In honor of everyone’s favorite Mouseketeer, Annette Funicello, who passed away yesterday, April 8, 2013, I am adding an extra post. I grew up watching the original Mickey Mouse Club on the Disney Channel, and I saw all the beach blanket movies with my Dad, who is one of her biggest fans. My favorite movie of hers is Babes In Toyland. I have many of her songs, including The Parent Trap and Monkey’s Uncle, on my iPod. She was a symbol of the magic of Disney.
Many blogs are remembering her, but I liked the photo montage found at the Disney Parks Blog. Click here to watch Annette grow up. She will always be treasured.
Goofy Trivia: She is honored in many different ways, but the craziest is at Muppet*Vision 3D at Disney’s Hollywood Studios. As you are waiting to go into the theater look over your head. There you will see “a net full of jello.” Wakka Wakka.
