Annette Funicello Today is Mickey Mouse Club Day, marking debut of the first TV series starring Annette Funicello and Shelley Fabaras on this date in 1955. A later version starred Keri Russell, Christina Aguilera, and Britney Spears.
Spin and Marty was a popular series that aired as part of ABC's Mickey Mouse Club show of the mid-1950s produced by Walt Disney. There were three serials in all, set at the Triple R Ranch, a boys' western-style summer camp. How I loved it! Cute boys and horses...what more could I want? LOL!!
