  1. Happy Monday everyone! What a nice little challenge to start the week. All of the clue words were recycled classics, but the anagrams themselves were new. I had quite a time trying to figure out SESAME. And I seem to remember it giving me a fair amount of trouble the last time it was featured as well. I think it was the double S’s and E’s that threw me.

    It looks like it’s movie night for this young family. It was quite obvious to me that the movie they’ve just finished watching is “The Lion King.” There are a couple of other movies in the Lion King series that you’re probably not aware of as they were “direct-to-video” releases. One was called “The Lion King II: Simba’s Pride,” and the other was “The Lion King 1 1/2.” They’re both on Disney+ if you subscribe to that streaming service.

    There were plenty of details to enjoy in today’s panel. My favorite was how Jeff somehow managed to get the kids to look like younger versions of their parents. Splendid job! I also thought the small lion doll that the girl was petting was a nice touch too.

    The final solve was an anagram consisting of 10 letters. Four of them were vowels and six were consonants. The apostrophe in the layout, as well as the “Panthera leo” clue in the dialogue immediately brought LION’S to mind. The rest of the solve was a breeze with those letters removed. Have a marvelous Monday, and keep Jumbling!


    On a personal note, I’m donating another pint of blood today. This will be my third donation this year, and my seventh overall. I only mention it because summer is quickly approaching and it’s the hardest time of year for the Red Cross to recruit volunteer donors. Please consider making an appointment to donate if you’re well enough to do so. Just think, your life-saving donation might be the one that helps a little kid get out of the hospital and back home for movie night!

    • Bless your heart for being such a dedicated donor, Mike. I had an uncle who was Type B Negative. I think the Red Cross had his number on speed dial because he went every three months for years until he became too old to donate. You truly are a life saver. ❤️

      • Aww, thanks Betty. And just like your uncle, I’m Rh-negative too, except I’m A-.

        What I find interesting is that the Red Cross blood donor app tracks the location of your donation from start to finish. Most of my donations have been used in NH and MA hospitals, but my last one went to Stony Brook University Hospital in Stony Brook, NY. That’s quite a distance from me!

        • That’s really neat that you know where your blood donation goes. My uncle was pre computer age so really never knew where his donation ended up – just figured it was local. It must be very gratifying to know how many people you’ve helped.

    • Congratulations and keep up the good work. My husband has just made his 117th and is still going strong. Recognizing the need and the easy donation process is the start. Again, congratulations!!

      • Thanks for sharing that, Joyce. By my calculations, that’s well over 14 GALLONS. Good for him! My personal goal is 10 gallons, but the need is constant so I’ll continue to donate as long as I’m able to. 🙂

  3. Good Morning, Everyone…I hope this finds you well….

    🦁 Panthera Leo…Lion species, “Out of Africa”,
    I PLANT a lion’s image in my head, and I’m done ‘fer…
    The RATIO of man to beast, of course we have them beat,
    But unlike tiny SESAME seeds, they’re huge…we can’t compete…
    Life in the Jungle HECTIC? Rather it’s mostly quite serene,
    For this family, the “Lion King”…roaring success across the screen
    A Lion, fierce, magnanimous…he rules over his lair…
    “Ars Gratia Artis”…Leo’s part? He gets the LION’S SHARE! 🦁 **

    * 💫 THE MORE YOU KNOW 💫 “A -weema-weh’ is nonsensical verse, attributed to the mishearing the original song’s chorus of “Uyimbube”, which means “You’re a lion”…

  4. Just love it when puzzle makes reference to the main subject, without using that word…LION. So that was an easy giveaway to one of the words, and adding the apostrophe only made it that much easier. Three anagrams easy, but had to back in HECTIC. It was a good Jumble Monday

  5. Good morning. Not a normal Monday jumble. It was a little harder than usual. It took awhile to get Hectic and I remembered sesame from before. The cartoon answer was a breeze. Loved your song choice Angela. Until tomorrow stay well and stay safe.

    • Tks, Paul. Glad you enjoyed it. And wishing you stay well and safe too…🦁🙋🏻‍♀️

  6. 🎭 Worried that things might get HECTIC at the opening of “SESAME Street Live”, she was determined to PLANT her feet firmly on the ground and keep to a fair RATIO of tickets per group…to ensure that no one contingent would get the LION’S SHARE…🎭

    🥬 I like to cook with SESAME seeds, I add them to my rice,
    I PLANT my own and harvest them…with chicken they go nice…
    The RATIO to other herbs might be a little tame,
    Italian as I am it’s Basil that’s my claim to fame…
    The tending may get HECTIC, but I treat my herbs with care…
    I’m generous, I spread the wealth…but keep the LION’S SHARE! 🥬

  7. Hi Everybody – I agree the anagrams were difficult for a Monday. Sesame, which I had to back into, was my toughest. Some words from the past I recognize quickly, like Ratio, but others stump me multiple times. Not sure why.

  8. Anagrams seemed strange especially,sesame,though hectic was also problematic before the solve.I had lions in the second word ,which stumped me on solving share.In short,not a good start to the week.

  9. Sesame and hectic have tripped me up in the past but I got them this morning, though I thought they were both jumbled really well. Cartoon answer was a given and I too thought the drawing was particularly cute. Wishing all of you a good Monday.

  10. Hi all – Got the words, helped by the fact that I always try IC as a suffix when it’s available, even before trying TH and CH words, and this time it worked for HECTIC.
    I thought the answer might be something like “Mane attraction”, but the apostrophe and dialog showed it quickly.

    Good wishes to everyone.

    Nice song choices, Angela, and I really liked that bit of trivia – hadn’t heard that.

    “The chef had a HECTIC time getting the correct RATIO of SESAME to his other PLANT-based oils to get the taste just right before the banquet.”

      • Thanks Mike. Drawing on my vast culinary experience – I checked to make sure sesame oil was actually a thing 😂

    • Tks, Steve. And I think I might have blurred the details of this song with those of Lloyd Price’s. The racism vs the risqué. The “more you know” can become moot…if one doesn’t keep the “more” straight! 🤦🏻‍♀️

  11. I thought surely it would be about ” the real hiss” and then I was lost. Couldn’t remove hiss from any answer and just surrendered. Have a purr-fect and wonderful day all.
