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

Actor Austin St. John has admitted in interviews that, while he enjoyed working on "Mighty Morphin Power Rangers", he had mixed feelings about the fame that the show had given him. Mr. St. John admitted that, because he was recognized as the Red Ranger by fans, he had to move into different homes twice due to fans that would follow him to his home, he had to get sensor lights on his home, and he once literally had the clothes ripped off his back by Power Ranger fans when he tried to enter a local mall to go shopping. As a result, Mr. St. John has said that he will take photographs with his fans, sign autographs and talk with them, but he remains very protective of his private life. See more »

It's a great kids show that should be acknowledged for what it is.
8 May 2005 | by See all my reviews

I don't see why everyone here is bashing the original Power Rangers show. Nearly every one of them is saying how now that they've gone back and watched it as an adult, it's got horrible acting, horrible dialog, and cheesy and repetitive themes. Yeah, well, guess what: it wasn't made for you to go back and watch as an adult. It was meant for kids. Kid shows didn't have to have the best acting or best writing. If they had the money to hire people to win awards for superb acting and writing, they wouldn't have wasted their time on a kid show.

Power Rangers was meant for kids to watch, to be able to understand and follow along, and to learn from the cheesy and repetitive themes that good wins over evil, teamwork is a great thing, and that you have to believe in yourself. Did it succeed it conveying these messages? I think so. It did so in a way that kids liked, a way that was "cool" during its time. It had characters that kids could see and look up to. Jason was the brave team leader, Zach was the "smooth" dancer, Billy was the smart and resourceful one, Trini was determined and helpful, Kimberly was humble and graceful, and Tommy was noble and selfless. The show stressed that people had to work together as a team to fight evil, and when situations grew worse, they didn't give up, and they found a way to come through. And on the few occasions when it could be said that they lost, that lost honorably and were happy with what good came out of it.

I really don't see fair judgment in many reviews here that bash it after re-watching it as an adult. An adult won't get the same thing out of it as a child will. I was 7 when the show debuted, and I loved it. Now, sure, I can see several flaws in the overall performance delivery, but it still conveys the message in ways that kids understand. It's the same with Power Rangers, Pokemon, and whatever the next thing will be. They have great, wonderful messages for kids, and that's all they're meant to be.

Granted, Mighty Morphin' Power Ranger's story with 5 normal teenagers from an average city with boosted fighting power is a bit more believable than the newer Power Ranger shows where they fly through space on hoverboards and land on other planets, but hey, at least the new shows are trying to keep things fresh.
