Here's some stuff you might have missed on 'Mighty Morphin Power Rangers'.
It's been over 20 years since Mighty Morphin' Power Rangers first appeared on TV, and for 90's kids, they were an epic group of crime fighters. As with any show from the past, there might have been a lot of things on the show that you missed catching early on. Watching as an adult, you realize there's a lot of cool stuff in the series as well as some not-so-cool ones and rather cringe-worthy and embarrassing ones. Here's a flashback to the '90s with our favorite high schoolers and their radical powers, delving into some facts about Power Rangers you might have missed. Let's see how many you know!
Not many of us noticed that The Black Ranger had a missing finger. Not that it mattered, as long as he was having fun!
Just realized that the original Black Ranger from Mighty Morphin Power Rangers only has 4 fingers on his left hand... How has no one noticed pic.twitter.com/JbzIUNnoDO— sam (@samigardella) October 2, 2017
Producers didn't give a fair salary to the actors as the series was a non-union show which meant that the Screen Actors Guild did not represent the cast.
The first Yellow Ranger was actually played by a Latina actress, Audri Dubois, for the first episode.

David Yost, who played the role of Blue Ranger, revealed that the cast and crew used to abuse him on sets because they weren't accepting of his sexual orientation.
Just one of those cringey moments that are perhaps best left in the past.
Who thought it was a good idea for the Black Ranger to be actually Black, the Yellow Ranger to be Asian, and the White Ranger to be White in real life?
Lolol TV shows as a kid were nuts! LOL.— George Trillstanza (@SIR_George_718) July 27, 2021
Even at the age of 38, I still can’t get over the fact that the creators of the Power Rangers pretty much said y’all two are going to be the Black and Yellow Ranger, respectively…
Many of the badass fight scenes are from the original Japanese version of the show.
How did we never question that Rita could see and hear everything around the whole planet with her telescope?
Rita Repulsa is a stalker! Damn. She was using that telescope like it was social media. All up in the Power Ranger's business. Chisme Patrol pic.twitter.com/m0dHMTUxYN— Mon (@thisdorkynerd) August 5, 2017
Let's be honest, all the rangers were totally in their 20s and looked it too!
David Fielding, who played the role of Zordon, only appeared on screen for a scene.
