Mistakes

  • Billy (in Kimberly’s body) wore his glasses, even though Kimberly and Billy’s eyes stayed with their proper bodies after the brain switch. (04:03)
  • Billy flipped the switch down to activate the machine and didn’t have to switch it back to turn it off. When Bulk & Skull used the device, the switch had been flipped back up. (05:48)
  • Alpha’s lower chest lights were momentarily red rather than yellow. (10:41)
  • To prepare to morph, the teens merely touched their communicators. (10:59)
  • Alpha’s lower chest lights switched back and forth repeatedly between being a large distance apart from each other rather and right next to each other. (11:55)
  • Rita seemed to be holding a different genie’s lamp as she watched the fight from the mountains, but Alpha had the lamp in the Command Center at the time. (16:20)
  • Zordon briefly had a hole in the superimpose effect of his cheek. (17:08)
  • Billy and Kimberly briefly stopped convulsing during the process to switch them back to normal. (17:57)
  • Kimberly (in Billy’s body) flipped the switch down to activate the machine and didn’t have to switch it back to turn it off. When Bulk & Skull arrived to be switched back, the switch had been flipped back up. (18:23)
