gave me a tough time, but I was able to come up with it legitimately.  Very impressive answer letter layout.  Nothing obvious about it.  Fairly basic cartoon.  Looks like they have a tough life.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

Answer:  PARTY CRASHER

(Who remembers the Bump?  It was a pretty big dance, back in the ’70s!  Do you remember “The Bertha Butt Boogie”?  A very amusing Funk/novelty song from way back then.  Yet another song that would probably not make the light of day, if it were to come out today, but I have it on a Funk classics cd.  Good times.  No new clue words in this one, but all the jumbles seem to be a new.  The jumble “arktea” gave me a good amount of trouble.  The answer letter layout was a pretty good jumble also.  Cute cartoon too.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR
