Yeah, Skippy commercials. That's exactly where I know her from most prominently. I'm 39.

I kinda thought you'd have to live under a rock to not know who Annette Funnyjello is. Guess not.

Guys that were in 6th grade during the Mickey Mouse club days knew who Annette was. She was the mousketeer with bumps in her sweater. This was a regular topic of admiring discussion on the playground back in the day.
The beach movies were part of the horrid teenage movie industry of the 60's. Beach movies,biker movies, Elvis movies, pop musician movies, crap horror movies (such as I was a teenage Frankenstein). Good thing most were watched or not watched at drive ins.

I must admit I actually shed a tear when I heard this. But that was probably because I felt that part of my youth had died today, as much as the fact that she had passed. Here is a video I really like with her in it. She's not singing in the video, but the clips of her fit the song perfectly. RIP Annette. You were a one of a kind.



Oh and Geezer, from your comments above, you will probably like the pic at the 2:28 mark. :wink:

I know me and my pals transitioned to being more interested in Annette than the cowboy stuff shown on the Mickey Mouse club; Spin & Marty, Texas John Slaughter,etc

Chilly Billy Cardille; Pittsburgh legend and Channel 11's man for all seasons. He did Studio Wrestling, and at times the wether, fill-in as weekend anchor, reporter in addition to Chiller Theater. When channel 11 did Steeler preseason football in the 70's he was at Three Rivers stadium at half time with Terminal Stare and some of the rest of his crew.

When I was overseas in the Army we used to get free movies shown at times. We were watching Night of the Living Dead and I'm shocked to see Bill Cardille playing a news reporter covering zombie attacks. I yelled to my buddies"That's Chilly Billy".Naturaaly they questioned who the bleep Chilly Billy was.

I ran into our college's media relations/PR coordinator, who was looking at our local (well, Columbia, SC) paper...Funicello was above the fold, with 1/3 of the page and Thatcher was almost forgotten at the bottom of the page. She was flabbergasted. :lol: Very indicative of where our culture is nowadays.

If anyone ever watched more than a little bit of TCM over the last 15 years, one would have seen the Frankie & Annette movies a number of times over.

This woman was the face of the Mickey Mouse club in her younger years, starred (top or co-top billing) in several films and then...was the spokesperson for Skippy peanut butter. Just because you are unaware doesn't make her obscure.

Yeah, I don't understand it...but maybe I'm old. She was a one of a kind.
