What Makes the Original 5 Power Rangers So Special
If you were a kid growing up in the 90s, there’s a good chance that you knew exactly where you’d be after school every day--sitting in front of the television and watching the Mighty Morphin Power Rangers, of course! You probably threw your books into your Ninja Turtles backpack, raced home on your Huffy bike, and settled in with a snack (which was probably Dunk-a-roos, Gushers, Fruit by the Foot, or some Teddy Grahams along with a Capri Sun).
At that point, you’d watch the original 5 Power Rangers do battle with Rita Repulsa or Goldar. You were glued to the screen Jason Lee Scott helped Billy to improve his skills. Your jaw dropped when you realized that Tommy was the Green Ranger. You almost couldn’t contain yourself when Lord Zedd showed up for the first time. Each time the original Mighty Morphin Power Rangers brought out the Zords to do battle, you almost exploded with excitement.
Which Power Ranger Were You?
As you probably know, the first Red Ranger was Jason Lee Scott, portrayed by none other than Austin St. John. When you picked out your first pair of light up shoes, you may have even made sure that the lights were red in honor of your favorite Power Ranger.
At recess, you would gather your friends and play Power Rangers, hurdling over the swings, launching across the playground, and fighting imaginary Putties. There was nothing quite like it!
Or if you weren’t quite feeling a bunch of physical activity, you might grab your Sega Game Gear and fire up the Mighty Morphin Power Rangers game. Firing up the Megazord was always a highlight of your day.
Your Favorite Red Power Ranger Action Figure
And so, amongst the slap bracelets, Bop Its, Pogs, and rollerblades, you probably had a handful of Mighty Morphin Power Rangers collectibles. Maybe it was the toys you got in a Happy Meal.
