Episode analysis
at Revisiting Power Rangers


  • During “Today on Power Rangers...”, the vocal version of the Power Rangers theme song is played instead of the instrumental version.
  • After Bulk is accidentally hit with the beach ball Zack and Trini are playing with, someone says “Sorry, Bulk,” but it is none of the Ranger teens. (02:36)
  • The cocoon was oriented on one circular face in the Sentai footage, with the axis aligned vertically, yet the US footage of the Rangers inside it had the cocoon horizontal. (07:07)
  • Inside the cocoon, each of the five Rangers bore a communicator around the outside of his or her morphed wrist. (07:11)
  • Red Ranger was briefly shown in the Dragonzord Battle Mode’s cockpit instead of that of the Tyrannosaurus Dinozord. (11:20)
  • The Megazord symbol was present at the back of the cockpit of Dragonzord Battle Mode. (12:35)
  • When the Rangers flipped down from the Megazord, each was shown holding a “Thunder Slinger”. (13:58)
  • To help the Rangers fight Scorpina’s giant pet worm, Tommy announced, “Right here, Rangers, morphed and ready!,” but he had been morphed and helping them since calling the Dragonzord to help against giant Babe Ruthless, whom the Rangers had just fought. (15:38)
  • When Tommy called the Dragonzord back to action, it walked out of the sea, yet it had just moments earlier disassembled from the Dragonzord Battle Mode formation. (15:43)
