Mighty Morphin' Power Rangers

Green With Evil (1): Out of Control - S1-E17

Continuity mistake: Up until Green No More in Series 2 (where the Green Ranger powers are destroyed), the Green Ranger's overshield constantly changes between solid-looking metal to flimsy-looking cotton. This is the most obvious difference between the Japanese and US footage.

Food Fight - S1-E6

Revealing mistake: When Pudgy Pig is standing outside of the food packaging plant, a human hand can be seen sticking out of Pudgy Pig's wrist. (00:15:30)

Season 1 generally

Revealing mistake: When one of Rita's monsters tears a building apart, the buildings are completely hollow, and nothing more than 6 pieces of Styrofoam stuck together to look like a building.

Season 1 generally

Revealing mistake: When we see the Dragonzord, Tommy is sometimes standing on top of it. However, it is obvious that "Tommy" is nothing more than a small plastic figure.

Season 1 generally

Audio problem: Rita is dubbed over extremely poorly - her words don't match her mouth. This is because Power Rangers is adapted from the Japanese Super Sentai series, and the footage of Rita was from the Japanese series.

Season 1 generally

Plot hole: Up until about Green With Evil, we can see the Rangers fighting Super Putties, which didn't come into the Series until after Green With Evil.

Season 1 generally

Deliberate mistake: In fight scenes, the Yellow Ranger's stature matches that of a male (and not Trini). This is because in the Japanese version of the show, the Yellow Ranger was played by a man.

Season 1 generally

Continuity mistake: When in Tank mode and Megazord mode, the order in which the Rangers sit is: Billy, Trini, Jason, Kim, Zach. When switching between Tank mode and Megazord mode, Trini and Kim are switched - they are then back to their original seats once the Megazord has been formed.

Suggested correction: It's been shown on various occasions that the zords can be operated remotely.

Yes but to call upon the zords you need to have the power coin. The Rangers don't have the coin, therefore the Tyrannosaurus shouldn't be there.

Zordon was disabled by brainwashed Tommy, so he couldn't have summoned it at this point.

Season 1 generally

Continuity mistake: When the Megazord is in Tank mode, the Mastidon's head section is attached to the center of the Zord. But when the Zord begins to stand up and form the Megazord, the Mastidon head section is gone.

Green With Evil (5): Breaking the Spell - S1-E21

Audio problem: The Megazord throws the Dragonzord into a nearby mountain. As the Dragonzord tries to get back onto its feet, Jason, from the cockpit of the Megazord, tells Tommy to "give it up." A man who sounds absolutely nothing like Tommy replies "No way."

Day of the Dumpster - S1-E1

Continuity mistake: When we see the long shot of Rita blowing up the ground by the rangers, the clothes of the people in the long shot don't match what the rangers are wearing. Their positions are also different. (00:12:20)

Green With Evil (2): Jason's Battle - S1-E18

Other mistake: In the scene where Tommy is proving himself to Goldar on the beach against the putties, Tommy stares down the last remaining putty and makes a charge towards him. In the wide shot of Tommy charging towards the putty, one of the "dead" putties on the ground lifts his head off the ground slightly, almost as if he is watching the action unfold. (00:09:05)

Suggested correction: They're not dead. They're incapacitated or in a great deal of pain.

High Five - S1-E2

Continuity mistake: As Bulk goes to start climbing the rope, Jason is standing behind him with his arms crossed and he has on his watch and wrist bands. After Bulk gets back up from falling, Jason's watch and bands have vanished. (00:02:55)

Day of the Dumpster - S1-E1

Other mistake: After the teens leave the command center, Rita sees this and orders the creation of her Putties. Her henchman slaps down a few things of clay into a mold loosely, that then show the perfect figurines of the putties coming out of them. However with the shape of the mold, there is no way that the clay would come out in shapes like that or with that detail. (00:11:35)

Suggested correction: Given that these are literal monsters and a witch living on the moon after being imprisoned for 10,000 years, I don't think we can say for certain what their machinery will do.

This is speculating too much. Practically making the same argument that it's OK because magic. The general physics of what is being displayed on the screen doesn't match up with how the clay fits into the mold even in the slightest.

Quantom X Premium member

What Quantom is saying is that they are using a press die to create the mold for the putties and no matter how you look at it, the volume of clay going into the mold is not enough to create the detail seen on the putties.

Ssiscool Premium member

It's not just that, but the shapes don't match up at all. He does the equivalent of putting clay into a round hole and getting a square out of it.

Show generally

Question: How many different Power Ranger TV shows/movies have there been? To my knowledge, I know of at least 7 different series, but I think there is more. How do they all connect?

Answer: According to the IMDB, there are currently 10 different series (with an 11th premiering in 2006). And, as far as I can tell, there have been only two theatrically released movies. All of the series, with the exception of the first one (that premiered back in '93) are spin-offs of the original, and they all share similar plot lines, characters, etc.
