The Del Rubio Triplets


The Del Rubio Triplets were a variety/musical act who rose to notoriety in the 1980s due mostly to their campy style of dress and their goofy interpretations of standards and songs of the era. The Del Rubio triplets were born as the Boyd triplets (Edith, Elena and Mildred Boyd) in 1921 in the Panama Canal Zone. The girls grew up in the Panama Canal Zone and Washington, D.C.. Their stage name comes from the color they dyed their hair; the word "rubio" means "blond" in Spanish. Read more on Last.fm
The Del Rubio Triplets were a variety/musical act who rose to notoriety in the 1980s due mostly to their campy style of dress and their goofy interpretations of standards and songs of the era. The Del Rubio triplets were born as the Boyd triplets (Edith, Elena and Mildred Boyd) in 1921 in the Panama Canal Zone. The girls grew up in the Panama Canal Zone and Washington, D.C.. Their stage name comes from the color they dyed their hair; the word "rubio" means "blond" in Spanish. Grammy winning songwriter Allee Willis is credited with discovering the Del Rubio Triplets in 1985 and presenting them at her parties where they garnished much notable attention.[1] Their biggest "hit" was an acoustic-guitar cover version of the song "Whip It" by Devo. They made various television appearances such as Married... with Children, Full House, The Golden Girls (called the Donatello Triplets on the show), Night Court and Pee-wee's Playhouse wearing bouffant hair-dos and gaudy blue eyeshadow.

They often appeared scantily clad (usually showing off their legs) despite the fact that they were in their sixties at the time. They are often remembered for their contribution of "Winter Wonderland" to the Pee-wee's Playhouse Christmas Special that originally aired in 1988. They also briefly appeared in the motion picture Americathon, playing "America the Beautiful" behind several posing bodybuilders. In the late 1980s they were featured in a McDonald's fast food advertisement. The three performed until Eadie was diagnosed with cancer in 1996 where she died at Torrance Memorial Medical Center in Torrance, California.

After her death Elena and Milly never again performed but lived together for five years until Elena died of cancer in 2001. Elena and Eadie are interred in a family plot at Holy Cross Cemetery in Culver City, California next to their father. Since the death of Elena Del Rubio, Milly has remained in the San Pedro, California home that they all shared together. Read more on Last.fm.
