Farewell to the Pineapple Princess

Written by: Robert Pettit

As an original Mousketeer, you garnered some fame. A generation of youngsters knew you by name. From a little girl, you grew on television and the movies. Success seemed to come in blowing like the breeze. In a bikini with a surfboard on the beach, you were such an attractive brunette peach. Even though time caught up to you, and you passed away, we can still see you in reruns up to this day. Annette Funicello (1942-2013)
