Annette Funicello Theatre: Episode 2 “Annette Meets Jet”

Tonight is our next installment of our series in honor of the late Annette Funicello, in our continuing saga about a country girl who moves to the big city, where she learns about love, friendship, and the excess self-indulgence of the thoroughly modern teenager in postwar America.

In this our second episode, Annette is as fresh as frost on the pumpkin, as she is schooled by her Aunt Lila on which spoon to use for eating grapefruit, and how to hold a fork. She also makes her first friend in the city, in the form of another girl from the country named Jet (Judy Nugent). Meanwhile, the evil Uncle Archie contemplates a nefarious plot to seal our young heroine's fate.

This episode originally aired on The Mickey Mouse Club on February 12, 1958.

Next week: “The Invitation.”
