Answer:  SCENE BETTER DAYS

(For a few minutes, yesterday, this had me stumped!  I had no idea what they were getting at, and the quotation marks weren’t helping.  Especially, with the great answer letter layout!  I put it down, to do the Cryptoquote, and when I came back I was able to see it.  Great clue words.  We even had a new one, in “fennel”.  Ralis95 will have to add that to his world famous clue word database.  Surprisingly, all of the jumbles came up as new.  Now that I’m seeing the bigger Jumble I can see how fun the cartoon really is.  Nice job.  I think this was one of my first record albums.  I don’t think it was the original Broadway cast.  I think it was the studio version.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

Answer:  BALKED

(I sure hope bases weren’t loaded!  Great baseball pun.  I’m not going to explain, it unless somebody asks for an explanation.  All of today’s clue words are old favorites.  Two of the jumbles appear to be new, with “dunro” and “curnbh”  having been used before.  The answer letter layout was as good as a six-letter one can be.  If you’re not a baseball fan you may have struggled to get this.  So nice having a full sized cartoon!  The all-star is appropriately blasé, and the owner is an old-school, stereotypical, rich cowboy.  Sorta like Gene Autry.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR
