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>

Did You Know?


Jason David Frank (Tommy Oliver) he first becomes the Green Ranger in episode 17 of season 1. Then when he receives his new White Ranger powers its in episode 17 of season 2. 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 »


Goldar: [on Earth] I am the greatest warrior of all time.
Lord Zedd: [on the Moon] I can't believe that dimwit just said that.

Crazy Credits

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 »

Alternate Versions

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.

Power Rangers is one of the Best Shows and Toy Lines in TV History,
15 July 2012 | by kiti22See all my reviews

Power Rangers is one of the most popular shows in the 90's and one of the Best Shows in TV History

It has Toys, Video Games, Spin-offs, Pogs, Cards, Comic Books, Foods, Movies and many more.

The original Power Rangers, was very similar to the Batman show in the 60s.

my Favorite Rangers were Jason and Tommy

Angel Grove, nice name for a place

the Theme Song "Go Go Power Rangers" was one of the most Memorable Theme Songs ever all the haters got annoyed with that theme song but all the ranger fans and I liked it

Season 1 was the best and the most iconic and popular season out of the franchise! great costumes, great zords, great rangers and a great plot the 1st episode of Season 1 (Day of the Dumpster) is where the power rangers story begins

the most comical characters from power rangers that make us laugh were bulk and skull the 2 bullies from the group

if they don't like the power rangers and always picking on them why did they hang out with them all the time?

the Episodes of Season 1 were great

Remember "Day of the Dumpster" and "Food Fight" and "Happy Birthday Zack" and "Birds of the Feather"? Those episodes were Awesome

And don't forget "Green With Evil" and "Return of an Old Friend"

Season 2 was not that bad the Zords are cool and White ranger costume was cool, White Light was one of the Best Episodes ever made but the jokes are corny, Bulk and Skull were a bit stupid and annoying but always funny

and about Season 3 Umm Not Sure I Find it i found that season a bit mediocre Zedd Became so Stupid in that season, Rito was annoying, the alien Rangers saga was a bit boring But i like the Ninja Zords

and all of the following Power Rangers spin offs/Seasons after Mighty Morphin (except for Lightspeed Rescue&Samurai&Super Samurai) were awesome

I Also have the Video Games

Mighty Morphin Power Rangers the Fighting Edition on the Super Nintendo was a great Megazord fighting game but not bad and not boring as the Dino thunder video game but it's still fun The Graphics are Awesome, the Controls are Fun it was a great Fighting Game what a power rangers Fan Could ask For

Mighty Morphin Power Rangers the Movie on Sega Mega Drive is a great beat em up game and the best power rangers game ever made,

the graphics are awesome

the controls are cool a game is neither too hard nor too easy the musics are cool because all the power rangers songs from power rangers the album a rock adventure was in 16 bit version the levels are fun but its a short game cause there 6 stages play as your favorite rangers such as Tommy, Rocky, Jason, Billy, Adam, Zack, Kim, Trini, Aisha but it's Kind of odd that over half the game isn't even based on the movie but whatever, this game right here is everything a power rangers fan could ask for

Mighty Morphin Power Rangers the Movie was Really Good the Costumes are Awesome the Special Effects are Cool but the villains are a bit annoying but it Was not that bad too bad Jason and Zack and trini are not in it When i saw the critic's power rangers the movie review and the low ratings for this movie i was a bit shocked i thought this movie was good still better than Clash of the Red Rangers

Power Rangers is the greatest show ever made. Not some Dinosaur king Thrash nor Phineas and Ferb!! All that non stop action, fun, cool rock music and excitement that you can enjoy.

it might be OK if you're a kid or if you're born in the 90s but it gets a little bit hard to watch if you're born in the 80s

I am a Power Rangers fan so, I like this show, the video games, the toys, the movies and everything. Good stuff.

Way better than Phineas and Ferb I recommend to watch this show, you'll be happy.

Season 1 - 10/10

Season 2 - 8/10

Season 3 - 5/10

Mighty Morphin Power Rangers the Movie - 9/10

Mighty Morphin Power Rangers the Fighting Edition - 9/10
