* DawsonCasting: Do you honestly know any highschoolers 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 they made them in college.
** Made worse by the fact that the characters were retroactively de-aged from seniors to freshmen after the first season was a success. Originally Austin St. John and Thuy Trang (and Jason David Frank (19 at the time)) were going to be plausibly the same age as their character.
** The second season wasn't as bad, but still fairly notable. Of the four (including Kat) replacements, Johnny Yong Bosch was 18, Karan Ashley was 19, Steve Cardenas was 20, and Catherine Sutherland was also 20. Add in the remaining 2, and you get another 20-year-old (Jason) and a 25-year-old (David). Before Kat, however, Amy was 23 and still on the show.

* 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.

* TheDanza: Catherine Sutherland as Katherine Hillard, [[SpellMyNameWithAnS though only by proxy.]]
** 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.

** An [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Mcn5Iemz0SU early pitch reel has been uncovered]] and put on one of the Shout! Factory DVDs. The show would be called ''Galaxy Rangers'' (which was Zyuranger's international title). The characters were going to be: Victor Lee (Red Ranger), an Asian martial artist. Zack Taylor (Black Ranger), a detective with an attitude. Kimberly Harte (Pink Ranger), a clumsy aerobics instructor. Billy Cranston (Blue Ranger), an athletic heartthrob with a body of steel. Trini Crystal (Yellow Ranger), a struggling, white novelist. Note how Zack is described as "green", and how all five are designated "Biorhythm (color)"- this, along with the 80s attire and aged-looking American footage, would suggest they cannibalized this from their failed pilot for an adaptation of ''Series/ChoudenshiBioman'' in 1986.
