Recap / Mighty Morphin' Power Rangers S1E3 Teamwork

Go To

A dumpsite that Trini and Kimberly are petitioning to close down is actually a trap caused by Rita and her minotaur. Also is the debut of Principal Caplan and the Power Weapons.


  • Accidental Hug: Bulk and Skull's Ho Yay fans are pleased when the two grab each other when trying to get Kimberly.
  • Action Girl: Kimberly and Trini get to show off their stuff away from the boys for the first half of this episode. Trini especially since she fights Goldar herself briefly.

  • Adapted Out: Kimberly's call for her Dinozord was unused because in Zyuranger there was a kid of the week in frame that would have confused viewers. This would be repeated in future episodes.
  • A Load of Bull: The Mighty Minotaur, especially after growing giant.
  • Combat Pragmatist: Kimberly in her Pteradactyl zord blasts at Goldar and some putties while they're human-sized.
  • Dean Bitterman and Reasonable Authority Figure: Mr. Caplan shows that he can zigzag between the two in his first appearance.
  • Early Installment Weirdness: Bulk and Skull are accompanied by a female punk named Sharkie (unnamed in the final version and played by stuntwoman Stella Angelova). She makes a few more appearances in the early episodes of this season before just vanishing without explanation.
  • Gasshole: Bulk belches a little to mock the girls' petition.

  • Green Aesop: The first of many in the franchise.
  • Innocuously Important Episode: Marks the introduction of the Power Weapons which they use to destroy the Minotaur near the end.
  • Silent Antagonist: Aside from a few grunts, the Minotaur does not speak.
  • Stock Footage Failure: The kid of the week from Zyuranger as mentioned above, can still be seen in a single wide shot
  • Team Spirit: The central theme of the episode besides the Green Aesop. The rangers and weapons coming together at the end is the only thing that saves the day.
