- Peters' most memorable role came as Mr. Clean — a muscular man with a bald head, a hoop earring and a no-nonsense attitude toward dirt and grime. From the late 1950s and into the early 1960s, Peters Jr. helped advertise the famous household cleaner with the trademark jingle, "Mr. Clean, Mr. Clean."
Here's a clip of the first Mr. Clean commercials. Unfortunately, it is the animated version. So far, I have been unable to locate the Mr. Clean commercial with Peters featured.
