Today marks the 21st Anniversary of the Disney Legend Class of 1992!

Hello everyone, and welcome to Tiggerific Tuesday Trivia!  Today we are getting an early jump on our trivia, by taking a look at what happened in Disney History for October 21st and 22nd!

Did you know…

That, on this day in 1992, the Disney Legends Class of 1992 was inducted?  This class, headlined (in my opinion) by Annette Funicello, featured the following Disney Legends (shown in alphabetical order):

  • Jimmie Dodd – Television Actor (given posthumously); Adult Mouseketeer & musician
  • Bill Evans – Imagineering; horticulturist & landscape specialist
  • Annette Funicello – Film & Television Actress; everyone’s favorite Mouseketeer
  • Joe Grant – Animation; story artist
  • Jack Hannah – Animation; director of TV shows and films
  • Winston Hibler – Film (given posthumously); narrator, writer & director
  • Ken O’Connor – Animation & Imagineering; genius layout artist and art director
  • Roy Williams – Animation & Television Actor (given posthumously); the Big Mooseketeer

 October 22, 1942…

Continuing our emphasis on Annette Funicello, did you know that on October 22, 1942, Annette Funicello was born?

Actress/singer and original Mouseketeer Annette Funicello is born in Utica, New York. She and her family moved to Southern California in 1946. Walt Disney first saw 12-year-old Funicello dancing the lead in Swan Lake at the Starlight Bowl in Burbank, California, and later invited her to audition for his new children’s show, Mickey Mouse Club. She was a featured Mouseketeer on the hit series and took part (along with the other original Mouseketeers) in Disneyland’s grand opening in 1955. She later starred in several Disney features, including The Shaggy Dog, Babes in Toyland, The Misadventures of Merlin Jones, and The Monkey’s Uncle. Her Disney television credits included Zorro, Elfego Baca and The Horsemasters. As an adult, Funicello was one of many celebrities who took part in Walt Disney World’s three-day opening festivities in October 1971. In 1977, Funicello guest starred as the Blue Fairy in Disneyland’s Main Street Electrical Parade! Named a Disney Legend in 1992, her autobiography A Dream Is a Wish Your Heart Makes: My Story was published two years later.
