Comments: This record was later released as DQ-1229 in
1962 with an alternate cover and title of
"Songs from the Mickey Mouse Club Serials." The
contents of both records are the same. The title to this
record refers to the "Annette" TV serial and not the
actress/singer of the same name. The Disney Cast includes Annette
Funicello, Jimmie Dodd, Buddy Ebsen, Darlene Gillespie, David
Stollery, Time Considine, Triple R Cast and Studio Chorus.
Annette Funicello was born on October 22, 1942 in Utica, New
York and died on April 8, 2013 in Bakersfield, California.
To Disney fans, Annette is best known as one of the original
Mouseketeers on the Disney television show "The Mickey
Mouse Club," that first aired in October of 1955. In
1958, she starred in her own serial, "Annette," that
ran for a total of 19 episodes as part of final season of "The Mickey Mouse
Club." In the show, Annette played a
young farm girl transitioning to an upper-class neighborhood.
