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 character of Scorpina (Ami Kawai) disappeared at the beginning of the second season. She returned in the middle of the season, in "Goldar's Vice-Versa" (played by a new actress), then left the show permenantly. Scorpina was supposed to return to the show as a main character in that episode, but Saban was unable to keep the actress for more than one episode. 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 »
I am Lord Zedd, Identify yourself.
Excellency, surely you remember me? Goldar, your faithful servant.
Ah yes, Goldar. The grovelling one.

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.
Cool Kid's Action Show Of The 1990s...That Still Stands Up Today
This Power Rangers show has been around for a while. I was even an extra in the Australian filmed Power Rangers: The Movie of 1995! So I have had an up close look and feel of this production. Many say the much later New Zealand filmed Power Rangers shows are crap, and while I agree the series has gone on for too long, I am still able to watch the New Zealand shows when I am not feeling too demanding.
Last night I watched some of the old 1993 shows and I must may say they stand the test of time rather well. I am an adult with childish viewing tastes and I feel television always needs a series filled with action, monsters, humour and crazy young people. Power Rangers, both 1990s stuff and 2000s stuff, really does provide that.
Note: Power Rangers Turbo/PR In Space are a knockout!
