Meet the Scrub Club
The fearless and spotless leader of the Scrub Club®, Ship-Shape, monitors the hands of the world’s children by scouring the Earth with his bubble telescope. When he finds BAC on somebody’s hands, he calls on the Scrub Club® to spring into action.

Scruff makes sure that you don’t forget your fingernails.

Tank and his ever-present milkshake remind you to rinse away all the soap.
