Day of the Dumpster

When a strange planetoid appears near the moon, two astronauts are sent to investigate. They discover an ancient space dumpster, and mistakenly open it, freeing the Evil Space Aliens trapped within for the past 10,000 years. Intergalactic sorceress Rita Repulsa and her goons (Goldar, a golden armored Ape/Griffin; Baboo, a blue-furred flying monkey; Squatt, Baboo's stout impish pal; and Finster, a white dog-like inventive creature) set their sights on the nearby planet, Earth. Luckily, the mystical sage behind Rita's original imprisonment, Zordon of Eltar, has remained there (trapped in a Time Warp, limiting him to appearing as just a transmission of his head inside of a large plasma tube), awaiting her eventual escape. At his Command Center building, he has his robotic assistant, Alpha 5, seek out a group of five brave teenagers with attitudes to combat the aliens. Alpha plucks five friends from a Juice Bar in the town of Angel Grove, California. They're reluctantly given Power Morphers, which enable them to transform their bodies into magical suits empowered by the spirits of dinosaurs. After facing Rita's foot-soldiers, the Putty Patrollers, the five teens are convinced of the danger, and agree to become the Mighty Morphin Power Rangers: Jason, the Red Tyrannosaurus Ranger; Zack, the Black Mastodon Ranger; Billy, the Blue Triceratops Ranger; Trini, the Yellow Sabertooth Tiger Ranger; and Kimberly, the Pink Pterodactyl Ranger. Together, they can call forth massive fighting machines based on their respective dinos, and combine those into a single huge humanoid robot Megazord. They use the Megazord to run off Goldar, who attacks Angel Grove and with Rita's magic, soon grows gigantically. After the successful battle, the five teens agree to help Zordon and Alpha 5 defend the Earth for as long as it takes.

Food Fight

Ernie's Youth Center & Juice Bar sponsors an International Food Festival, in cooperation with Angel Grove High. The five Ranger teens are among those involved. Rita sends down Finster's latest creation, the aptly named Pudgy Pig, to consume the festival's food supply, as well as anything else he can fit into his hungry mouth. Pudgy Pig even ends up eating the Rangers' Power Weapons! A weak spot is noticed, involving his dislike for spicy foods, and soon the monster's eating binge comes to a close when chopped in half by the Megazord. The International Food Festival also meets a messy demise, when Bulk & Skull start an uncontrollable food fight.

High Five

The five Ranger Teens begin to settle into their new roles as protectors of both Angel Grove, and the entire planet. Billy, the genius boy in blue, invents a series of silver watchbands with which they can both talk to each other, and teleport to the Command Center (the Communicators). Meanwhile, at her evil palace on the moon, Rita Repulsa schemes to do to the Rangers what she did to Zordon long ago. With the help of Finster's device, she attempts to trap the Power Rangers inside of a strange Time Warp dimension. If that wasn't bad enough, Billy gets backed up to the top ledge of a mountain by some Putties. Trini, deadly afraid of heights, must confront her fear to help him out. The Rangers escape the Time Warp, and triumphantly fight two of Finster's creations: a skeletal warrior named "Bones", and a giant... umm... "Giant" monster.

Teamwork

Kim and Trini attempt to shut down a local waste dump with a petition. This inspires Rita to trash the whole world with the use of her Minotaur monster. Our heroes learn a valuable lesson in working together, especially when they're given their own Power Weapons by Alpha. The Megazord defeats the monster, and the petition proves to be a success.

A Pressing Engagement

At the Youth Center, Jason attempts to break Bulk's benchpressing record, only to be severely distracted. Rita comes up with a plan to divide and conquer the Rangers, by splitting them up during a battle with the King Sphinx monster. It takes the Zord-charging power of their Coins' Power Crystals to bring everyone back together, and to take down King Sphinx & Goldar.

Different Drum

Kimberly's deaf friend, Melissa, has a tough time fitting in. When the Gnarly Gnome monster strikes, using music to hypnotize the children of Angel Grove, her handicap allows her to remain unaffected. With her aid, the Power Rangers put an end to the Gnome's symphony of destruction.

Big Sisters

Kim & Trini get the task of being "big sisters" to a mischievous little girl named Maria. Rita kidnaps the bratty child, with intent of using her to open a magic trunk filled with Power Eggs. The Rangers end up facing the Chunky Chicken monster to save the annoying girl. All of this, plus, Billy unveils his specially modified VW Beetle, known as the RADBUG.

I, Eye Guy

Billy helps his young brainy buddy Willy with a Virtual Reality device for the Angel Grove science fair. Willy's intelligence and lack of self-confidence entices Rita, as she schemes to capture him and use his experiments for evil. The Eyeguy scopes the boy out, but fails to see the Rangers coming.

For Whom the Bell Trolls

It's hobby week at Angel Grove High. The Ranger teens have all brought in various items reflective of their personalities. Trini brings in her doll collection, along with her favorite one of all, a blue elf named Mr. Ticklesneezer. Rita ends up stealing him, and turning him into a monster. Ticklesneezer goes around shrinking things and collecting them into bottles. This includes the Megazord, as the Rangers meet their first real defeat, only to have it turn out to all be just a dream of Trini's.

Happy Birthday, Zack

The Ranger teens & Ernie plan a surprise party at the Juice Bar for Zack. The secrecy leads him to believe they've all forgotten about his birthday. Rita shows she cares, by sending down a special treat, a vicious black knight monster known as Nasty Knight. The Black Ranger faces off with him, Power Axe to sword. Later, Zack's birthday party goes off without a hitch, though Ernie ends up getting covered in cake instead of Bulk & Skull for a change.

No Clowning Around

The fair has come to Angel Grove, and the Ranger teens enjoy a day at it, with Trini's cousin Sylvia. The fair turns out to be a front for Rita, with numerous Putties as clowns. One such clown, named Pineapple, turns Sylvia into a cardboard cutout. He reveals himself to be a creature named Pineoctopus. Billy & Alpha solve Sylvia's 2-dimensional dilemma, and the Rangers shut down the evil carnival for good.

Power Ranger Punks

With the Ranger teens distracted, Baboo sneaks to Earth and drugs their lemonade with a magical potion. Billy & Kimberly are the only two to take a sip, but the effects on them are quite odd. They both start acting like punks, picking on kids at the high school, and even scaring Bulk & Skull. The other 3 Rangers have more important issues to deal with, namely Rita's Terror Toad monster. Zordon traps the two out of control teens in the Command Center, and sends Alpha off on a dangerous mission alone to seek the Singing Squash, with which to restore Billy & Kim to normal.

Peace, Love, and Woe

There's a big party coming up at the Youth Center, but the nerdy Billy is as dateless as ever. By coincidence, he bumps into an equally brainy girl named Marge, and the two hit it off. Soon, Rita's ally, Madame Woe, mistakes Marge for a Ranger, and captures her. The actual Rangers come to her rescue, combining their powers, and destroying her without even needing their Megazord. Billy & Marge happily go to the dance together, and she's never seen nor mentioned again afterwards.

Foul Play in the Sky

Kim goes for flying lessons with her pilot uncle Steve. Bulk & Skull tag along. Rita spikes Steve's drink with a sleeping potion, which kicks into effect while in the skies over Angel Grove. Kim nervously takes over flying the four-seater plane, and with a little guidance from Alpha 5, lands safely. She then joins her teammates in battle with the Snizzard monster, already in progress.

Dark Warrior

Trini's famous scientist uncle Howard drops by the Youth Center, with a new invisibility formula. Rita spots it, and plans to use it on her new monster, the camouflaged creature known as the Dark Warrior. Billy gets sick of Bulk & Skull picking on him, and decides to reenroll in Jason's karate class. But as before, he doesn't fare well in it. Uncle Howard, not only a scientist but a master martial artist, offers to give him some training at the park. There, Dark Warrior kidnaps him, and orders him to give up the invisibility formula. He refuses, and gets strapped to a bomb capable of leveling the city. Billy saves the day, and manages to get his yellow belt with Uncle Howard's help.

Switching Places

Billy's brain switching machine goes haywire (with a little help from Squatt & Baboo), causing his & Kimberly's minds to swap bodies! Hilarity ensues when Billy as Kim, and Kim as Billy, spend a few days in each other's shoes... literally! Plus, the Genie monster rubs our heroes the wrong way.

 Green With Evil (1): Out of Control

Tommy, a new kid in town with martial arts skills that rival even Jason's, catches Kimberly's eye. Not just her, but Rita Repulsa also sees potential in him. She has her Putties kidnap him, and bring him to the moon. There, Rita places a spell over Tommy, turning him into the evil Green Power Ranger! Using his Dragon Power Coin, Tommy infiltrates the Command Center, gives Alpha 5 a virus, and trashes most of the control consoles. Zordon attempts reasoning with him, but fails, and gets cut off from our dimension. The Green Ranger then fights the other Power Rangers in battle, and with the Evil Space Aliens' help, takes our heroes by surprise while they're in their Megazord. The Ranger take the beating, and retreat to the damaged Command Center in the RADBUG. They restore Alpha, but fail to learn anything about the mysterious Green Ranger.

Green With Evil (2): Jason's Battle

With the Command Center still incapacitated from the Green Ranger's attack, Billy & Trini attempt to repair it and Alpha 5. Tommy returns to Earth, and acts cold & rude to Kimberly. Soon, after a successfully training run on the beach, Rita gives Tommy the Sword Of Darkness, which acts as a catalyst for keeping him under her evil spell permanently. Our heroes remain at a loss for a plan, but devote as much time into it as they can. Because of that, Jason informs Tommy at school that he'll be unable to work out with him later. Unbeknownst to Jason, the possessed Tommy then teleports him to the Dark Dimension! Trapped, with no way out, no way of morphing, and no way of contacting his teammates, Jason faces Goldar alone...

Green With Evil (3): The Rescue

Jason continues battling Goldar in the Dark Dimension, and eventually, the Green Ranger as well. Luckily, in the nick of time, the Rangers & Alpha are able to lock on to his Communicator and teleport him out of there. But with Zordon still lost and the Command Center still in shambles, the victory is bittersweet, at best. To make things worse, Rita summons Scorpina, a female warrior long buried in a cave, with the ability to transform into a monstrous scorpion when in giant mode.

Green With Evil (4): Eclipsing Megazord

Goldar grows and attacks Angel Grove, and nearly eats Bulk & Skull. Meanwhile, the search for Zordon heats up, but while the Rangers are out, Green Ranger sneaks back into the Command Center, and attempts to sabotage it again. Alpha's prepared, capturing him in a stasis shield briefly. Rita frees him, and uses her Magic Wand to make him grow! He joins Goldar & Scorpina in fighting the Megazord, as Rita casts a spell to eclipse the sun and cut off its solar power reserves. Though the Power Sword helps add a boost of energy, the Megazord falls to the trio of evil. The Zords separate and scatter into a burning hole in the ground. Our heroes retreat in defeat, but learn from Alpha's brief short reencounter, the true identity of the Green Ranger: their new mood-swinging pal, Tommy Oliver!

Green With Evil (5): Breaking the Spell

Kim confronts the evil Tommy in the Youth Center, but he simply informs her that she and the other Rangers will soon be destroyed. Utilizing his Dragon Dagger's flute mode, the Green Ranger summons forth the ancient Green Dragonzord from Angel Grove bay. It begins to rampage through the city, crushing & blowing up buildings. Zordon's transmission is finally reestablished with this dimension. The Megazord is recovered, and victoriously faces the Dragonzord. The Green Ranger's Sword Of Darkness is destroyed, freeing Tommy from the evil spell. He's disoriented, but regretablly recalls everything he did while evil. The Rangers offer him a place among them, and he gladly accepts. The Dragonzord forms with the Megazord, creating the Dragonzord in Battle Mode. Zordon welcomes Tommy to the team, claiming the 6th Ranger was prophesied.

The Trouble with Shellshock

Tommy settles into his new role on the team, by playing a friendly game of basketball with the other Ranger teens. On the moon, Rita naps, prompting Baboo & Squatt to take charge by making their own monster. Shellshock, a turtle with a stoplight atop his shell, is sent to Earth, and wreaks more havoc by accident than on purpose. Trini races for the Deandra Flowers. The 6 Power Rangers put his light on permanent red with the help of their two Megazords.

Itsy Bitsy Spider

Trini & Billy petition to save the Forest Spirit Statue from demolition. It supposedly protects the woods from nasty bug infestations. Rita swipes the statue and replaces it with a lookalike, which hides her Spidertron monster within. Zack brings his young Hip-Hop Kido class to the park to work out nearby, and all but the Black Ranger are put under a sleeping spell by Spidertron. Unfortunately for Zack, he's deathly afraid of bugs, spiders especially!

The Spit Flower

Kimberly has the task of designing a flower float for an Angel Grove parade. Putties drop by the Juice Bar, and trash it before she can turn the design in. Kim frets over losing it, and soon has to face the evil flesh-eating-blossom-spewing Spit Flower monster. Tommy & Alpha rebuild the model float, and her design ends up in stock footage on TV.

Gung Ho!

Jason & Tommy team-up for an upcoming Team Ninja competition at the Youth Center. They have trouble working together, as both are used to sparring one-on-one. As the other Rangers fight the nigh-invincible Super Putties, Zordon sends Jason & Tommy off to retrieve new weapons. They face a strange metal creature known as Titanus, and learn teamwork in the face of adversity. The Super Putties are wiped out, and Zordon reveals that Titanus is an old friend, who'll act as a Carrierzord for the Megazords, with which they'll create the Ultrazord!

Life's a Masquerade

There's a costume party going on at the Youth Center! Rita uses this distraction to mine a special clay on Earth, from which she'll create a breed of Super Putties. She sends her own version of Frankenstein's Monster to the party, and he's immediately mistaken for Tommy (likely due to their similar high foreheads).

Wheel of Misfortune

The Ranger teens are involved with a stage play of Rumplestiltskin at Angel Grove High. Kim's grandmother's antique spinning wheel is used as a prop. Bulk, as the title character in the play, nearly breaks it, and Kim freaks out. Rita sends her goons down to capture the wheel, and turn it into an evil Wheel Of Destruction. The Megazord faces the giant wheel, destroys it, but luckily, it reverts back to its original form, unharmed, just in time for the play, which is unusually short.

Island of Illusion (1)

There's an upcoming dance competition, and despite his usual smooth moves, Zack's got a heavy case of self-doubt. Rita is inspired, and after summoning the evil God, Lokar (who sends the Mutitus creature to face the Megazord), she traps them on a strange island dimension. There, the 6 Rangers face illusions preying upon their worst fears.

Island of Illusion (2)

The Rangers get a little help from an elf named Quagmire, inhabitant of the strange island of illusion. He reminds them, in rhyme, that self-confidence is the secret to defeating the island's spells. The Rangers overcome their fears, escape the island, defeat Mutitus, and Zack aces the dance competition.

The Rockstar

Jason and his young cousin Jeremy become embroiled in a plot by Rita & Scorpina to capture the powerful Mirror of Destruction. A Rockstar monster rounds out the cast.

Calamity Kimberly

Kimberly wakes up on the wrong side of the bed, begins to have an extremely bad day. It turns to worse when Rita sends the Samurai Fanman down to Earth. He traps the bad haired, ratted clothed, annoyed Kim inside an urn, connected to another dimension. The Power Rangers race against the clock to free her before she's lost inside it forever.

A Star Is Born

Tommy competes with Bulk for a role on a Karate commercial. Meanwhile, the other Rangers end up trapped in a cocoon, thanks to Scorpina's pet worm creature. If that wasn't bad enough, Rita sends down the baseball-fevered Babe Ruthless monster! Our heroes, with the help of the MegaDragonzord, defeat this double threat. Tommy & the mayonnaise-tanned Bulk both get the commercial role, though for Karate-skills comparative reasons only.

The Yolk's on You!

There's a big talent show at Angel Grove High School. On the way there to assist Jason in a Martial Arts themed skill, Tommy gets captured by a group of Putties. On the moon, Finster creates the Fang monster for Rita's birthday. The Leo Gorcy-type voiced creature becomes enraged when Baboo & Squatt eat his Gooney Bird eggs. They tell him that the Rangers have his eggs, and a battle occurs. Tommy's freed, and the Ultrazord is used to end this case of framery.

The Green Candle (1)

There's a dance coming up, but Tommy's got cold feet about asking Kimberly to it. On the moon palace, Rita unviels her master plan concerning her former employee, the Green Ranger. It seems that when he was working for her, he touched some magic wax, which is now linked to his Morphing powers. By turning the wax into a Green Candle, and lighting it, his powers will slowly fade away. To help ignite this into action, the Cyclops monster is sent to Earth. It mimics the Dragonzord, and begins to rampage through the city. Tommy is sucked into the Dark Dimension, and fights with Goldar, while his teammates face the Cyclops. He proves to be too powerful for them alone. The Green Ranger escapes from Goldar, and prepares to battle Cyclops. Everything is going as planned, as the Green Candle continues burning down...

The Green Candle (2)

Against better judgment, Tommy goes into battle with the Cyclops monster as the Green Ranger, alone. The fight takes its toll on the Green Candle, which quickly burns down to nearly nothing. The Ultrazord destroys the mimicking monster, but it's too late for Tommy. He and the other Rangers return to the Command Center, and watch as his Green Ranger powers dissipate. Before all is lost, though, he passes his Dragonzord coin to Jason. The Red Ranger can now draw upon the remnants of the Green powers, to summon the Dragonzord and use the golden chest shield. Tommy says goodbye to his former teammates, even though he'll still be a Power Ranger in spirit. He manages to get up enough courage to ask Kim to the dance. She happily agrees, and they share a rare kiss by the lake.

Birds of a Feather

Zack grooms his young student to take part in a karate tournament, against an angry ward of Bulk & Skull. The Rangers face the chicken-like Hatchasaurus monster. He's defeated quickly, but manages to regenerate using his inner sentinent heart-creature, known as the Cardiatron. Jason, using both his Red Ranger powers, along with the Green Ranger powers, must face this odd being alone.

Clean-Up Club

Inspired by Trini's video project on pollution, the Ranger teens organize a Clean-Up Club. They set out to make Angel Grove Park a cleaner place. Rita sends down the Polluticorn monster, to undo all of their hard work, and destroy the world.

A Bad Reflection on You

Rita's newest monster, the Twin Man, creates a special team of five Putty Patrollers, which have the power to transform into evil versions of the Power Rangers! These diabolical doubles wreck havoc on our heroes' lives, even framing them into getting detention. The evil doppelgangers attack the city, as the good guys remain stuck at the High School!

Doomsday (1)

Angel Grove Mayor Carrington declares today, "Power Rangers Day." There's a big celebration planned, and nearly everyone's going to be there. Bulk & Skull try to steal the Rangers' thunder by storming the stage as Bulk Man & Super Skull. Rita captures the entire crowd of townspeople, and imprisons them in another dimension. The Rangers then have to fight Goldar, who pilots the mighty evil Cyclopsis, the War Zord! The Ultrazord prevails against his evil Warzord, destroying it. All is not won, however, as Rita gets in on the action, damaging the Rangers' Zords, and using Lokar to bring Cyclopsis back from oblivion.

Doomsday (2)

The Power Rangers face Cyclopsis with their Megazord at only half-power. Somehow, they overcome the overwhelming odds, destroy the Warzord for good, rescue the citizens of Angel Grove from the other dimension, and put a major dent in Rita's relation with Lokar. The five Rangers take the stage at the Power Rangers Day celebration, and are hailed by all, including Tommy, who drops by at the end to show his support. Later, at the Command Center, Zordon & Alpha inform the team that with Rita seemingly defeated, their obligations are fulfilled. Though the teens consider passing the powers and returning to normal lives, they decide against it, and choose to remain the Mighty Morphin Power Rangers.

Rita's Seed of Evil

The Ranger Teens plan to plant saplings in the park. Rita does some gardening of her own, by sending down the Octoplant seed. It blooms into the Octoplant, a monster hung up on its own appearance.

A Pig Surprise

The Ranger Teens organize a Pet Adoption program, which leads to an old lady bringing in her pig, Norman. The elderly woman turns out to be a Putty, and her pig is none other than Pudgy Pig reborn. Our heroes find out too late, and Bulk & Skull end up adopting the porker. The Rangers become involved with another battle with Goldar & Scorpina. Pudgy Pig, in this incarnation, turns out to be docile, and wants only to be with a female pig! Alpha returns Pudgy to being Norman, and lives happily ever after on the farm, until the eventual baconing.

Something Fishy

Jason, Zack, & Trini go scubadiving. Billy's invited, but this just brings up bad memories from his childhood. Seems as a boy, he was playing in a lake, when a fish bit his finger. Since then, he's been quite afraid of aquatic animals. Rita exploits this fear, sending down the Toxic Goo-Fish monster. Blue Ranger manages to overcome his fish phobia, and filets the villain.

Lions and Blizzards

The Ranger Teens take part in the annual Oddball Games, a set of strange obstacle courses. They win (what a surprise), but their strange trophy gets swiped by Rita. It's turned into the evil Goatan, the Stormbringer, a Goat-Lion monster. Bulk & Skull are blamed for the trophy theft at first. Angela, having lost in the games to Zack, ends up doing on a date with him at last. His Ranger duties cause him to be called out in the middle of the movie, and that kills their relationship.

To Flea or Not to Flee

Ernie's Youth Center is going out of business, despite efforts to save it from shutting down. A stray dog wanders in, and gives Jason a rash! It's not ordinary rash, but the infection of Rita's newest monster, the Fighting Flea. Thanks to some Raid-style flea killing chemicals, Jason's de-rashed, and Fighting Flea is stamped out. The stray dog turns out to be the beloved pet of a rich woman, and, you guessed it, the reward money saves the Youth Center for another 5 years.

Reign of the Jellyfish

Angel Grove High School is preparing to bury a time capsule in the park, to be opened in 100 years. Among the items, is a picture of the Power Rangers. Rita's furious, sending down Baboo & Squatt to steal the capsule, and put a picture of her in it instead. She also sends down the Jellyfish Warrior monster to trap our heroes in another dimension.

Crystal of Nightmares

There's a big test coming up, so the Ranger Teens head up to Billy's Uncle's cabin up in the mountains to cram. Goldar uses this brain-storming session to his advantage, by manipulating their dreams with the Crystal Of Nightmares. Their worst fears are played out in their dreams, causing them to be completely paranoid and afraid when they wake up. Against their current states of mind, Zordon has them seek out the Crystal, and destroy it. Overcoming their overwhelming self-doubts, our heroes shatter the crystal, and likely pass more than one tests.

Plague of the Mantis

Trini trains with Master Li in a new fighting technique, known as the Praying Mantis style. She's unable to grasp the proper motivation for achieving the stances. Rita sends down a Mantis monster to face her, one on one. This works towards Trini's advantage in the long run, as she masters the technique, and helps her teammates take the Mantis down.

Return of an Old Friend (1)

It's Parent's Day at the Youth Center, and all of the Ranger Teens' fathers & mothers are there. Rita decides to trap the parents in another dimension, and use them as ransom for attaining the Power Coins! To make things worse, Billy is placed under a spell, and steals the Dragon Dagger from the Command Center. With it, Goldar takes control of the Dragonzord, and sends it on a rampage. Helpless to help their parents, the five Power Rangers give up their Dino Coins. Goldar lies, takes the coins and refuses to release the parents. All seems lost, until our heroes realize one Power Coin remains, the nearly-depleted Green Ranger Coin.

Return of an Old Friend (2)

Tommy arrives at the Youth Center, and finds the place deserted. He's teleported to the Command Center, and debriefed about the situation. He's given his Power Coin back, and with an infusing of power from Zordon himself, Tommy morphs into the Green Ranger once again. He quickly faces Goldar and some Putties, trying to regain the Dragon Dagger & the other 5 Coins. Tommy succeeds, but in doing so, he's struck with a backlash from Goldar's forcefield around the Coins. He's knocked into a coma, while the other Rangers face Rita's Dramole monster in the city. Tommy awakens to find his body mysterious supercharged with green energy. Zordon's transmission is weakened from repowering him, and is nearly lost, until the other 5 Rangers recharge him with their Coins. Dramole is defeated, the parents are freed, and Tommy remains as the Green Ranger, operating in a limited power capacity.

Grumble Bee

Billy gets his first B on a test ever. He's devestated. Rita is once again inspired by an event in a Ranger's life, and has Finster create a Grumble Bee monster. Trini & Billy face it, while their three teammates struggle to break free from an unbreakable rope at the basketball court.

Two Heads Are Better Than One

Tommy & Jason teach the mothers of Angel Grove some self-defense courses at the Youth Center. Their motto for the moms, two heads are better than one. Rita is inspired, as always, and has Finster create the Two-Headed Parrot monster, Pete & Repete. Teamwork, two-heads times three, plus a Pamango fruit are needed to take out this double-bird brained menace.

Fowl Play

Zack puts on a magic show for the kids at the Juice Bar. He's more interested in impressing Angela, and seems to succeed. Rita sends down the Peckster monster, causing Zack to pull a dissapearing act just when he's about to woo the girl of his dreams.

Trick or Treat

Kim faces Skull on the nation's biggest hit game show, Trick Or Treat! This Halloween-themed program does... guess what? Yes, it inspires Rita, and the Pumpkin Rapper monster is harvested on Earth. Tommy finds the evil pumpkin patch on his way to a karate tournament, and faces a gang of Putties guarding it. Kim's nearly winning the show, when her Ranger duties call. She fakes a faint, and Skull is declared winner by defeat. Our heroes face the Pumpkin Rapper, who makes even Vanilla Ice blush with his cheesy rhymes. Bulk & Skull later lose the grand prize, a new car, when the network reviews the tape and finds Skull cheated. Like game shows have never cheated before, eh?

Second Chance

Ernie picks the new lineup for the Angel Grove Junior Soccer team, but a young boy named Roger isn't on it. He's friends with the Ranger Teens, which means he's gonna get special treatment for this injustice. A second tryout will be held, so our heroes help him train for it. Rita sends down the Soccadillo monster to keep with the soccer theme. The Rangers kick him around, and eventually score a goal by destroying him. Later, Roger doesn't only make the team, but he causes Ernie to make two soccer teams so that everyone can play.

On Fins and Needles

Jason & Tommy teach free karate classes at the Youth Center. Rita's annoyed by their friendship, and sends down the Slippery Shark monster. His boomerang-fin weapon casts a spell on the two, causing them to hate each other intensely. This nearly leads to an all out brawl in the Youth Center, organized by Bulk & Skull. Luckily, their teammates intervene, and by forcing teammwork, Tommy & Jason break free from the spell and sink the shark.

Enter... The Lizzinator

Kim's cousin Kelly has a tough time getting on the Angel Grove Junior High cheerleading squad. She offers some pointers, but the insecure redhead is unable to cope. Rita has Baboo & Squatt kidnap her for some reason, while she sends down the Lizzinator monster. The nearly invulnerable creature smacks cars around, along with the Red Ranger. The monster's eventually defeated with the Ultrazord, and Kelly gets freed from evil by use of her horrid cheers. She makes the squad, but you could easily guess that much.

Football Season

It turns out there IS something a Ranger teen isn't good at. Namely, Tommy, who struggles to make the Angel Grove High football team. His karate training messes up his coordination, but Ernie, who used to be a Quarterback or something, helps him out. Rita sends down the Rhinoblaster monster to face the other Power Rangers, in a game of football with a squad of Putties. Long story short, Tommy makes the team, but then again, so does uber-geek Billy. We never see them play any games, so the team must be honorary only.

Mighty Morphin' Mutants

Miss Appleby assigns her class to find their personal fault, and attempt to correct it. Tommy's is obvious, he's incredibly forgetful! His teammates try to help out, but he forgets to use the things they made him to keep from forgetting. Meanwhile, Rita has Goldar specially train a group of Putties. Only five pass the tests, and are given the Badges Of Darkness, allowing them to morph into exact evil doubles of the Yellow, Pink, Blue, Green, and Black Rangers. To replace Red, the Commander Crayfish monster is created. These evil Rangers give the real ones a run for their money, with most of them even growing large during the Megazord battle!

An Oyster Stew

Angela's birthday is coming up, and Zack wants to take her out. He arranges a nice double date with Tommy & Kim and her at a fancy French resturant. He seeks a pair of pearls earrings to give to Angela, but is unable to afford any. Zack finds a strange hustler at the park, who gives him a pair real cheap. It turns out, the hustler was a putty in disguise, and the pearls are the evil Pearls Of Stillness! Angela happily puts them on, and freezes everyone in the resturant. Zack & Tommy are the only ones unfrozen, and must fight Rita's Oysterizer monster to undo the pearl's effects. The duo do so, but Angela's angered about the disintergrating earrings. The Rangers, in the Megazord & Dragonzord, take on Oysterizer under water! Later, Zack sings Angela a ballad, with Bulk & Skull providing the music. She's swept off her feet, and never seen or mentioned on the series again.
