Volcano Sisters DVD Releases Today

Right now, out of all the Backyardigans episodes, The Volcano Sisters is the favorite in our house. About once a week my kids will ask me to play our Tivo recording of it. Then they'll pile the sofa cushions up into a small mountain and sit next to each other on it, every so often crying out, "Koo-Koo-Pele!"

Occasionally, just for variety, they'll holler, "We are mad!"

Well, today the new Volcano Sisters DVD releases, so I'm looking forward to heading out to get our own copy today. Watch for my review!

In the meantime, I thought it might be interesting to share with all of you some sites that talk about Pele, the Hawaiian volcano goddess.

Pele - In Hawaiian mythology, Pele is a goddess of fire, lightning, dance, volcanoes and violence, a daughter of Haumea and Kane Milohai. She lives on KÄ«lauea.

Pele, Goddess of Fire - Her poetic name, Ka wahine `ai honua, the woman who devours the land, is both creator and destroyer.


  1. that one where they are bikers is HILARIOUS!!! its definatly one of my favorites!!!! austin was so cute in horsing around that little outfit he wore was SO CUTE! especially when he was like laying on the fence! he is the cutest little thing ever!!!! if i was a 4 year old cartoon character i would marry him.

  2. We pre-ordered this DVD and got it before the official release! Love how it keeps my baby girl singing and dancing. =)

  3. I actually think they're saying "Puka Pele"...not sure what it means.
    My son is in LOVE with Backyardigans. I think Volcano Sisters is one of my favorites to watch with him :)

  4. My Favorite is Mission to Mars, I still walk around singing "Everything is Boinga... and Astronauts never give up even with out my 2 year old around.

  5. puka pele, basically means hole of fire.
    puka = hole
    pele = fire or goddess of fire
    pu'u ka pele is a cinder cone on the islands

    this is one of my daughters favorite episodes too.
