Power Rangers is now 20 years old

Feel ancient yet?

THOSE MIGHTY MORPHIN’ Power Rangers turned 20 years old last week.

The series, which was adapted from a Japanese series called Super Sentai, has broadcast over 700 episodes since it first hit screens on August 28, 1993.

Jason, Zack, Billy, Trini, Kimberly and Thomas were the original power rangers, leading the way for the 18 generations and cast switch-ups that have followed.

Here’s reminder a of some great things about the show.

Maybe it’s the fantastic opening that is engraved in our brains forever?

How about the intense anticipation waiting for the moment they would morph?

Or the super realistic fight scenes?

This kid has some flick on him. Powerful stuff.




The villains were ridiculous.

We’ll never forget their truce with the turtles. In a word–overwhelming.

The franchise is still going strong, with the latest generation of rangers, Power Rangers Megaforce, broadcasting on Nickelodeon this year.

They look completely different to the originals, but we’re sure it’s as ridiculous as ever.
