I liked the theme on this one; it was not too gimmicky like so many Sunday NYT puzzles are. At least it was original. However, I didn't think the clues were particularly clever. Plus, it was easier than most - bit too easy for a NYT Sunday. I whipped through the first half in record time, but got bogged down a bit in the lower right area at the end. I remembered the Yellow Polka Dot Bikini song wrong - as TEENSY, and I've never seen TEENY spelled TEENIE, which contributed to a problem there before I figured it out.
