    Former Mouseketeer Annette Funicello dies at 70

    Former Mouseketeer Annette Funicello dies at 70 - MSN TV News

    Annette Funicello, the 1950s and '60s-era Mickey Mouse Club Mouseketeer who went on to star in a variety of beach movies with Frankie Avalon, has died from complications related to multiple sclerosis. She was 70.

    Actress Annette Funicello, long-time Disney and Beach Party star, passed away on Monday April 8 at Mercy Southwest Hospital in Bakersfield, CA, at the age of 70. She died peacefully from complications due to Multiple Sclerosis, a disease she battled for over 25 years. Beloved by television viewers in the 50s for her stint on Disney's original "The Mickey Mouse Club," and by film buffs for her numerous roles in a series of popular teen-oriented movies in the 60s, Funicello became a pop culture icon

    yea, this news really makes me feel my age
    as a very young kid, the walt disney program was IT for me, a TV addict. went from mouse ears to davey crockett coonskin cap
    Annette was obviously special among a cast of talented mouseketeers
    Shelly Fabres, her best friend, displaced her as my pre-teen love interest over time
    but these gals set the bar for the women i would look for once i became of age
    thanks for the many, many fond memories, Annette Funicello. rest in peace

    So her only claim to fame was being a Mouseketeer?

    We really never are going to get Lindsay Lohan out of our lives are we?

    There is no comparison between Annette Funicello and the most likely new member of the 27 Club. Annette was the idol of little girls everywhere, and although she never saw herself as a singer, she did have several hits back in her day.

    More important, when her husband cheated on her, she said nothing and behaved like a lady, and when she was diagnosed with MS, she kept that private too until persuaded to speak publicly to help others.

    How crast this generation has become when you compare a high class REAL lady like Annette Funicello who did movies as well as sing, to a drugged out whore who squandered her life away?

    Maybe I was talking about the shelf-life of Disney celebrities. You just never know.
