Tommy, a new kid in town with martial arts skills that rival even Jason's, catches Kimberly's eye. Not just her, but Rita Repulsa also sees potential in him. She has her Putties kidnap him, and bring...
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

The original names for Goldar, Squatt, and Baboo were Dredwing, Grock, and Mongo. See more »
Secret identities are traditionally used to protect a hero and their loved one's from their enemies, yet the identity of the Power Rangers is ONLY a secret to their loved ones - literally every enemy they face (in this and following series') knows who they are. In fact, they quite regularly form plans based on an individual Rangers' phobias or personal items. See more »
Everyone, spread out and hide! Hey, you guys are taking all the good spots! No fair! Me first, me first!
You're the decoy, remember? We're the only ones that are supposed to hide!
Oh, yeah. What was I thinking? I'm the decoy, I'm the decoy...
What a doofus.

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.

Everyon Liked It
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!
