I seriously wanted to be Annette way back in the olden golden Mousketeer Days, even though I couldn't do ANY of the stuff she did. (She danced on her TOES, people.) I loved the Mickey Mouse Club "dramas" she was in, like "Spin and Marty" and especially the one where she was an orphaned bumpkin who went to live with her well-off relatives in the city. I couldn't wait for the next episode.
RIP, Annette. When you and I were young, you made this little girl very happy.
