Cheetah, said to be Tarzan's sidekick chimp in 1930's, has died at the  astonishing age of 80 – The John Carter Files

Answer:  CREATURE COMFORTS

(An awesome Jumble pun!  As an old-time fan of the Johnny Weissmuller “Tarzan” movies I was jazzed to see use of the name Cheetah.  Although, I don’t remember any explanation why Tarzan named his chimpanzee after one of the big cats.  Maybe Cheetah outsmarted a cheetah, or something.  He was a very clever chimp!  Kind of like Lassie of the jungle.

All too familiar clue words this day.  Five of the jumbles did come up as new, for me.  However, we have definitely seen “sitimf” before.  The only one I had to look at a few times was “tpreen”.  Gambling, poetry, and religious terms are all kind of in my blind spot.  I eventually get them, just not immediately.  The answer letter layout was a spectacular sixteen letter jumble!  I think the combination of the clue/question’s leading nature, and the final answer slots being 8 and 8 clued me right in.

Very entertaining cartoon!  The customers are a giraffe, a lion, and a toucan.  Cheetah must be in his office, as it looks like he has monkeys as his sales people.  Cheetah actually lived a little longer than Johnny did!  80 to 79.  Nice African Acacia trees in the distance, out the door.  Back to Tarzan though.  I always thought that Maureen O’Sullivan was a babe!  One of my earliest crushes.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR
