Annette stars as a simple orphan coming from a small country farm to the upper-class suburbs so she can live with an aunt and uncle she hasn't seen in years. At first, she's excited to finally have solid home. Her aunt takes her shopping and gives her a new look, while her uncle makes her school plans ready, and the house maid babies her no end. But it's the other kids in town that at last give Annette something to worry about. Some are snobs, some are obnoxious, and the ones she does get along with are the sort of people her aunt believes are beneath her. With a new crush on the popular boy in school, Annette becomes the target of his jealous girlfriend. Her life may never be simple again. Written by Max Vaughn

My Favorite of the MMC series
5 January 2007 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I grew up watching Mickey Mouse Club and loved the series. I would absolutely love to find it on DVD or VHS tape so that I could show my kids. It reminds me of the wonderfully simple life we had back then. It was my favorite of the series that they had on Mickey Mouse Club. I have told my friends about it but they don't remember seeing it and would love to share it with them. The song from the series was also one of my favorites and if they had that on a cd or lp I would definitely buy it. I have spent the last week searching the internet trying to get information on this and at last I found it. Annette was my favorite Mouseketeer because we share the name.To be able to see this again would just make me the happiest person on earth. It's the old moral of good winning over evil. It shows the good morals we grew up with and the manners and kindness we should not loose.
