Farewell…Annette Funicello



Annette Funicello, Actress

Actress-singer and Mickey Mouse Club icon Annette Funicello died from complications related to multiple sclerosis today. She was 70.

Funicello was 12 years old when she was reportedly hand-selected by Walt Disney to join The Mickey Mouse Club in 1955 as an original cast member. After her time on the show ended in 1959, Funicello stayed with Disney, appearing in TV shows including “Zorro” and “The Nine Lives of Elfego Baca.” She later attained teen idol status alongside Frankie Avalon in the “Beach Party” movie franchise.

Rest in Peace Annette.
