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

Along with having the most episode appearances, Tommy Oliver (Jason David Frank) also holds the record for having the longest continuous stint as leader of the team, being named leader in the early half of Season 2 when he received the White Ranger powers, and not leaving until half-way through Power Rangers Turbo, in the episode Passing the Torch. He also has the record for most color-changes as he has been green, white, red and black. See more »

The Start Of A Great Series That Will Never Go Away
A group of teenagers have super powers.
Last night I watched some of these 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.
This century is filled with superheroes on the big or small screen but Power Rangers has been around since 1993 and it will never go away - three decades old and it is still going strong! Thankfully, Rangers is mostly free of the smart ass comments we often get from other current heroes.
Granted, is has violence, perhaps too much violence for a kid's show, but compared to what we get on big screen superhero movies - Rangers is as harmless as a fly!
A couple of lesser known facts about the series:
1- It is generally known that Power Rangers: The Movie (1995) was filmed in Australia but most don't know that a few episodes of this original series were also done in Oz.
2- The show was not all just mindless action. For example, one episode had a male school student who had issues with dyslexia.
In a nutshell, be it be 1993 episodes or 2020 episodes, this series is a mighty important part of fantasy entertainment - for the young and not so young.
