The Other Darrin: Divatox. She was portrayed by Hilary Shepard Turner in The Movie, but while she was on maternity leave, she was subsequently replaced by Carol Hoyt in the television series for the first half of the series. During the second half of the season, Turner reprised her role, continuing well enough into Power Rangers in Space.
The change in actresses between the film and the show also brought about a change in costume and personality. Divatox's costume in the film was much more revealing and exposed a lot of cleavage, while her costume in the show was a little more covered up. Hoyt's Divatox was more calculating and evil while Turner portrayed Divatox as more of a hysterical diva.
Promoted Fanboy: Blake Foster was a huge fan of the show and was absolutely thrilled when he was offered the part of the Blue Ranger. Even at Power Morphicon in 2010, he said that being a Power Ranger was every kid's dream and that he kept his helmet and costume.
Troubled Production: Producer Jonathan Tzachor wanted to embrace the source footage Gekisou Sentai Carranger's slapstick comedy and then story editor Doug Sloan wanted to continue Power Rangers Zeo's more serious bent of the franchise growing up. This led to severe mood whiplash, like a villain planting bombs that Rangers needed to deactivate before they blew up and kill people while having goofy concepts like Tommy reading the new zords' instruction manual. Eventually Doug Sloan left and was replaced with Judd Lynn right when it came time to jettison the old cast (save the new kid appeal character they just brought in) and replace them with a new cast. As Judd Lynn was in agreement on playing closer to Carranger's comedy, the product became a lot more cohesive in the show's second half.
There were originally plans for Bulk and Skull to get their own Fawlty Towers-esque spin-off series, where they run a hotel with a Mexican Elvis Presley impersonator called "El Vez". This explains why both Paul Schrier and Jason Narvy left the series so that the producers could add chimpanzees to the show roster (with Schrier and Narvy still providing voices, though).
Somewhere exists a directors cut of the Turbo movie. Around forty minutes of footage cut from the final product...
The fifth revision of the script gave Justin a lot more motivation, explained the Turbo powers, explained why after they didn't pass the powers off to someone else. Oh sure, there are still some plot holes but it mostly patched them all up...
Originally only Jason David Frank was supposed to leave, having expressed interest in leaving since Zeo. Saban convinced him to stay through the first half of Turbo to let them write out his character properly while they go look for his replacement. Next thing you know, Catherine Sutherland announced that she planned on leaving and moving on to other projects as well; and so, the writers thought of perhaps having Johnny Yong Bosch and Nakia Burrise stay until the end of Turbo with their characters serving as the more seasoned, veteran Rangers (along with Blake Foster's character) who help out the two new team members and with either one of them becoming the leader (meaning that we could have had 6 Red Rangers up to date who were not leaders if this had happened back then). Eventually, during production of the first half of Turbo, the executives decided to get rid of all the veteran Rangers except for Justin, much to the shock of Bosch and Burrise (as with Foster, who was very sad to see all of them leave at once; he eventually grew to be just as fond of his newer cast mates though — but, that's another story) who found out about it through an ad on a newspaper — calling for auditions to fill in 4 Ranger spots: Red, Pink, Yellow, and Green — that someone from the hair and makeup department had shown them. Ouch...
As mentioned on the Main Page, a reveal of the romance between Jason and Kimberly could have happened if it wasn't edited out of the final draft of the film.
An unfilmed episode, titled "Rangers in Concert", originally planned to be the mid-season finale, was set to focus on a number of characters. This would have included: Carlos, whose surname was originally "Chavez"; Ashley, originally "Missy"; Lt. Stone's niece from "Cars Attack", Jenny Hunter (originally called "Ashley"); and Tanya's KAGV intern and clear T.J. prototype, Michael. Said episode was also to have the Blue Senturion show the current Power Rangers - who would've fought Rockin' Roach - the full Millennium Message, allowing them to know who their replacements would be in "Passing the Torch".
Divatox was suppose to be revealed as Dimitria's twin sister see Aborted Arc on the main page.
In an podcast interview with a fansite in 2014, Hilary Shepard Turner revealed that Divatox was originally written with Grace Jones in mind.
