Answer:  APPARENT TO ALL

(Happy Father’s Day to the other half of the parenting dynamic!  Mine has been gone 17 years now, and sadly I can’t remember ever having actually celebrated the day with him.  I know I probably sent him a card, and of course I called him on the phone.  Part of it was just the physical distance, especially as an adult.  But the other distance was an emotional one that was the result of my parents’ divorce when I was very young.  We made up for that when I was 33, and had a healthy relationship from then on, but in some ways I’ve always felt a little cheated.  I’d like to think that in some ways I’ve made up for that with my own kids.  I can’t point to any specific accomplishment, but at least I’ve always been there for them.  Hopefully, that’s been enough.

No new clue words today.  Five of the jumbles appear to be new, but we’ve definitely seen “tecoip” in the past.  The only one I had any trouble with was “medair”.   The answer letter layout was a thrilling thirteen letter jumble.  Nicely cryptic.  I saw TO ALL, and then the rest became APPARENT.

Super cartoon!  The dad is very animated.    The kids range from blasé to pretty clueless.  One of them was close at least.  But the original “Karate Kid” movie is going on 38 years now, so we gotta give the kids some slack.   Good Jumble, guys!  Happy Father’s Day to David and Jeff!  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

Answer:  LOOKED UP TO HIM

(A very nice Father’s Day pun.  I don’t hear anybody groaning today!   We actually have a brand new clue word today, in “darker”.  Our good friend, ralis95, will need to update his world famous clue word database for this.  Both “uncope” and “miceno” have been used as jumbles before, but the other four seem to be new.  I thought that “situha” was the most difficult.  I had to back into it.

The answer letter layout was a very cryptic jumble also.  If the answer wasn’t as apparent as it was, I think the answer letter layout would have kept you guessing for a while.

Fine cartoon.  Dads don’t like it when you make a fuss over them.  Make a fuss over them anyway.  Happy Father’s Day, to all our dads, with us or not!  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

Answer:  FATHER FIGURING

(Believe it, or not, I did NOT go directly to FATHER, despite the fairly obviousness of the subject.  I was looking at NATURE and NATURING, and even NUTURING – thinking NURTURING – even though there was only one U.  Finally, the Fs kind of kicked in, but I think I actually got FIGURING before FATHER.  Weird.

We actually have a new clue word today, in “gritty”.  I hope ralis95 can break away from his Father’s Day activities, to read this, and then update his world famous clue word database.  And, all of the jumbles came up as new today.  Kind of a rarity for a Sunday.  Once again, I spelt “gravel” incorrectly, but fortunately the last two letters of the clue word were irrelevant.  Somebody needs to explain it to me.  Is there a rule for words that end in either EL, or LE?  Sort of like the I before E, except after C rule . . . that doesn’t always seem to hold true anyway?  Does it have to do with the V, or is there more to it?  I think, from what I wrote above, that the answer letter layout speaks for itself.  It wasn’t obvious to this Simple Simon!  That cartoon does look very familiar.  LOL!  Be well and do good, friends.  Don’t forget your dads!)   —   YUR
