Mighty Morphin' Power Rangers

Trivia: Tommy has been more colours than any other Ranger. He has been the Green, White, Red, and Black Ranger.

Trivia: Portions of every episode are from a Japanese version of the show. Almost every episode in series 1 was two thirds Japanese footage, just voiced over. Saban used this Japanese footage to save on filming its own.

The Green Candle (2) - S1-E35

Trivia: Jason David Frank, who played Tommy, left the show in the episode because his powers had been stolen by the Green Candle. However, he had become the most popular member of the Power Team, despite the original plan being just to temporarily have him on the show. Saban received large amounts of letters daily requesting Frank be brought back. The company eventually gave in and brought Frank back in the episode "Return of an Old Friend." He was returned to Green Ranger status in part 2.

The Rockstar - S1-E30

Trivia: Tommy, played by Jason David Frank, did not appear in this episode, despite being listed in the opening credits, and the Green Ranger powers being active.

Trivia: Actress Thuy Trang, the original Yellow Ranger, was unfortunately killed in a car accident in September 2001 in San Francisco.

Ninja Quest (1) - S3-E4

Trivia: There was confusion when this episode aired, as it ignored everything that had happened in the Power Rangers movie (the Rangers getting new powers and Zords), which had been released that summer.

Forever Red - S10-E34

Trivia: This episode featured an appearance by every Red Ranger, with the exception of Steve Cardenas, who played Rocky in series 2, 3, and 4.

The Mutiny (1) - S2-E1

Trivia: This was the first episode where the Rangers take their helmets off in the Command Centre.

I'm Dreaming of a White Ranger - S3-E31

Trivia: Future Yellow Turbo and Space Ranger Tracy Lynn Cruz, who would go on to play Ashley, makes a cameo appearance in this episode.

Forever Red - S10-E34

Trivia: One of the Machine Empire's Generals is from another Saban live-action show, "Big Bad Beetleborgs."

A Friend in Need (1) - S3-E1

Trivia: This episode was designed to advertise Saban's then-new show, "The Masked Rider."

The Phantom Phenomenon - S5-E23

Trivia: So far, the Phantom Ranger is the only Ranger who's identity has never been revealed.

Season 3 generally

Trivia: In the Japanese version of the show, there was no Pink Ranger - hence there only being a Red, Black, Blue, Yellow, and White Shogunzord. The Cranezord was originally designed for the White Ranger (who, in the Japanese version, was female), and the Falconzord was an entirely different Zord.

The Wedding (1) - S2-E41

Trivia: This episode and 'Return of the Green Ranger' were filmed in Australia after the movie was completed. Unable to fly back to the U.S. because of a pilot strike, the show took advantage of this unusual opportunity.

White Light (2) - S2-E18

Trivia: At the time of writing, Tommy is the only Ranger to of been two different-colored Rangers in one series, having been the Green and White Ranger in series two.

Good as Gold - S4-E49

Trivia: Steve Cardenas, who plays Rocky, did not make a personal appearance in this episode - only in morphed form.

The Spit Flower - S1-E24

Trivia: During one scene, you can see the custom motorcycles used in the Japanese version of the show in the background - the American Rangers weren't given these cycles.

Shift into Turbo (1) - S5-E1

Trivia: The original plan for this series was for Lord Zedd and Rita to be the villains for this series, with Divatox joining them later.

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.
