Answer:  BUGABOOS

(I kind of expected some hyphens with this answer.  As in BUG-A-BOOS.  The definition of the word definitely makes the answer work.  But, I think it might’ve been punnier with the hyphens.  It’s definitely not that common a word.  I’m wondering if this was a difficult solve for some who aren’t that familiar with the word?  There were no new clue words today, but three of the jumbles came up as new.  The guys have used “logio” before.  The answer letter layout didn’t give anything away.  The cartoon is a little reminiscent of the CBS summer series:  Brain Dead.  It was a very amusing story about extraterrestrial ants eating the brains of Washington politicians.  It was smart and quirky, with a great cast  The heroine of the story was played by Mary Elizabeth Winstead.  An extremely attractive actress.  I know I missed a few episodes, and probably even the finale.  Maybe I can Hulu it!  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR
