Mighty Morphin Power Rangers!
Are you a teen with attitude?
If so, you may be right for the Power Rangers!
Power Rangers was created by Haim Saban and Shuki Levy and first came to the public's attention in 1993. Here we have Power Rangers coloring pages free and downloadable.
Power Rangers has exploded in popularity. There have been 26 television series of 20 different Power Rangers themes.
Hasbro is the master toy licensee. Hasbro acquired the license in 2018.
The basic theme of Power Rangers is that a mentor recruits a team of youths to become superheroes.
The different Power Rangers wear suits of different colors, which makes it a lot easier to tell them apart.
Each team of Power Rangers is composed of three to five youths. There is no limit or minimum, but so far the groups have been within that range.
One of the most noticeable things about the Power Rangers series is that it uses footage from the Super Sentai television series produced by Toei Company. This sometimes gives the episodes a campy feel, but the footage is worked seamlessly with live-action scenes involving the current group of Power Rangers.
The first Power Rangers series debuted on 28 August 1993 and was called "Mighty Morphin Power Rangers."
There have been three Power Rangers theatrical films, released in 1995, 1997, and 2017. There undoubtedly will be more.
While every member of a Power Rangers team wears a different color, those colors change from team to team. Red and Blue always appear.
Yellow is the next most popular color for Power Rangers. Almost every team includes yellow.
The series follows the team in their ordinary lives, not just their superhero alter egos. The characters tend to wear the same colors both as Power Rangers and in school or wherever else they are seen.
In every Power Rangers series, there are villains. These sometimes are original and sometimes derive from the Super Sentai series.
There is a National Power Rangers Day on 28 August of every year.
Recent Power Rangers series have reunited the current team with past teams. So, fans can see their old favorites return.
The three Power Rangers motion pictures were "Mighty Morphin Power Rangers: The Movie" (1995), "Turbo: A Power Rangers Movie" (1997), and "Power Rangers" (2017).
Power Rangers has been successful overseas as much as in the United States. It has aired in over 40 overseas markets.
Some overseas markets have taken exception to some of the Power Rangers series. It turns out that the word "Morphin" was offensive in Malaysia, which briefly banned the series. Power Rangers removed the word for Malaysia and the ban was lifted.
There have been dozens of Power Rangers DVD collections. Many of these collections can be found on streaming services, too.
The Power Rangers toys were created by Bandai for the first 25 years. After that, Hasbro took over toy distribution.
There also have been many Power Rangers comics. These have included Marvel Comics and Boom Studios.
There is even a Power Rangers book called "Power Rangers: The Ultimate Visual History" (2018).
There have been some famous actors who basically became famous through starring as Power Rangers characters. These include Amy Jo Johnson, who was in the original Mighty Morphin Power Rangers series and later went on to star in "Felicity."
There is a giant robot (Zord and Megazord) who derives from the Super Sentai series. The Power Rangers sometimes combine Zords into Megazords for battles.
There are certain rules that the Power Rangers must follow, sort of like the Boy Scouts.
These rules include not attempting to profit from their special powers and not over-fighting when it is not necessary. So, you will not see a Power Ranger stomping on a defeated villain's head, for instance.
If a Power Ranger does violate the rules, he or she loses their superhero powers.
No Power Ranger may disclose his or her superhero identity to anyone outside the group or they lose their powers.
Zordon is a Wizard who recruits each team of Power Rangers. The Zords, named after him, are large assault machines that the Power Rangers can use to defeat enemies.
Teens are recruited to be Power Rangers if they have "attitude." That leads to a catchphrase, "I'm a teenager with attitude."
Power Rangers have their own Twitter.
Power Rangers also has a homepage on Facebook.
Some of the Power Rangers actors got their roles by using ingenuity. For instance, Rebecca Marie Gomez, aka Becky G, began singing and rapping on Youtube. That led to her casting as a Power Ranger.
Power Rangers actors sometimes do their own stunts.
