Annette Funicello Trivia


  • Trivia

    • As a result of her extreme shyness, Annette was very anxious when it came time for her to attend school. To counter her nervousness, she would constantly tap her fingers and toes during class. When Annette's kindergarten teacher suggested to her parents that Annette should take up a percussion instrument, she chose drums. Within a short time, Miss Funicello could execute drum rolls as well as older children who had been studying for years, and was also playing the xylophone and timpani.
