Annette Funicello

Yesterday, beloved Mouseketeer Annette Funicello died at the age of 70 after a long battle with multiple sclerosis. As a member of the original Mickey Mouse Club, Funicello quickly gained fame for her versatile talents. Funicello was just 13 when she was personally selected by Walt Disney himself to join the cast of the popular 1950s variety show.

Did you remember watching Annette Funicello on The Mickey Mouse Club?
