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

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 »
There are so many of us, and so few of them! Why can't we defeat them, why?

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.
I'm ashamed. I was young and foolish to be pulled in by this show. Looking back on it now I realise what a load of rubbish it is! The acting is so lame and cheesy and OH MY GOD!!! And did you ever notice that they did the exact same thing in very episode, but with a few substitutions made?
Typical Script -
Scene 1: Power Rangers doing something wholesome and good like homework or building a youth centre.
Scene 2: The bad guy is plotting to destroy the city and wondering how to do it.
BAD GUY WITH CHEESY NAME I know I'll create a monster, but while I'm busy doing that I'll send the Putty Patrol to deal with the Power Rangers.
Scene 3: The wholesomeness is interrupted by the Putty Patrol. The Power Rangers kick bottom then decide to go see Zordon (who happens to be this big head in a jar) because something's not quite right here.
Scene 4: Zordon says stuff, whilst Alpha makes stupid noises.
Scene 5: Monster attacks city.
Scene 6: Morphing time! Takes up about 10 minutes of screen time ...
BLACK RANGER "I'm the hip-hop, all dancing, unlucky-in-love, token black guy of the group ... MASTADON!" (Hey isn't that the name of a heavy metal band?)
PINK RANGER "I'm the girlie, cute one who not-so-secretly fancies the green/white guy. He looks hot in all that Lycra! I get to do all the screaming and I always get captured by the bad guy. Why the heck am I Power Ranger in the first place? ... PTERODAYTL!"
BLUE RANGER "I'm a geek. I talk like a computer ... TRICERTOPS!"
YELLOW RANGER "I'm the token Asian ranger. My only other function is to provide a translator for the geeky one and a shopping buddy for the pink ranger. I hate my life ... SABRE-TOOTHED TIGER!"
RED RANGER "I'm the leader of the Power Rangers. I used to be cool until this green/white ranger came along. Grrr ... TYRANNOSAURUS!"
GREEN/WHITE RANGER "I'm the super powerful Power Ranger who makes the other characters look rubbish. I'm not the leader of the Power Rangers, but I should be because the kids love me ... DRAGONZORD/WHITE TIGER"
Scene 7: Power Rangers fight monster and beat it back for a few seconds using their weapons and some well choreographed arm movements.
Scene 8: The monster grows big with help of bad guy. It's magic!
Scene 9: Get the Zords out! Connect them all together to form a Megazord. (Does anyone else think that they stole that bit from Transformers?) This takes another 10 minutes of screen time.
Scene 10: A little sword fight with the monster. The poor monster has no chance! The monster is defeated, and the bad guy is rather angry because they've lost ... again.
Scene 11: Everything is back to normal and everyone learns a valuable lesson.
*End credits and cheesy theme music*
For a show that lasts 25 minutes, they've done well to cram all the plot into 5 minutes in 30 second bursts throughout the show. To think that something so cheesy and lame as this caused the downfall of Biker Mice From Mars - it's depressing!
