Annette is a television serial that ran on The Mickey Mouse Club during the show's third season (1957-1958). It starred Annette Funicello as Annette McCloud, a poor, orphaned country girl who moves into town with her upper-class aunt and uncle. The serial also starred Richard Deacon as Uncle Archie McCloud, Sylvia Field as Aunt Lila McCloud, Mary Wickes as Katie the housekeeper and prolific Disney child stars: Tim Considine, David Stollery, and Roberta Shore as Annette's friends. The story was adapted by Lillie Hayward (who also worked on Spin and Marty) from the book Margaret by Janette Sebring Lowrey.

Annette was released to DVD in 2008 as part of the Walt Disney Treasures series.


The story is about a country girl who moves in with her sophisticated aunt and uncle. Most of the plot was around her at highschool trying to fit in with everybody else.
