  • When young Bulk and Skull told Mr. Caplan about Goldar (a "gold baboon"), Photomare (a "camera monster"), Alpha (a "little red martian" chasing them), and the photograph containing the six kids, Mr. Caplan dragged them off to detention for lying and had them each write an essay on the evils of lying.
  • A bit later, Alpha teleported into the main hallway in Angel Grove High School in front of Mr. Caplan; Mr. Caplan said hello, then Alpha realized he'd teleported to the wrong hallway and vanished.

  • Miss Rodriguez, apparently an assistant principal, was in charge of the school while Mr. Caplan was on vacation.


  • Speaking at the teens' graduation, Mr. Caplan gave the following speech: "And for the last four years, I watched you all grow and learn, and it has given me hope that the future of this great nation is secure. I am so proud of all of you, as you should be proud of yourselves."
  • When the graduating three teens noticed that Justin was late, Adam left the ceremony to call Zordon; after learning that Justin was supposed to call if there had been trouble, Adam soon called Kat and Tanya away as well, and they rushed off to take care of an emergency, as they told Mr. Caplan.
