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

Dragonzord, Titanus, Tor the Shuttlezord, the Ninjazords and the Shogunzords are the only zords not to be destroyed after making their final appearances. See more »
In Day Of The Dumpster (the first official episode of the series), the Rangers are shown with their wrist communicators on. They didn't gain these until a later episode. See more »
Hey Bulk, remember the first time we faced danger together?
Y'mean the time we tried to make ice cream and set your dad's mustache on fire?
Oh yeah, almost forgot about that...

Every time a new Ranger was added to the team, or a Ranger changed, or in some cases, the zords were changed, on-screen, the credits changed to reflect this alteration to the cast. This system continues throughout the series, with only Power Rangers SPD (It excludes Omega and Cat Ranger completely) failing to keep up with this. See more »
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.

An old classic almost lost.
Being a child of... I forget, This show blew me away with what seemed great action and fx. Also who could forget dear old Bulk and Skull. Being older it still is fun to look back on and see how different it looks. It may look silly and cheap in the eyes of adults but to a child it just felt great. There wasn't much of a long plot going on which made it good as if you missed an episode it didn't matter, but saying that the zord changes were good and it made the show more interesting. When will people learn that a young child doesn't care much for plots, that has to wait for when they are a little older. Saddly when they made the zeo series, it would just never be the same. The new series tried too hard. Even as a child I never liked them. Maybe it was the new suits, I mean who designed them? And power rangers in space? It may have appealed to others but I think they should have stayed where they were. Simple enemies that would use the same techniques over and over. Make a monster that starts human size and then grow. And you knew that when they grow the show would almost be over. Oh and I must be dumb to forget the theme tune. I've check and they never made a slightly good theme tune again until this so call wild force series. This show was indeed a classic and I demand they stop making new ones and show the original again for the new generation.
