RIP Annette...RIP

"Los Angeles (CNN) -- Annette Funicello, one of the best-known members of the original 1950s "Mickey Mouse Club" and a star of numerous 1960s "beach party" films, died Monday at a California hospital, the Walt Disney Co. said.

Funicello, who was 70, "died peacefully from complications due to multiple sclerosis, a disease she battled for over 25 years," the Disney statement said."

RIP Annette

ps. Hands up who's old enough to have actually watched her on mickey mouse club? (We're talking black and white broadcast on mammoth-sized fuzzy 2-13-channel VHF setup, no remote, placed next to the aircraft carrier-sized quadraphonic Hifi cabinet with turntable and 8-track, powering tiny-magnet newspaper-thin speakers. Sweet.)
