* BeamMeUpScotty: JohnnyYongBosch has said that people are always asking him to say "[[TotallyRadical Morphinominal]]." Adam ''never'' said that during the show, that kind of slang was phased out before the end of the first season while Adam didn't show up until the middle of the second season. He would eventually say it years later in the [[Series/PowerRangersOperationOverdrive "Once A Ranger"]] ReunionShow.

* TroubledProduction:
** Season 1 hit its troubles when it turned out the series was more ''popular'' than anticipated. So when Fox Kids ordered an additional 20 episodes for Season 1, Saban asked TOEI to make new fight footage from ''Zyuranger'' exclusively for ''Power Rangers'', known to fans as Zyu2, due to the original usable ''Zyuranger'' being exhausted (even so, they made two episodes which recycled a lot of already used footage in different context to kill time until they got the Zyu2 stuff). The original plan was to do even more exclusive footage for ''Power Rangers'' and introduce upgraded Dinozords, but because of the cost, it was decided to just adapt ''Dairanger''[='=]s monster and zord footage instead with only 25 Zyu2 fights filmed.
** Season 2 had it even worse. The last ten episodes spilled over to Season 2, which created a new problem when Saban and Bandai wanted to introduce new zords to get new toys on the shelves in time for the holidays. The decision was made to hack the ''Dairanger'' mecha footage prematurely, resulting in two different sources of footage being spliced together for the zord battles. The mecha from ''Dairanger'' would launch an attack and then cut to footage of the Zyu2 monster taking the hit and vice-versa. After the Zyu2 footage was bled dry, the situation was completely reversed. Now, the monsters came from ''Dairanger'', meaning the zord battle didn't have to be spliced together, but since most of the ''Dairanger'' monster costumes were unusable for American footage and ''Power Rangers'' continued to use the ''Zyuranger'' costumes, the majority of ''Dairanger'' monsters never once appeared on screen with the Rangers. Instead, most of the ground fights were Rangers fighting Z-putties in American footage with the ''Dairanger'' monster barking orders in completely isolated footage before Zedd made the monster grow. To top it off, Austin St. John, Thuy Trang and Walter Jones were let go halfway through Season 2 due to contract disputes with the producers and during the interim of writing the replacements into the show, the production team had to use stand ins and recycled footage from earlier episodes to make it seem like the departed cast members were still on the show until they were able to write them out.
** When production ran longer than expected for the movie, the TV series production was forced to film in Australia, leading to heavy use of stock footage for scenes that required sets they couldn't access at the time, such as the Command Center.

* [[MissingEpisode Lost Episode]]: The original {{Pilot}} for ''Mighty Morphin' Power Rangers'' was advertised and presented as such on Fox Kids. Notable changes include the casting of the Yellow Ranger as Audri [=DuBois=] as opposed to Thuy Trang, Zordon being known as "Zoltar", and the Zords being referred to as "Droids".
** There's also a second variation on the pilot, which Tony Oliver shows exclusively at conventions.

** The original [=Zyu2=] footage. From all accounts, it seems that the original masters were edited over with footage of the ''Dairanger'' mechs. Though not all of it: starting in 2014, [[http://youtu.be/91BoKNRb2uY Zyu2 footage from Season 2 started getting releases]].

** An ironic case. Jason Geiger earned the StageName Austin St. John (inspired by ''Series/TheSixMillionDollarMan'') as his agency thought it wasn't a strong name... and he ended up playing a BadAss called Jason. According to Tommy's actor Jason David Frank however, it was due to a disagreement the two had when they first met backstage.

* CutAndPasteTranslation: By the time Season 3 came, material from three different ''Sentai'' shows were being used in addition to American made footage. "Ninja Quest Part I" alone used Zyuranger footage, Zyu2 footage, Dairanger footage, Kakuranger footage and U.S.-original footage. ''Damn''.

* CaliforniaDoubling: The Command Center, the Power Rangers' millenia-old headquarters created by Zordon in an undisclosed mountainous area near what would eventually become Angel Grove, California, is The House of the Book performance hall and library building at the American Jewish University, Brandeis-Bardin Campus in Simi Valley, California. It's shown up in quite a few other productions, including ''Film/StarTrekVITheUndiscoveredCountry'', as the main building at Camp Khitomer.

*** The switchoff is notably different: Fielding used a terrible, cheap imitation of a BritishAccent, possibly to make Zordon sound more sophisticated. It's worth noting that Fielding was the one whose head we always saw as Zordon.

* DawsonCasting: Do you honestly know any high schoolers that look that old? Well, out of the original five, Austin St John was 18 and Thuy Trang was 19, but Walter Emanuel Jones and Amy Jo Johnson were 22 and David Yost was 24. It would have been much more believable if their characters were written as college students.
** Made worse by the fact that the characters were retroactively de-aged from seniors to freshmen after the first season was a success. Originally, the characters played by Austin St. John, Thuy Trang and Jason David Frank (who were all 19 at the time) were going to be plausibly the same age as the three aforementioned actors.

* RetroactiveRecognition: Before he was [[Series/MalcolmInTheMiddle Malcolm's Dad]] or [[Series/BreakingBad Walter White]], Creator/BryanCranston voiced several [[MonsterOfTheWeek Monsters of the Week]] on this show (Billy Cranston was even named after him). Even [[HilariousInHindsight funnier]] considering that he has been cast as Zordon in TheMovie.
