Mr. Sparkle (ミスタースパーコル Misutasupakoru), known in Japanese as Misutā Supākoru, is a Japanese dishwashing detergent mascot who bears a strong resemblance to Homer.


Homer thought that the company was using his likeness without his permission so after Akira translated for him that he was made in the "sacred forests" of Hokkaido and called the soap factory. A video from Mr. Sparkle's manufacturers explained it came from combining a cartoon fish and lightbulb. To sum up the explanation provided by the video, Bart says to Homer, "There's your answer, fishbulb."[1]

A Mr. Sparkle Garden Hose Toy was sold in Cockamamie's.[2]

Mr. Sparkle appeared in The Simpsons Game, when the Simpsons enter the videogame world and Homer and Lisa enter a game featuring Mr. Sparkle, where they have to help him clean up a Japan-style world by clearing several levels. He commits suicide towards the end of the game for dishonoring his ancestors.
