The three basic rules for being a Power Ranger are mentioned for the first time in this episode:
1. Never use your power for personal gain.
2. Never escalate a battle unless Rita forces you.
3. Keep your identity secret. No one may know you are a Power Ranger.
The Rangers morph by shouting, "It's Morphin' Time!" (starting with "High Five"), and then holding their Power Morphers forward (usually removing them from behind their back, as if they're stored on the opposite side of their belt from the buckle), and calling out their respective Dinozord's dinosaur name within the Morpher-framed morphing sequence.
When Rita and the other villains are on the moon they are clearly shooting on Earth because there is a blue sky. On the moon the sky is always black because there is very little atmosphere (O3 and Nitrogen).
When Zordon introduces Rita Repulsa to the teens, in the viewing globe, right before Rita appears, you can just see Barza, the equivalent of Zordon in the Super Sentai show.
After they morph, Zordon has Alpha teleport the teens to Angel Grove to fight Goldar, leaving the Putties right outside the Command Center.
When Goldar grows, his wings disappear. According to the story, however, his wings were removed for being defeated by the rangers. I doubt Rita would have had the chance to remove them during the grow spell, considering Goldar didn't even fight the rangers before he grew (she only made Goldar big because the putties were being defeated, she said so herself.)
In this episode and most other Season 1 episode where the Megazord is formed, there is a shot from behind the Rangers in the cockpit. However, in this shot, the Pink and Yellow Rangers are seated in front of the Black and Blue Rangers when they are always seated behind in regular cockpit shots.
The Ranger teens, in the second scene, are wearing Communicators, which they won't get from Billy until the next episode (this is because that scene was filmed with a much later episode, as you can see from the notes).
Zordon says that each ranger will draw power from the beings they call dinosaurs. The saber-tooth tiger and mastodon aren't dinosaurs, merely pre-evolutionary forms of the tiger and elephant. Therefore the term "dinozords" shouldn't apply to all five zords.
The Rangers had their Power Crystals as joysticks in the Dinozords and the Megazord, but the crystals were not yet introduced until "A Pressing Engagement"
The Putties had human eyes in the US footage but red eyes in the Sentai footage.
Jason: Alright, I'm in!
Zack: Me too!
Trini: You can count on me!
Kimberly: I don't know you guys, I mean the outfits are cool and everything, but my hair gets all tangled inside the helmet. I don't think I can do it.
Trini: Oh no, Kimberly.
Alpha: Kimberly, no!
Alpha: (After Kimberly says she won't be able to be a Power Ranger he starts smoking) System overload! System overload! Ayiyiyi...
Kimberly: Alpha! I was kidding!
Alpha: (Suddenly calm) Oh, humor... what a concept.
Squatt: Rita, wake up! Wake up! We're free!
(Rita rises from the dumpster)
Squatt: Uh-oh! Morning breath! Let me give you a mint!
Finster: Oh, it's good to be free after 10,000 years!
Alpha: Danger! DANGER! It's the BIG one! I know it! We'll all be destroyed!
Zordon: Calm down, Alpha! It's Rita. She's escaped, and she's attacking the planet.
Alpha: Ay-yi-yi! What do we do?!
Zordon: Teleport to us five overbearing and over-emotional humans.
Alpha: No, not that! Not teenagers!
Zordon: That's correct, Alpha.
Alpha: I was afraid of that.
Kimberly: This day is too weird!!
Billy: (On Alpha) A fully sentient, multi-functional automaton!
Zack: We were talking to a giant floating head!
Baboo: Here, your evilness. Let me help you. (helps Rita out of the dumpster) Walk with me. Talk with me...
Rita: (falls slightly, irritated growl) You made me step in a puddle, you nit-wit!
Jason: Back off, fang-face!
Zack: The good guys are here!
Billy: Get off our planet!
Trini: Cause we're the Power Rangers!
Kimberly: And we're not backing down!
An entirely different first-Ranger-Teen scene was produced for this version of the episode, and replaced before broadcast due to the network considering it to be "too violent". It wasn't shown publicly in any medium until the official fan convention, Power Morphicon 2007, where it was screened by series developer, Tony Oliver. As it turns out, part of this scene ended up used in the later episode, "Big Sisters" (the "Bulk gets covered in veggie chili" scene). For the record, it also featured more of Bulk & Skull's unnamed fellow punks.
An alternate shot of the Rangers being teleported from the Youth Center for the first time can be found in the opening credits.
The second scene of the episode involving the five teens, with Billy, Bulk & Skull in Karate class, was actually shot for the "Dark Warrior" episode. Hence why the teens wear the Communicators here they don't actually get until the next episode!
Two long shots from the original Pilot are present in this episode. The first is when the Rangers walk out of the the Command Center, and the second is when the teens are ambushed by the Putty Patrol. If you look closely you can tell that they are wearing different clothes and that Audri Dubois (who played Trini in the pilot) is present.
Goldar is the first evil space alien to make a US footage appearance, in close-up face shots in Rita's lunar palace.
The Command Center is better known as the Brandeis-Bardin Institute, a Jewish college that has also been used in many other shows other than Power Rangers, such as Star Trek: The Next Generation.
The majority of the Yellow Rangers that were female on Power Rangers are male in the Sentai Version (generally, the only ones with skirts were female in both).
First episode of MIGHTY MORPHIN' POWER RANGERS.
