Product Description

After 10,000 years of imprisonment, the evil sorceress Rita Repulsa and her loyal minions are freed when astronauts on a routine mission in space accidentally open her dumpster prison on the Moon. Filled with rage, Rita decides to conquer the nearest planet: Earth. But her archnemesis, the heroic sage Zordon, has been patiently waiting in preparation for this day. With the assistance of his wisecracking robotic sidekick Alpha 5, Zordon recruits a team of five teenagers with attitude (Jason, Zack, Kimberly, Billy and Trini) to receive superpowers beyond their wildest dreams so they can defend the Earth as the Mighty Morphin Power Rangers. Aided by giant robotic vehicles modeled after dinosaurs called Zords, the Power Rangers fight back against the evil alien hordes of Rita Repulsa. The start of the Power Rangers phenomenon!

Fox Kids' Saturday morning action-adventure series ranks among the more colorful shows of the 1990s. When evil intergalactic empress Rita Repulsa (Soga Machiko with voice by Barbara Goodson), who dresses like Flash Gordon's Ming the Merciless and cackles like H.R. Pufnstuf's Witchiepoo, escapes from her Space Dumpster and sets out to conquer the Earth, Zordon (David Fielding), a Wizard of Oz-like projection, drafts five plucky high school students, Jason (Austin St. John), Zack (Walter Jones), Billy (David Yost), Trini (Thuy Trang), and Kimberly (Felicity's Amy Jo Johnson), to keep her in check (a sixth will come later). First, Zordon zaps them to his mountaintop command center, where his automaton Alpha, who often exclaims "Ay-yi-yi-yi-yi," supplies the quintet with belt buckles that transform them into spandex-clad fighting machines with dinosaur Zords--tyrannosaur, mastodon, pterodactyl, triceratops, and saber-toothed tiger--which collectively form the Transformers-like Megazord, just as their weapons form the Megasword (yes, it's all as silly as it sounds). When they aren't fighting off Rita's putty patrol (babbling men in silver bodysuits), they hang out at the Angel Grove youth center practicing gymnastics and martial arts and trading insults with resident troublemakers Bulk and Skull (Paul Schrier and Jason Narvy). Just as Billy, the brain of the group, invents contraptions to help them fight off evildoers, like communications devices and Rad Bug, a turbo-charged Volkswagen, Rita's monster-maker, Finster, conjures up gnomes, toads, and other creatures to bedevil them. The dialogue is cheesy and the low-budget special effects recall the slapstick world of Sid and Marty Krofft. Despite complaints about the cartoon violence, this Japanese-American coproduction is mostly harmless fun, though the frequent food fights, squealing metal-guitar score, and repetitive storyline--rangers foil the aliens and put the bullies in their place--may drive some adults around the bend. --Kathleen C. Fennessy

5.0 out of 5 stars At last! Thank you Shout Factory! May 14, 2012
By Bob02
Ok, if you don't want to be bombarded with 90s nostalgia, skip this review right now. But if you care to take a trip down memory lane for a minute or two, then read on by all means. One more thing: this review is written from the perspective of a totally blind viewer. Thus, I won't be discussing picture quality or anything of that sort. Naturally, that type of stuff bores me to tears. Read about it in someone else's review if you dig it. Anyway, onward!

As a kid of the early to mid 90s, this show meant so much to me. I started watching it during the summer of 1994, a few months before Lord Zedd made his monsterous debut. So I guess I came into the series somewhat later than some of you guys. But as a bright eyed kid of 10, the show blew me away and I remember waking up every morning that summer around 7 a.m. just to watch megazord kick some monster butt. I was hooked.

My saint of a mom bought me all the zord systems up til Zeo when I stopped collecting. I taped as many episodes as I could via Fox Kids weekday afternoons because I loved collecting the show.

I suppose I was one of a small number of blind guys who watched the show, and have my little bro to thank for introducing me to the series as well as helping me get a feel for transforming and combining each zord system. Ah, the fun the two of us had each summer when I'd visit him in Memphis, playing with those freakin toys and watching the myriad of taped episodes. So it's about time Shout released this series. I gave all my PR toys away many years ago to the poor. But just having this series on DVD all the way up to Power Rangers in Space will be enough for me.

This was my favorite show growing up. Time life has teamed up with shout factory and are releasing the 1st 7 seasons mighty moprhin through lost galaxy. It is going for $219 or so free shipping which breaks down to about $32 a season . If you order with in the next few days you will get 10% off for fathers daay use code daddydouble and it is also free shipping I saved $22 so my total was under $200 like 198 free shipping and you can pay in installments. So that breaks it down to about $28 a season. Update 8-15-12 this is split into 2 sets. The first set is Mighty Morhin Power Rangers the complete series. The other set is seasons 4-7 zeo thru lost galaxy. There is also 3 bonus discs only avaiable from these sets. The sets are nice there is a booklet in each one about the show cast and episodes. The picture is pretty good the disc menu is easy. Not at all to bad.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great childhood show May 23, 2012
By Becky
This is probly in my opinion the best Power Rangers series of them all and the only one I really cared about and grew up with. I quit watching it after they changed from the original to ninjas or something like in the Ivan Ooze movie.

I am SO GLAD to see this finally coming out on DVD!!!! I really hope they decide to release even more of the original series because its the only one I want and I want it badly!!!

5.0 out of 5 stars And so it begins May 5, 2012
By K
So finally it begins, I was wondering when Shout Factory was gonna release these. I grew up watching Power Rangers from Mighty Morphin all the way to the current series Samurai, and I have to say I have loved every second of it! But I was greatly disappointed when I tried to obtain Zeo on video and there were no tapes available. So this is really exciting for me! I'm looking forward to getting each and every dvd set because this series is an important part of my childhood. Ironic enough I was watching MMPR on the xbox the other day, didnt have a clue that the dvds would be out so soon, but this is excellent news! I cant wait!

5.0 out of 5 stars WAY COOL SERIES! August 19, 2012
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
This DVD will be cool! This coming from the mouth of a 21 year old 90's kid. The DVD contains the first 30 epidsodes of Mighty Morphin Power Rangers Season 1 on 3 discs. I for one came into Power Rangers during the Zeo season. As such, I have never seen MMPR, so I'm very excited to recieve this product! Now, there is a box set with all 3 seasons of MMPR, though it's a bit more expensive than this. If you are a 90s kid like me, you will definately have to get this DVD. Garunteed to give you nostalgia or your money back! ;)

5.0 out of 5 stars It's Morphin Time! August 13, 2012
Oh yeah. MMPR on DVD! I have the two feature films (the other beiing the Turbo movie) already. But my wish of the shows being on DVD has finally been granted. I'm gonna hold out for the seasons 1-7 set cause that way, I'll have everything at once with 3 Bonus discs full of awesome features!

Please support Shout Factory so other shows like Beetleborgs, VR Troopers, Mystic Knights, etc releases will follow.

My favorite Power Rangers era is the original six with Tommy as Green Ranger and the serious Zedd (he later became comedic and silly). All the Zords have their place in history as I liked them all really. They all had their unique special stuff that helped the Rangers, Zordon and Alpha 5 were the best.

RIP Thuy Trang (Trini) - hope she is spoken of somewhere in the set though an actual tribute to her would be best.
