Mighty Morphin Power Rangers: Series 1 (1993-1994)Edit

The first series has been given mostly positive reception.

TurboEdit

Turbo was a critical failure. Its feature film, Turbo: A Power Rangers Movie , was a box office bomb and the critical reception for its movie was negative. While ratings for the show had declined during Zeo, Turbo featured such low ratings that they could be considered truly poor. Such bottom-dwelling ratings for the Power Rangers franchise was unheard of at the time, and with the realization that Power Rangers as a fad was over, Fox executives decided to cancel the series after its sequel season was completed.

The list of problems drawing the ire of fans included:

  • The departure of Steve Cardenas from the Power Rangers franchise. It was a rumor that Cardenas was injured while performing a stunt towards the end of Power Rangers Zeo and as a result, had to leave the series and as such, his character Rocky DeSantos was phased out in a similar manner, but it was actually due to contract disagreements.
  • This was the only series to have a pre-teen to be a ranger ( Justin Stewart ). The Justin character is usually criticized in the fandom.
  • The series' villains were filled with unimpressive comical humor, which audiences disliked.
  • The Megazord battles from its Carranger footage often had staggered edits and rough cuts.
  • Carranger was comedic, and made fun of itself as well as the rest of the Super Sentai series, while Turbo was attempted to be given a very serious tone.  This resulted in rough transitions between the Carranger footage and the scenes filmed for Turbo.

The long-term reputation of Turbo wasn't helped any further by the irony in that its original source (as noted - Carranger) was an enormous success in Japan. Fortunately for Power Rangers, the follow up of this season was the antithesis of Turbo and rescued the franchise from cancellation.
