Clue/Question:  The most popular sitcom episodes featuring the Brady family were the – – –

That iconic horse statue from the Brady Bunch house has a witchy history

Answer:  BEST OF THE BUNCH

(Probably one of the most memorable episodes of that iconic sitcom from the late 1960’s – 1974!  Along with Jan’s “Marcia, Marcia, Marcia” rant, and the football breaking Marcia’s nose episodes.  I was a tween/teen when the show was on, so I thought it was pretty dopey.  But I did – like millions of other guys – have a pretty big crush on Maureen McCormick!  Not as big as my crushes on Shirley Jones . . . or Peggy Lipton, but “Marcia” was definitely crush-able.  And, now that I’m an older – not necessarily more mature – man, I have a crush on Peggy’s daughter, Rashida Jones.  If anyone out there was worried about my liking old musicals too much, rest assured that I will always bat for my own team!

All of today’s clue words are on the ralis95 clue word database.  Two of the jumbles are coming up as new, for me.  But we’ve definitely seen both “ucone” and “lysyh” in previous Jumbles.  The answer letter layout is an elegant eleven letter jumble.  It did a fine job of disguising the final answer.

Great cartoon of a family watching an old re-run of “The Brady Bunch”.  That’s a fine Peter Brady, aka Christopher Knight, on the screen.  Jeff Knurek also gives a nice little send up to the horse statue that the Brady’s had in their living room!  I didn’t realize that it was also in many office scenes in “Bewitched”!  I’m not sure if that was in Darrin’s office, or his boss Larry Tate’s office.  Now that was a show that I always found more entertaining!  And, Elizabeth Montgomery – especially as the bad cousin, Serena – definitely crush-able!  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR
