Other


The Mighty Morphin Power Rangers Fan Club Video is not included in the above episode list because it never aired on TV, never received an episode number, and was never referenced in-show; it was also included as an extra rather than an episode in the DVD box set. One might also question the fact that the teens are interviewed in various locales — the Juice Bar included — about their lives as Rangers. The video does, however, include an interesting account of Rita and Zordon's backstory; see their respective pages for more information.

The lost pilot (as it's called on this wiki) is not included above because it was ignored and supplanted by the aired version of "Day of the Dumpster." (A "lost episode" special which included this lost pilot mostly in its original form, is also mentioned on the Lost Galaxy page.)
