Mighty Morphin' Power Rangers

Trivia: Walter Jones (Zack the Black Ranger) is missing his left middle finger. If you look closely you'll see it missing at various times throughout the show. Particularly when he morphs (he's the only one that only has three fingers on top of the morpher).


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.

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.

The Mutiny (1) - S2-E1

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

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.

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.

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.
