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>

Trivia

Jason David Frank (Tommy) was never meant to stay on the series for as long as he did. He was only supposed to be a regular until "The Green Candle Part 2" minus a cameo in "Doomsday Part 2". but during his temporary time on the show his popularity was higher than any other Ranger. Saban received large amounts of letters daily after "The Green Candle" requesting Tommy to be brought back into the series, Eventually the company gave in and brought Frank back in the episode "Return of an Old Friend." and ended up staying on the show lasting till Power Rangers Turbo (1997) and recently in returning for Power Rangers DinoThunder (2004). He has appeared in a total of 217 episodes in the entire Power Rangers series. See more »

Goofs

In episode 72, "Green No More Part I", Lord Zedd has captured the rangers in an energy field, while he walks around gloating. Duct tape is visible on his staff just below the "Z" presumably broken during rehearsal because it is used to fight a powerless Tommy later. See more »

Everyone enjoyed the Power Rangers first seasons. The incredibly cheesy lines, ridiculous plots, and giant monster fight scenes made it all the more watchable. It was definitely watched by more people than you think when it first came out. Everyone tries to hide the fact that they watched it every time a new episode came on. The show was over the top and it rocked. The same thing was going to happen every episode, but it didn't matter. You knew there would be some small fights, Rita would get mad, make her monster huge.. which eventually lead to Morphin Time! Each villain had its own unique ability and look. They all made you laugh. The show lost its luster as it went on, but I guarantee you have to say the first seasons of Power Rangers were a total classic!
