With a net worth of $15 million, Annette Funicello has had a career to be proud of. In addition to her net worth, she's produced a body of work that's entertained and delighted audiences over several decades and has done a lot of good as a philanthropist and spokesperson for the cause of multiple sclerosis. Her career in show business began at the age of 12, when she was discovered by none other than Walt Disney during a performance of the ballet Swan Lake in Burbank, CA. He personally selected her as one of the original Mouseketeers for his TV program The Mickey Mouse Club - she was the only one of the Mouseketeers to be hand-picked by Walt Disney himself. While on that program, Funicello appeared in numerous sketches, musical numbers, and serials. After The Mickey Mouse Club, Funicello continued to work for Disney, appearing in Disney TV shows like Zorro and in Disney movies such as The Shaggy Dog and The Misadventures of Merlin Jones. She also had a brief musical career with Disney before her contract came to an end in the 1960s, achieving lasting fame in a series of "beach party" movies for American International Pictures with her famous co-star Frankie Avalon.
Annette Joanne Funicello (born October 22, 1942) is an American singer and actress. She was Walt Disney's most popular cast member of the original Mickey Mouse Club, and went on to appear in a series of beach party films.
Annette Joanne Funicello was born in Utica, New York, to Italian-Americans Joseph and Virginia Funicello. Her family moved to Southern California when she was four years old. Funicello took dancing and music lessons as a child to overcome shyness. In 1955, the 12-year-old was discovered by Walt Disney when she performed as the Swan Queen in Swan Lake at a dance recital in Burbank, California. Disney cast her as one of the original "Mouseketeers". She was the last to be selected, and the only one personally picked by Walt Disney himself. She proved to be very popular and by the end of the first season of Mickey Mouse Club, she was receiving 6,000 letters a month, according to her Disney Legends biography.
In addition to appearing in many Mouseketeer sketches and dance routines, Funicello starred in several serials on The Mickey Mouse Club. These included Adventure in Dairyland, Walt Disney Presents: Annette (which co-starred Richard Deacon), and the second and third Spin and Marty serials - The Further Adventures of Spin and Marty and The New Adventures of Spin and Marty. In a hayride scene in the Annette serial, she performed the song that launched her singing career. The studio received so much mail about "How Will I Know My Love" (lyrics by Tom Adair, music by Frances Jeffords and William Walsh), that Walt Disney issued it as a single, and gave Funicello (somewhat unwillingly) a recording contract.
After the Mickey Mouse Club, she remained under contract with Disney for a time, with television roles in Zorro, Elfego Baca and The Horsemasters. For Zorro she played Anita Campillo in a three-episode storyline about a teen-aged girl who arrives in Los Angeles to visit a father who does not seem to exist. This role was reportedly a birthday p
