Storyline

Four athletically able teenagers along with their brainy friend Billy are selected by Zordon to fight the evil of Rita Repulsa, her monsters and her minions after the witch is accidentally released from imprisonment in an intergalactic dumpster on the moon. Later in the series, the rangers are joined by Tommy, the once evil Green Ranger designed for Rita's evil, but later was deprogrammed and spent two portions of the series briefly as the Green Ranger. Over time, some rangers had to pass their powers to others as well. Action scenes and scenes with Rita were edited from footage based on Japanese action sagas. Replacement villain Lord Zedd was designed in the U.S. Written by Ondre Lombard <piero@cyberverse.com>

Ninjor: What do you want? Make it quick. You've got five seconds.

Alternate Versions

The pre television pilot version of the first episode, 'Day of the Dumpster', was shown on the Fox Kids programming block in 1999. There are several differences between it and the tv series:
  • 'Trini' was played by a different actress, Audri Dubois, and was completely different personality (and nationality) wise to the 'Trini Kwan' in the TV series played by Thuy Trang.
  • 'Zordon' was named 'Zoltar' and the image of his head in a tube was also blurred and somewhat pulsating.
  • There was no Juice bar (and hence no Ernie). Instead the Earth based scene took place in a bowling alley.
  • The Command Center's interior had different control panels and lighting.
  • The plating on Alpha 5's upper torso was notably larger and didn't have the familiar "lightning bolt" logo.
  • 'Flyguy', renamed 'King Sphinx' for his eventual appearance in the TV series, appeared in the episode to battle the rangers with 'Goldar'. -The Dinozords were known as Dinodroids'.
  • There was a Bulk character, but no Skull character. Instead there were three other bullies/punks alongside Bulk.

User Reviews

It's amazing what we all used to watch.
14 September 2005 | by Tenchi64589See all my reviews

I was a Power Rangers fan when it first came out, (can you believe it?) but looking back, I noticed that it's a little messed up.

Although a lot of it didn't really look all that great, remember this: THE SHOW WAS MEANT FOR A YOUNG AUDIENCE!!! It was supposed to be dorky!

Like many fans my age, we were all in awe as we watched Tommy lose his powers, but then briefly regain them only to have the green ranger powers taken away again.

I'm also guessing that those that watched this for the first time didn't know the identity of the white ranger until part two of "The White Light."

Of course, during the 3rd season, it was kind of hard to follow... so I stopped watching until Zeo.

Recently, it's grown into a guilty pleasure for me, so I only watch it in secret.

As far as the rating goes, it's at least a 7.
