As it turns out, the ban had nothing to do with the show's content. Malaysia targeted Mighty Morphin Power Rangers because they thought the word "morphin" was a little too close to "morphine." The country's deputy home minister claimed that the show was telling children that all they needed to do to become superheroes was find that shaky man hanging out behind the mattress store and score a dime of sweet, sweet H. Admittedly, Zordon must've slipped those teenagers something, because it only takes him nine seconds to convince them that thrusting oversized belt buckles into the air and shouting the names of prehistoric animals will transform them into magical ninjas.
However, despite failing to take similar precautions as Malaysia, no other country reported an increase in the number of preteens climbing on the Horse. It might have been because morphine doesn't exactly come on the candy rack at the drugstore, or it might have been because no one else in the f*****g universe would've ever come to that daffy "morphin/morphine" conclusion.
