Answer:  MONKEE BUSINESS

 

(Hey!  Hey!  This is right out of my childhood.  I was a huge fan.  It didn’t matter to me that they were a contrived, made for TV band.  They were young and funny.  And, their songs were very catchy.  There was something to like about each of them.  Davey was the cute one: pretty boy looks, short, and a British accent.  Mickey was the handsome, but rubber-faced clown.  Peter was the loveable oddball.  And, Mike was the level-headed, All-American country boy.  He kind of had to play Moe to the other 3 stooges.  Mickey was my favorite.  Initially, almost all their songs were written by Boyce & Hart and Neil Diamond, but later on they wrote more of their own.  People did, and still do, question their talent as a band, but they were unquestionably a well orchestrated and successfully marketed phenomenon.

 

No new clue words today.  ralis95 can rest easy.  But, all of the jumbles came up as new, for me.  I was able to get them all immediately.  The answer letter layout was really a first class effort.  A truly great big jumble, that gave nothing away.  For me though, the answer was pretty obvious.  Like I said earlier, this one was right in my wheelhouse.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR
