CrossWorld buzz: Very good. Good mod era thematic density. The theme provokes...Why are all those boy animals connected to kinda dopy things? Did "stagflation" work as a neologism back in the 70s partly for that reason? What about girl animals?...ahem. Shape of grid is interesting. Theme loses some cred w/ insiders b/c of the jaded "this has been done lots" feeling that cognoscenti get along w/ their/our puzzle union cards.
CrossOver buzz: Excellent. An even better puzz for real people than for insiders b/c ya don't have to carry the weight of feeling that the theme is intensely familiar.
