Jumble Spoiler – 01/21/21

Celebrating M*A*S*H, Now 30 Years Gone - Kittysneezes

Visual Description:  Downtime at our favorite M*A*S*H unit.

ELHVA  =  HALVE,  GNSIE  =  SINGE,  PRUTIN  =  TURNIP,  TBINTE  =  BITTEN   —   Giving us:  HAESINTNIBTT

Clue/Question:  The mobile living quarters seen on the TV show “M*A*S*H”were home to – – –

Mash Logos

Answer:  INHABITTENTS

(At the time that the show went off the air, I believe that it was the longest running sit/com of all time, at eleven years.  But that was a long time ago, in 1983!  I loved the show.  It was funny and irreverent, with a great cast of characters.  And, even though it took place during the Korean Conflict it was decidedly anti-war.  It didn’t play quite as well with the more conservative crowd.

All of the clue words were familiar old friends.  Three of the jumbles came up as new, but we’ve definitely seen “prutin” before.  It was also the only one to give me pause.  I guess I’m not a fan of turnips!  The answer letter layout was a tantalizing twelve letter jumble.  It hid the final answer nicely.  The quotation marks and the hyphen in the final answer slots were the big clues for me.

Great “M*A*S*H” mock-up cartoon!  This must be from season four on, as it’s B.J. Hunnicutt and Benjamin Franklin “Hawkeye” Pierce who are in the tent, while Walter “Radar” O’Reilly tries to delay a testy looking – extra – MP.  A total of seven of the actors who played characters on the show have passed on, while six of them are still with us.  The actors playing the three mentioned characters are thankfully still with us.  Always fun going down memory lane!  Grape Nehis for everyone!  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

    If you want to see a funny comedy bit about turnips, look up ‘John Pinette and turnips’.

    The Adventures of Ozzie and Harriet ran for 14 years from 1952 to 1966. As far as I know it is the longest (live..not animated like the Simpsons) running sitcom of all time, at least as far as I know.

    Wow! I stand corrected! Nice find, Bob. I didn’t even know ABC was a going concern that far back. When I was a little kid in Rochester, NY, in the early ’60s our ABC affiliate was the new kid on the block. The NBC and CBS affiliates were more established. I remember the show, but I thought I was seeing re-runs!
