Answer:  JAZZED UP

(Did this pun hit a sour note?  Nah!  Maybe a discordant note, here or there.  But, certainly not a sour note.  This jumble took about two seconds for me to solve.  I didn’t even have to read the cartoon, and I could tell what the answer was going to be.  A painless way to start the work week.  “I Don’t Like Mondays”!

All of today’s clue words are familiar old friends.  Three of the jumbles appear to be new, with “prizep” having definitely been used before.  It took a couple seconds for me to see “zodiac”.  The answer letter layout was a decent eight letter jumble.  I doubt it could me made more difficult.

Great drawing of the Count’s orchestra!  This looks like it could be the 1930s, or 1940s.  Perhaps The Cotton Club, in New York City, or maybe the Stage Door Canteen.  I’m sure some of our readers, in their 80s, have fond memories of the Big Band Era.  A little/lot before my time, but some of these big bands are still around today.  Not with the people who started them, of course, but the music itself seems to be eternal.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

    This Word Game amazed me in the superior speed in which I completed it! The answer came, JAZZED UP, after I noticed one “Z” in the Scrambles. Then, I knew the next Word before I wrote in the one above it^ This was sooo fascinating it deserves “Twilight Zone” time!!$((Happy, Easy Monday???$))

    I give credit to my breakfast invention of Rice
    Krispies with Fruity Pebbles mixed in from the top. (May I receive a Patent for this, even though the two products have been around, like forever??¿)

    Also, I was watching, dilentgently , Death Valley Days on EWSTN, “A Piano Goes West”
    {1959} during the aforementioned task…

    PS. UR, I have a project for you; Lookup the reason why/how the term “ZIPPERhead came into use for Asian people during/after the
    Korean War? This is a very derogatory remark
    to people of Asian persuasion to this day, (Especially too the older generation.) How it came into being is a very, very interesting bit of History☆

    PSs: I get a sense that you or someone close to you really liked/likes to listen to and/or see in person “Les Brown and His Band of Renown”
    One of the five greatest names for a Band or Group in the History of Music Entertainment!!♤s
