Episode analysis
at Revisiting Power Rangers


  • After Melissa became confused and bumped into another student, Kimberly apologized for not signing the moves. But, Kimberly had been doing her dance instructions in sign language since the beginning of the episode. (03:37)
  • In one scene, Finster was shown carving a monster that “eats cars and smells like a fish,” but then a model of Pudgy Pig was on his work table. (04:16)
  • Despite an earlier tearing sound, Bulk’s pants were still seemingly intact for the third and final dance move. (06:58)
  • Gnarly Gnome’s boots somehow became untied during the course of his nap. (12:25)
  • After Melissa had led the teens to the Gnarly Gnome’s cave, Kimberly signed to Melissa to “hide here, and wait for me, okay?” but then verbally told Melissa to her back to hide behind the bushes and hurry. (13:03)
  • After the Rangers morphed, Pink Ranger was temporarily gray. (13:16)
  • Gnarly Gnome wasn’t holding his rake when he said “Never” to the Red Ranger, but was in the previous and following shots. (13:28)
  • During this Power Blaster formation, the Power Axe was called the “Cosmic Cannon,” the Power Bow was called the “Battle Bow,” the Power Daggers were called “Dino Daggers,” and the Power Lance was called the “Mighty Mace”. (13:43)
  • Despite the Gnarly Gnome being hit with the blast from the Power Blaster and the blast ceasing, it was once again shown being fired as Gnarly Gnome was falling. (14:07)
  • When Red Ranger pulled his Power Coin out of his Power Morpher to form his Power Crystal, his Power Morpher had “Zyuranger” and “Kyoryusentai” written on it rather than “Power Rangers”; the same was true of the other Power Morphers in following split screen shot. (15:21)
  • In a scene in the Pterodactyl Dinozord Cockpit, Pink Ranger was temporarily gray. (15:29)
  • When Jason summoned the Megazord’s Power Sword, he called for the “Mega Sword”. (16:57)
  • The Power Sword flipped between shots - it flew down from the sky point-down, but it was point-up when the Megazord caught it. (17:00)
  • The hypnotized girls were unaware of what had happened, so the unfamiliar voice that said that Kimberly “should’ve seen the Power Rangers” “they were great”, could have only been Melissa’s. (17:26)
