RIP Pineapple Princess

Sadly Annette Funicello, the original and highly popular “Pineapple Princess” passed away yesterday.

She was much loved as a mousketeer of the 1950s Mickey Mouse Club and a beach babe in 1960s movies with Frankie Avalon such as ‘Beach Blanket Bingo’ and ‘How to Stuff a Wild Bikini’! 

Our catchy theme song ‘Pineapple Princess’ was a hit single in the summer of 1960.

What a star!

  1. Oh that's sad. My Mum will be really upset when I tell her - they are of a similar vintage. A couple of her flicks were on telly a few weekends ago (Beach Blanket Bingo was one of them), bad movie, but Annette was cute.
