1963 Comet Cleaner

These ads always made me happy for a few reasons. They had Josephine the plumber. That is my mom's name and the Josephine character actually looks quite a bit like mom. The main reason was the tune it brought to mind, endlessly amusing to the <10 year old crowd:

It makes your mouth feel clean
It tastes like Lis-ter-ene
It makes you vomit!
So buy some Comet and vomit to-daaaaay!

I've actually seen a web page dedicated to that twiested jingle. There were many variations of it apparently. The one I put here would be the 1970 NY variation :)
