Time for another crossword here on Trash Panda Puzzles! It’s been a quiet week so far in my neck of the woods aside from a few blips with the power at my house. I’ll be honest, I’m tired of this extreme heat (90F+) that we’ve had so much this summer. I’m ready for snow (don’t tell my friends or family) and I cannot wait for a streetlight-lit evening with large fluffy flakes gently floating to the ground. (Something must be wrong with me; I hate the cold.)

Any who, today’s crossword grid is another 15x15 themeless puzzle. You’ll notice that 20-Across is not one of my seed words (words I put in the grid before my software helps me fill in the rest of the words), but it is from my personal word list. Is it a deep cut to a cartoon show that premiered 20 years ago and only ran for 5 years? Yes, yes it is.
