Answer:  SHOWED HIM UP

(I hate when that happens!  Pretty good pun.  No new clue words today, but two of the jumbles are new.  We’ve definitely seen “rumon” and “curpes” before.  Nicely cryptic answer letter layout.  Nothing obvious there.  Fun cartoon.  “Up, up and away in my beautiful, my beautiful balloon!”  Great later ’60s pop tune!  I’ll provide a Youtube link.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR
