This original Mighty Morphin lineup pitted the colorfully costumed kids against the villainous Rita Repulsa in hand-to-hand combat and in their dino-themed Zord vehicles. We also meet the evil green ranger Tommy, who eventually comes over to the right side.
This is the series that kicked off a show that's still on today -- 24 seasons divided into 20 different themed series, not to mention two movies. The show is so classic that instead of producing a new series in , 32 episodes of this original series were "re-mastered" with new graphics and put on the air. Luke: I thought I had seen more Rangers than just the first series, but I was mistaken.

I assume these are still teens with attitude who can transform into ninjas in motorcycle helmets. They just happen to be from a different planet?
Mike: Sort of. Time on Earth gets reversed by an "Orb of Doom", leaving the previous Ranger team too young to save the world. Billy is able to become an adult again, but just as that happens, the Power Coins that give the Rangers their powers are destroyed. Luckily, Zordon calls up his friends on the planet of Aquitar, who happen to be a Power Ranger team too. They protect the world while everyone else tracks down pieces of the Zeo Crystal, which restores the Earth back to its original time.
Luke: I misread that as "Zero". I was going to make a Smashing Pumpkin joke. Instead, I'll guess this is when Power Rangers decides to go full expanded universe and dump a whole bunch of interconnected backstory and lore. Mike: Nope, they manage to keep the story going.
Power Rangers Beast Morphers (12222)
That Zeo Crystal from Alien Rangers brought the Earth back to and serves as the new power source for the five rangers. Other highlights include Blue Ranger Billy taking on a technical advisor role instead of being a Ranger, a new villain in the form of the Machine Empire and fresh from a " peace conference " the return of original Red Ranger Jason who becomes the new Gold Ranger. Luke: They replace the animal Zords with cars, right? I'm going to guess the Megazord is just a big car.

This was also the only Power Rangers season to get its kickoff from a movie. Turbo: A Power Rangers Movie , in which an intergalactic pirate kidnaps a wizard so she can marry a demon, saw the Blue Ranger role transfer to a kid named Justin, who seems to grow a foot taller every time he morphs. And yes, everyone got replaced meet Alpha 6. Plus, the Rangers get baked into a pizza!
Luke: I feel like I'm cheating this one. It has to be the Power Rangers go to space. If I'm wrong I don't know what's true anymore. Mike: Funny thing about that They didn't actually spend much time in space at all during this series. Hoping to rescue a captured Zordon, the remaining Rangers hijack a space shuttle for their rescue mission.
Then they spend most of their time protecting Earth.

Yes, Zordon is dead. Luke: This has to be a direct continuation of Power Rangers in Space, right? Only they get lost. But Lost in Space was obviously taken.

Danger, Will Robinson. Mike: In a way, you're completely right. This is the first Power Rangers series that isn't directly connected to the previous season. It's a move that follows the pattern of Super Sentai, which changes up its cast and suits every year. However, there's plenty of fallout from Power Rangers In Space, connecting ideas and carryover cast members Bulk and Alpha 6 are still around.
A new Power Rangers team protects a space colony that is seeking out a new place for humans to live.
PSYCHO RANGERS Get Their Own POWER RANGERS Title at BOOM!
This show was also the first time a Ranger was killed in the show, as Pink Ranger actress Valerie Vernon needed to depart following a leukemia diagnosis in real life. They ultimately brought the character back, but not until the end of the season. Nothing has ever made me want to watch a fight scene more than the way the Blue Ranger is standing here. Luke: I'm going for the trifecta here, saying this rounded out the trilogy. Because how else do you save someone in a Lost Galaxy? Mike: Wrong, although the Lost Galaxy Rangers make a cameo. This series brings the action back to Earth, and is the first series where the Power Rangers don't hide their identities.
It's also the first in the series to feature a Ranger that wasn't first a character on the Japanese "Super Sentai" series -- the Titanium Ranger was created just for this show. Mike: It's definitely a timey-wimey season. The Time Force Rangers, who are a kind of time police, travel back a thousand years to to chase after the mutant Ransik, who seemingly kills off the Red Ranger.
So the team finds the present-day ancestor of the Red Ranger, and give him the power instead. Mike: You'll also start noticing the recycling of themes -- this won't be the last animal-themed Ranger season. Luke: In this one I'm going to guess these Power Rangers get their powers from a zoo. A magic zoo.
Mike: Close -- a turtle-shaped island floating in the sky. This season is also notable for its Forever Red crossover episode, which brings together nearly every Red Ranger ever in one giant battle to stop the Machine Empire from turning back on Lord Zedd's Serpentera Zord. Also, following a buyout by Disney, this is the first series in which the Power Rangers are a part of the Walt Disney company.
Over the course of Disney's ownership, the Rangers even made appearances at Disney theme parks. The company sold the franchise back to original owner Haim Saban in Luke: I remember the '96 movie had ninjas as a thing. I'm gonna guess one of those Rangers came back as their sensei. Mike: Oh man, you're only one season off with that guess!
This was the first season filmed in New Zealand, where the show is still made today. In another format change, this season begins with a team of just three Rangers before eventually growing to include three more. Luke: Did they have cars as Zords all this time, and now they finally have dinosaurs again? For the record, only three of the original five Zords were actually dinosaurs.
That still bothers me. Mike: Zords are always just giant cars. And in this season, nearly every Zord is based on a dinosaur as opposed to a Saber-toothed cat or a Mastodon. But more importantly, Tommy Oliver is back, and he's now the Black Ranger! The fabled former Green Ranger has become a paleontology professor, and serves as a mentor-like figure at first before morphin once again. Unfortunately, he doesn't appear to be dating either former Pink Ranger Kimberly or Kat, though sorry shippers!
Luke: Power Rangers meets European politics? I don't know what else S. Mike: Space Patrol Delta! This series takes place in , where humans now live and work together with alien species like in Mass Effect. The A group disappears, so we spend most of the time with the B-Squad as they protect the Earth from the Troobian Empire and investigate what became of their higher-ranked colleagues. Along the way, they discover several Zords known as Galactabeasts and make an ally in the form of the mysterious Magna Defender , a galactic warrior.
Though he later dies, he manages to reveal that his host body is Mike Corbett and passes the Magna Defender powers to him. Karone, sister of the Red Space Ranger Andros and former evil princess Astronema, is given the powers of the Pink Galaxy Ranger from Kendrix who appears as a spirit , and joins the Rangers in the battle to protect Terra Venture. Here the Rangers encounter Captain Mutiny and his Swabbies. These space traveling pirates live on the back of a massive space faring dragon inside a castle.
Deviot reemerges and joins the Captain's fight against the Rangers and attempts to turn all of the citizens of Terra Venture into his slaves for the purposes of mining for "Booty". The colony escapes the galaxy after Mike sacrifices his powers to keep a portal open. After this, Deviot returns to Trakeena, but, by this time, she has learned of his treachery and tries to destroy him, chasing him through the ship and into the cocoon that Scorpius made fusing them together and driving Trakeena insane and, using her army armed with bombs, cripple Terra Venture and destroys the Stratoforce and Centaurus Megazords.
This forces the colony's people to evacuate to a nearby planet. Trakeena gives chase but the Rangers destroy her ship by self-destructing the Astro Megaship, but the explosion leaves Leo stranded on the moon. Trakeena, who survives the blast also, albeit scarred and injured, finally reaches her breaking point and uses the cocoon to transform into an insectoid creature to enter Terra Venture's wreck and use her power to set it on a crash course to the planet below to destroy it and the people below.
Leo enters and soon followed by the other Rangers try to stop her, but are slowly overmatched by Trakeena's new power. She is only defeated after Leo, using his Battlizer, blasts her at point-blank range nearly destroying himself in the process. By this time the colony is nearly crashed but the Galaxy Megazord diverts its course and lands it on a large clearing in an explosion, the colonists, having feared the worse for the Rangers, are relieved and overjoyed when they come out of the explosion on the Galactabeasts. After this, the Zords reveal to the Rangers they had landed on is Mirinoi and return the swords to the stone altar.
This restores its petrified inhabits and, to the joy of the Rangers, restores Kendrix to life as well. After this the colonists settle on Mirinoi as the series ends.
