Annette Funicello


Annette Funicello Trivia


  • Trivia

    • When Al Gilbert, Annette's dance instructor, mentioned to her mother that the part Walt Disney wanted Miss Funicello to audition for on The Mickey Mouse Club would be called a Mouseketeer, Annette's mother misunderstood. Thinking Gilbert had said "Musketeer," Mrs. Funicello couldn't imagine what Disney wanted with a twelve-year-old girl, and was initially quite adamant about the proposal.
