- younger robot son of King Mondo
When Rita, Zedd, and crew
made it to Serpentera during a lull in the
Quadrafighters' attack, Mondo smashed his staff against the balcony
railing, causing Klank and young Prince Sprocket to cower; Sprocket blamed
Klank for the blunder.
Prince Sprocket was Mondo's son, an eager student of his father.
Sprocket was heir apparent (meaning, under
existing circumstances, future king after Mondo) to the throne of the Machine Empire.
Sprocket ordered a Cog
flying in a Quadrafighter to destroy Rita and Zedd before
Sprocket told Mondo
that the Quadrafighters reported that
the Earth was defenseless and that Rita and Zedd (who had
fled in Serpentera) were out of the
After getting a bit of praise from Mondo, Sprocket proclaimed that he was the
brightest and that he should be king of everything; Mondo told him not to push it, saying
Sprocket's mouth was beginning to overload his gears.
Sprocket wanted to give the order to begin Mondo's ground attack.
When Mondo thought to
increase the volume of baby Joey's
crying, Sprocket didn't realize that the soundwaves could be used for
Sprocket later tried to claim the plan as his
own, but after Orbus and Sprocket were
done insulting each other, Mondo and Machina agreed that the plan was Mondo's.
After Boohoo's defeat, Sprocket and Orbus again exchanged insults without
interference from Mondo.
When Machina told the
others to come up with a plan, Klank
pointed out that he had come up with quite a few plans but they were all
ignored; Mondo offered Sprocket the chance
to come up with a plan.
Sprocket planned to send down a special pitching
machine (People Pitcher)
which, when a pitch was hit, would trap the batter inside; Sprocket
planned to use Rocky, Adam, and Shawn as bait to
catch the other Rangers, which would leave Mondo free to rule the world.
Later, Sprocket and Klank were arguing, but Orbus broke it up to point out that Bulk and Skull were close to ruining the
pitching machine plan.
On Earth, Sprocket was
fearful of the Zeo Rangers when Tommy demanded to know where Rocky's Zeonizer was,
and he blamed it on Klank, who then said
the Cogs had it.
Klank had found a
hidden pocket of lava underground just outside Angel Grove; Sprocket planned to pump out the
lava and use it to destroy the Rangers, but Klank and Orbus were upset because it was
Klank and Orbus
went to Digster's cave with
Sprocket to observe the dig.
When Sprocket, in the cave, heard Kat calling out for Smokey, he sent Digster and the Cogs after her, despite Mondo's earlier having called off the pursuit
Once Digster had been destroyed, Machina was upset, asking whose idea it had been
to destroy Angel Grove with lava; when
Sprocket said it was Klank's idea, Mondo was furious, and Machina reminded Mondo of his oil pressure.
to plant the transmitter Klank had built
to control Puppetman, but Mondo told him maybe next time and had Klank send the Cogs
Machina said the Rangers were in the area; Sprocket verified this,
saying the reports said so.
Rocky, Tanya, and Kat were extras in
the new Biff Starr movie Invasion of Blueface; Sprocket, watching
from nearby with Klank and Orbus, wanted
the monster costumes from the movie set to be in his own movie.
Sprocket planned to have Video Vulture capture the Rangers to make them the stars of his new movie,
Invasion of the Ranger Snatchers.
After the Rangers had
been captured in Sprocket's movie
dimension, Sprocket had silver Cogs working
the sound equipment in his control room.
Faucet fought Tommy and Tanya for a bit, but he was then gone, and the Rangers saw on a TV on the set a speeding bus out
of control; the Rangers traveled to that
portion of the movie and saved the people in the bus before the bus and
its malfunctioning robot driver went off a cliff.
After the people from the bus had vanished and
the Rangers had apparently returned to
reality, Sprocket was disappointed, as he'd wanted the bus to go off the
cliff with the Rangers in it.
Sprocket, Klank and
Orbus, and the Cogs were in "Buldont Studio."
Klank made up an alternate storyboard (with Japanese writing) showing their new monsters fighting the Rangers; the four monsters (only two of which had been stolen
from the Invasion of Blueface set)
then attacked the Rangers.
ship beamed Sprocket and Cogs down to the
water treatment plant where the Hydro
Contaminator was looking for water.
Sprocket told the Hydro Contaminator to get rid of the
Power Rangers, and then Sprocket would take
him to all the water he could ever want.
Watching the Hydro Contaminator fight the Rangers, Sprocket was impressed, and he said that
after this, maybe Mondo would let him rule
Mondo sent Sprocket
to Earth so they could use Rocky's metal-eating mutant plant to their
Sprocket watched as Cogs
stole Rocky's plant, as well as Skull's, which was a flower off Rocky's, from the greenhouse.
Sprocket reminded Mondo that it was Machina's birthday and told him that he should
get her a musician of her very own, and when Mondo planned send the Cogs after Angel Grove High's
mystery pianist (actually Skull), Sprocket
revealed that he'd already sent the Cogs.
After the Royal House of Gadgetry had watched the
teens's scrambling over a computer virus,
Sprocket thought to send down their own computer virus since everything
in Angel Grove seemed to be run by
computers, interrupting Klank before he
could suggest the same plan.
When Sprocket told Mondo that the failed computer virus scheme had
been Klank's idea, Mondo furiously swung his
staff at Klank, hitting him once.
Sprocket aimed the Machine Skybase's photon blaster and
successfully shot Billy's spacecraft, disabling
its communications and engines.
After Tommy had been
crushed by Kim's breakup letter, Mondo wanted to exploit the humans' emotional weaknesses, and Klank pointed out that they had a monster,
Robocupid who had a love ray.
Sprocket again got credit for Klank's idea.
When Sprocket whined that he wanted to go to test
Robocupid, Mondo said to was too dangerous and that he'd
have his fun once they were sure Robocupid was fully functional.
Mondo again gave Klank an assignment despite Sprocket's
Wanting to try boxing after watching Lt. Stone's lessons, Sprocket was in a Machine Empire boxing ring, boxing four Cogs.
Sprocket told Mondo
and Machina that he had a monster that would send the Rangers reeling.
While Adam was walking
home, Sprocket lured him into an industrial area and had Punchabunch fight him.
After giant Punchabunch had smashed his own
glove while pounding the Red Battlezord,
Sprocket demanded a rematch, summoning a trophy, with the miniaturized
Zeo Ranger Four on it, with green
energy flames from his fingertip; if Tommy won,
Adam would return to normal, but if Punchabunch won, all of the Rangers would all become his trophies.
Sprocket said Punchabunch was his favorite
After Tommy in the Red Battlezord had defeated giant Punchabunch in their rematch, Rocky told Sprocket they'd won and told him to give
Adam back; Sprocket did as promised, telling them
just to stay away from him; after he'd retreated, morphed Adam vanished from his trophy form and reappeared
When Mondo asked
Sprocket what he had to say for himself after the Rangers had won and Sprocket had let Adam get away, Sprocket replied, "Uh, like father,
like son?"; Machina told Sprocket not to sass
Almost immediately after Punchabunch's defeat and Mondo's disappointment, Sprocket went to Earth and overheard Tommy
and David's conversation about their being
adopted and given halves of the arrowhead
which contained very strong and old powers that they couldn't let fall
into evil hands.
different day, when Sprocket asked Machina
whether she knew that one of the Ranger teens had a brother, Machina chuckled and told him, "That's not so
strange, dear. Humans do that sort of thing.";
she acted as though the concept of siblings were foreign to Sprocket,
but, as later revealed in 440-TJOB, Sprocket
had an older brother, Prince Gasket.
When Sprocket wanted a new toy after hearing
about the Toy-A-Thon dance at the Youth
Center, Mondo complained that Sprocket
had already broken half of the Cogs in the army.
Machina recalled that
when they'd given Sprocket a lovely nuclear reactor, he'd only played
with the box.
Mondo said he would
get Sprocket a new toy if Sprocket promised to be very bad for the rest
of the millennium.
Mondo sent Sprocket
and his Toy robot to Earth, most likely so they wouldn't wreck the Machine Skybase.
The chromium magnet attached to Billy's remote-controlled toy truck dragged
Sprocket and the Toy robot along
as it had done to the Cogs, but Sprocket and the
Toy robot didn't appear to suffer
any damage from the magnet.
When the Rangers
summoned the Zeo Cannon to use on the Toy robot, Sprocket was excited that
the Rangers had a new toy too.
After the Toy
robot was destroyed, Sprocket wanted another new toy; Mondo agreed to give him another one, but only
if Sprocket agreed to take care of it;
Machina told him to "keep it away from those
On Sprocket's birthday, Mondo said it was hard to believe that the day
had finally arrived when Sprocket would become a man; according to
Machine tradition, Machina said, Sprocket had
to prove himself worthy of adulthood.
Sprocket's surprise present was Wrecking Ball, a giant robot in
the Machine Skybase's holding bay.
used a remote to control giant Wrecking Ball, but whenever
Sprocket's hands were shown, they were empty.
Sprocket had difficulty controlling giant Wrecking Ball; Mondo said Sprocket would be a man once he
practiced and then proved himself in battle against the Power Rangers; wowed with the idea of
destroying the Rangers, Sprocket said this was
the best birthday he'd ever had.
After Wrecking Ball was destroyed,
Sprocket apologized for failing, but Machina
said they were still proud of him, and Mondo
told Sprocket he'd become a man and taken his first step on his path to
destroying the Rangers, and that this called
for a celebration.
Apparently in elderly Tommy's story to his grandson, Klank invented a new weapon called the Bias Blaster, and Mondo sent Sprocket to Earth to use it on the teens.
Sprocket said they could take over the Earth now that the Bias Blaster had broken up the Rangers.
After Mondo had
caused the presents and decorations in the Youth Center to vanish, Sprocket was shown
outside on Earth standing on the pile of stolen
Empire was constructing a fleet of battleships in Angel Grove Forest, and Sprocket
reminded Mondo to tell Admiral Abominator that
Sprocket got to steer.
Machina said that Sprocket was their first-built
son, but, as later revealed in 440-TJOB,
Sprocket had an older brother, Prince
Gasket, who was actually their first-built son.
Holding his staff in front of Sprocket's face, Mondo was outraged by the possibility that the
Rangers were responsible for the pyramid (perhaps knowing that the energy
signature matched the Zeo Rangers' energy);
he told Sprocket to send Wolfbane
back to occupy the Rangers, then to find the
pyramid and have it destroyed.
On Earth, Sprocket showed
Klank and Orbus his invention which was
supposed to make monsters grow bigger than
Orbus's, but it actually shrank things.
Mondo was pleased
with Sprocket's shrinker, planning to shrink the Rangers.
Mondo, Sprocket, and
Cogs confronted Tommy and
Kat in the desert; after Sprocket had shrunk the two
Rangers and tossed them into their own
terrarium, Mondo left Sprocket to his bug
collecting, telling Sprocket to remember the last time when Sprocket had
forgotten to give them water.
Sprocket dropped a tarantula (which he called
Harry/Hairy) into the terrarium with Tommy and
After scaring Bulk and
Skull in Murphy's Mine, Sprocket, back outside, caught Gold Ranger removing the tiny Tommy and Kat from the
terrarium, and he angrily confronted the Gold
Ranger, summoning the Cogs to fight him.
Sprocket teleported away with a bowtie
effect when confronted by the three remaining Zeo Rangers.
Mondo had Klank present Sprocket with a surprise, his
very own Tarantabot.
Sprocket thought to turn all of the Earth's water into machine sludge; Machina and Mondo said that not only would it
eliminate the humans, but it would establish
the perfect environment for their machine army.
thought the workmanship on the Varox bounty
hunter was disgusting, Mondo liked him and
wanted to know where he'd come from; Sprocket guessed he was from some
second-rate evil empire.
Mondo took Sprocket
with him to Earth to learn about the Varox bounty hunter.
When monsters were
being coated with neo-plutonium
armor, Sprocket chose giant Silo
to test the armor, saying Silo was his favorite.
Mondo, with Sprocket
and Machina joining him, went to the desert outside Angel Grove to retrieve the buried Damocles Sword.
Machina reminded Mondo about the last time he'd used the Damocles Sword, and Sprocket
said Machina had said it was so terrible that
he'd hidden the sword so he wouldn't be tempted to use it.
Mondo told Machina and Sprocket to be silenced; he said that
had been a thousand years ago, and he knew exactly what he was doing
Sprocket was apparently less than a thousand
Machina and Sprocket
watched giant Mondo fight the Super Zeo Megazord from the rubble of a
building in Angel Grove.
When giant King Mondo
was destroyed by the Super Zeo
Megazord, Machina said she'd known this
would happen again; when Sprocket was surprised to hear that it had
happened before, Machina reassured her son
that Mondo would be back, and stronger than
Louie invited Machina and Sprocket to come down to personally
watch the fight between the Rangers and giant
Tough Tusks, and they came;
Sprocket thanked Louie for inviting them,
saying he loved a good fight.
In a warehouse, Sprocket watched as Louie failed to force Auric to destroy the Earth;
after swatting the tiki away angrily, Louie let Sprocket have it and the key.
Sprocket took the tiki to
a location which appeared to be just outside a structure of the Machine Skybase on the moon; around them was a brown, cratered rocky
terrain with the Earth in the sky.
Upon making Auric grow
with the key, Sprocket told Auric that he was "Sprocket, the small and meek,"
and that he needed Auric's help.
Sprocket told Auric that
the Power Rangers were a team of
supervillains that planned to destroy the Earth;
Sprocket cried with the help of a hose connecting him with a pump
(bearing the Machine Empire symbol)
which Klank operated from a crevice in
the rock wall nearby; Machina stood beside Klank, noting that Sprocket was such a
After realizing on Earth
that the Rangers fought evil for Zordon, giant Auric, not liking to be deceived, grabbed the
fleeing Sprocket and blew him from his hand, sending Sprocket crashing
into a tree.
As Machina and Sprocket
were being held as prisoners by Cogs, Louie had Klank read his decree in the balcony room;
written in gear symbols on a sheet of copper-colored metal, it read,
"From this moment forward, let it be known that the leader in supreme
command of the Machine Empire is Louie Kaboom! Each and every machine shall
hearby owe allegiance to him, forever!"; Louie then had the Cogs take Machina and
Sprocket away to be thrown in the dungeon.
Standing somewhere on the moon with Sprocket, Machina didn't know what was happening when red
energy crackled beside them; neither she nor Sprocket seemed to know in
advance that Gasket and Archerina would appear.
Machina was apparently
delighted that Gasket, her other son, had
returned; Sprocket was less than excited by the appearance of his
brother and sister-in-law.
Word had reached Gasket and Archerina that Mondo was away, and they were there to ensure
that Machina and Sprocket were protected, and
to battle the Power Rangers; Machina told them of Louie Kaboom, and Gasket, as heir to the Machine Empire, swore to throw him out.
According to Zordon,
Sprocket was Mondo's second-built son.
Gasket, with a
map, scouted out an area beside Angel Grove
Lake with Sprocket; Gasket thought
that the area would make an excellent location for their Machine
Kingdom, and when Sprocket pointed out that they already had a
headquarters on the moon, Gasket said that once he took over as king,
changes would be made.
Sprocket wanted to be king.
After making Tommy
vanish, Gasket anticipated that the Rangers would crumble with their leader gone, and
when Machina witnessed his achievement, she
would want him to rule the entire Machine
Gasket sobbed when
the Rangers destroyed Cruel Chrome; he was distraught
because he'd almost beaten the Rangers and he
felt he should be king; Sprocket tried to encourage Gasket and make him feel better.
Machina, in the Machine Skybase balcony room, was excited
to learn about Gasket's surprise; she
called Gasket her number-one son, and
when Sprocket protested that he'd thought he was her number-one son, she
told him not to be silly, as he was the baby.
Sprocket took Klank and Cogs to
the park to ambush the Rangers to impress Machina and earn the crown; Sprocket wasn't
concerned that Gasket also had a big plan
in the works.
Due to his slightly altered brain chemistry from
his recent exposure to Gasket's Brain Drain, Tommy was one of the few people on the planet who noticed the day repeating from the
presence of Gasket's Chronosapios; while almost
everyone else on the planet (including Zordon and Alpha) was
unaware of the repetition, Tommy (as well as
Prince Sprocket, who became trapped in the time loop when he went to Earth to set an ambush) had a sense of deja vu
about the day's events.
When Gasket sent
Protectron to fight the Rangers, Sprocket sent the Cogs to finish the Rangers
Sprocket asked Machina
what humans saw in the noise they called music,
and Machina didn't know.
launched a full-scale assault on Angel
Grove, Sprocket whined that Gasket
was at it again: he'd made his own monster
and was attacking Angel Grove without
Sprocket and Machina.
After Machina lamented
that they didn't seem to be able to make monsters like Mondo's, Mondo
returned, delighting Sprocket.
In an industrial area with trees and sky in the
background, Gasket and Archerina used two sets of headphones and a
small dish device to listen to the conversation between Sprocket and the
newly-returned King Mondo in the Machine Skybase.
After Sprocket told Mondo that Gasket had tried to take over his empire
while he was away, Mondo, not surprised,
planned to teach Gasket a thing or two
when he got his hands on Gasket.
Sprocket throught for giant Cog Changer and Impursonator to combine into a
single monster, and when Mondo ordered the
monsters to unite, giant Impursonator latched onto the
top of giant Cog Changer's
When Gold Ranger
grew weak as the Rangers battled Cogs in the desert, Gasket and Archerina stood over him as Gasket told Jason to
surrender his powers to him or be destroyed.
Sprocket and Klank teleported in, and Sprocket told Gasket Mondo was
looking for him; Gasket angrily asked
Sprocket what he'd told Mondo, forgetting
When Gasket said
his plans were ruined with Mondo back,
Sprocket said he had a plan he wanted to tell Gasket.
Sprocket suggested that Gasket have Orbus enlarge him to giant size; Gasket liked the idea, thinking it would
please Mondo, but not knowing that
Sprocket's intention was for Gasket to be
destroyed in battle so that Sprocket could earn Mondo's favor.
After seeing the Zeo
Ultrazord destroy giant Gasket and Archerina, Sprocket, at the lake with Klank, was delighted that his brother was
finally gone, but Gasket and Archerina then materialized, normal size again,
As Zedd and Rita drove away in their RV
after giving Sprocket a present as a peace offering, Sprocket and Klank waved happily, and Mondo realized that Zedd wasn't so bad after all (said in a
The present from Rita and
Zedd was actually a bomb which blew the Royal House of Gadgetry into pieces on the
surface of the moon; amidst the debris were
Sprocket's disembodied torso, as well as his head and a forearm.
Despite being present earlier in the Machine Skybase, Sprocket wasn't on Phantom Ranger's home planet when Zordon's
energy wave hit, so his fate is uncertain.
