Funicello achieved fame as one of the most popular "Mouseketeers" on the original The Mickey Mouse Club. As a teenager, she transitioned to a successful career as a singer, as well as a film actress during the mid-1960s.
The Mouseketeers sadly sang the Mickey Mouse Club Alma Mater at the end of each The Mickey Mouse Club episode.
