FILE - A 1955 file photo of Annette Funicello, a "Mouseketeer" on Walt Disney's TV series the "Mickey Mouse Club." Funicello: The original superstar Mouseketeer, she was the picture of wholesome adorableness during the show's primary run in the 1950s, and she's maintained that sunny persona throughout her life. She went on to star in several Disney pictures, including "The Shaggy Dog" and "Babes in Toyland." But she most famously appeared alongside Frankie Avalon in all those beach movies of the early 1960s, along with recording several top-40 pop singles. (AP Photo/ho, File)
