No one ever said Movember — the month in which decent looking men transform into scruff monsters or Dali-esque caricatures — was just for real people.
The 54-year-old Mr. Clean made a Facebook pledge to grow a moustache to support prostate cancer research by growing a moustache for the first time ever.

The persona has been tracking “progress” on Facebook, and it’s pretty weird.
Although Mr. Clean is the only cartoon spokesperson to officially do Movember (that we know about) design blog Brand New put Team Brand Mustache’s logos (unsurprisingly, mustaches) on other favourite cartoon brand ambassadors.
