How They Cobbled Together The Mighty Morphin' Power Rangers From Footage of a Completely Different Japanese TV Show

Why not just take those fight scenes, cobble together a random story around them using new actors, and then package it to kids? Haim reasoned that kids wouldn’t really care all that much about the plot given that the show contained giant dinosaur robots and fun fight scenes. To this end, some episodes of Mighty Morphin’ Power Rangers used footage and fight sequences from multiple episodes of Kyoryu Sentai Zyuranger that were edited together to better fit the new story lines. A conscious decision was also made to make the Power Rangers a diverse group of teenager to maximise the show’s appeal. While Fox and Saban did eventually create some original fight scenes using these props, the costumes were mostly worn by the actors, sans helmet, to flesh out pre-recorded fight scenes.
