    Please forgive if already posted...

    But Annette Funicello, 68, suffered a terrible house fire. She was hospitalized for smoke inhalation. Sadly, the video I watched in the Orlando Sentinel said she has lost virtually ALL of her memorabilia :sad1:

    If anyone knows how to reach her, I'd love to send her a card. She has been an inspiration from MOUSEKETEER days, thru Beach Blanket Bingo with Frankie Avalon & even her PETER PAN PEANUT BUTTER commercials.

    Blessings, Annette! :littleangel:

    You could send it to:

    Disney Studios
    500 S. Buena Vista Street
    Burbank, CA. 91506

    I'm very sure they'll forward it.

    This is sad news. She is a fine lady and if anyone is a Disney "person" it is certainly Annette.

    Poor lady. When is she going to catch a break?

    Wow -she really is in very sad condition, in fact shocking if you compare it to the dancing, singing brunette of decades ago.

    It's interesting that it took a Canadian TV Network to open the door to her present life; the American media have pretty much forgotten her.

    And Disney -- where she has an enormous legacy (not just the Mouseketeer era but also her years of recording, her efforts singlehandedly got the Disney Buena Vista record label off the ground) -- hasn't done much of anything in over twenty years to recognize or acknowledge her. Yes, she got inducted into the Legends way back in 1992, but since then Disney rarely, rarely refers to her and when they have just as a vintage relic (no references whatsover to her fate or present situation).
