M-I-C “See you real soon” Annette Funicello


Not that I was born in 1950s, but I remember watching Annette Funicello movies over and over again.  She was best known for  being a member of the Mickey Mouse Club in the 1950s.  But, she did not stop at the Mickey Mouse Club she also went on to do movies and recorded about 40 hits.  She was diagnosed with multiple sclerosis, a degenerative neurological disease since 1987.  She battled this disease for a long time but you always saw a smile on her when she interviewed.

Annette Funicello represented an all-American girl with a spunky, perky and bubbly personality.  I am just happy to have enjoyed her TV personality and sad to hear the end of this era.  The 1960s was a time when everything seemed so simple and not so complicated the way things are now.  It was also a time when celebrities actually had their own privacy as opposed to having all these paparazzi now.  There was some kind of normality back in those days but I just feel like now anyone uploads videos without consent or respect for privacy.

Anette Funicello will forever be remembered and cherished.
