15 Mighty Morphin Facts about the Power Rangers

A show both famous and infamous for its problems on- and-off-set, this odd show created by reusing footage from a Japanese show and splicing it in with newly shot footage seemed to have been designed to become a cult classic but captivated children everywhere, leading to bigger, weirder, and more red in the budget for subsequent series. And there are quite a few – from space, to galaxy, to time, to just having big cars or dinosaurs, Power Rangers has stayed and mutated and changed and then rebooted itself half a dozen times. But Mighty Morphin Power Rangers is what started it all – Zordon calling upon teenagers with attitude to come help protect the human race from a woman who lived in a dumpster on the Moon. Welcome to the television of the 1990s.
