Mr. Clean gets rid of dirt and grime and grease in just a minute, Mr. Clean will clean your whole house and everything that’s in it. Mr. Clean Mr. Clean. Mr. Clean.”

In his television career, Peters Jr. appeared in shows like “Perry Mason“, “The Twilight Zone“, and “Gunsmoke“.

The animated version of the Mr. Clean image is still used today.
