Sadly, we have another passing to report. Eternal teen Annette Funicello passed away this morning at age 70, after a long struggle with multiple sclerosis. She and Timothy both appeared in Bikini Beach (1964), Beach Blanket Bingo (1965), and Head (1968), never sharing a scene together, unfortunately. Here is a little something I’ve posted before but bears repeating today. It’s a promotional radio interview by Dick Strout for Head that features both Timothy and Annette in separate interviews.
Annette will always be the queen of that never-ending beach party in the sky. Rest well, and thanks.
Rest in peace, Annette!
Let’s tip our hats to Jimmie Dodd, Roy Williams, Bob Amsberry, Annette Funicello, Doreen Tracey, Cheryl Holdridge, Don Agrati, Dickie Dodd, Bonnie Lynn Fields, Charley Laney, Mike Smith, and Tim Rooney have gone to the great Mickey Mouse Club in the sky.
