Growing up, Power Rangers was my motivation. I watched every episode of Mighty Morphin’, collected (and destroyed) as many toys as possible, dressed up as several different colors, and fought not only my friends who had to borrow my costumes, but also those highly animated and dangerous trees in my backyard. Life as a kid was entertaining.
I was always a massive tomboy, and when the neighborhood kids and I got together to play some Power Rangers outside, it always ended up in a massive argument… because I didn’t want to be the pink or yellow ranger. I wanted to be the first female red ranger (before it actually happened in the series). And when that didn’t work out, I always slipped on my white ranger costume and caused some chaos against invisible baddies.
Power Rangers even released some video games, the first ones more boring than anything else, but Power Ranger the Movie… The Game is a game I wish I still had. The Sega version, not Super Nintendo. Ivan Ooze gave me the heebie jeebies! And does anyone else remember the Ivan Ooze silly putty that was sold? I ended up dropping it on the ground…
But what’s even more exciting now is the fact that Power Rangers Super Megaforce will be having the super ultra-cool all-rangers battle this year. What’s even better is the fact that they’ve already started filming. Here’s a photo I saw yesterday on Twitter. See who you can pick out in the background.
To all of the Power Rangers fans, who were your favorite rangers? And if you could be any color/season ranger, which one would you be?
