Captain Cleanup to the Rescue!

When Sparkle City is in trouble, only one flying fedora’d superhero answers the call, Captain Cleanup! (and his sidekick Kid Cool-It)


Captain Cleanup was the star of this amazing anti-littering PSA that ran in the late 1970s and by some accounts into the early 1980s. This animation style looks really familiar, but I am not sure who made these ads and were else I have seen it, although I am pretty sure it was in something else that was very popular.
