Episode Summary

EDIT
A charity clean-up drive the Ranger Teens are participating in gets targeted by Divatox. The Shrinkasect monster flies into Blue Senturion's head and bugs him to the point he goes on a rampage! This keeps the Rangers busy while a detonator in a soda can is planted, where it's picked up by the Bulk & Skull Chimps, out to collect the most trash in order to gain enough attention to get turned back to humans.moreless

    Trivia, Notes, Quotes and Allusions

    FILTER BY TYPE

    • TRIVIA (3)

      • When Bulk and Skull pick up the can with detonator from the outside of the Juice Bar, in the next shot the can is on the floor again.

      • When Bulk and Skull leave the Youth Center, the door opens and stays open without Bulk and Skull pushing. However, everyone else opens the door manually, meaning it's not an automatic door.

      • When Bulk and Skull leave the Youth Center, the door closes in the background, but when it cuts to Shrinkasect, the door closes again.

    • QUOTES (6)

      • (during one of the bloopers)
        Tommy: I don't know where the bug is.
        Blue Senturion: Uh, anybody seen my stunt double? (Tommy squashes him with his foot, and Adam begins to cry)

      • Alpha 6: Yo, Rangers, the Blue Senturion's actin' crazier than a New York cab driver during rush hour traffic!

      • Bulk Chimp: Hey, Skull, you up for a quick drive?
        Skull Chimp: Aw, gee, Bulkie, are you sure about this? I mean, you're not the man you used to be.
        Bulk Chimp: Come on! Are you a man or a monkey?
        Skull Chimp: The vote's still not in on that.

      • Shrinkasect: Let's play "Shrink To Fit"! (To the Blue Senturion) You're up first, Blue!

      • Elgar: Kinda tough when ya can't whip out the old Morpher, huh?
        Adam: Like I need help to take care of you, Elgar!

      • Blue Senturion: Malicious littering; Its an ugly thing!

    • NOTES (4)

      • Angel Grove's Mayor Carrington, once again played here by the same uncredited white-haired lady as in MMPR's "Doomsday", "Another Brick in the Wall" and MMAR's "Climb Every Fountain", makes her final appearance in this episode.

      • During the script phase, an entirely different episode, titled "Rangers in Concert" (written by Colleen White), featuring a Rockin Roach monster, was slotted in this episode's place. It would have introduced Michael, an intern at KAGV (who, like the eventual TJ, was African-American), and focused much on Carlos (who then had the last name of Chavez), Ashley (who was then named Missy), and Jenny Hunter (who was then named Ashley). At the end of the episode, Blue Senturion would be fixed, and the full Millennium Message would play for the current Rangers, revealing Michael, Ashley, Missy, and Carlos were to be the next Rangers and the ones who save the world from the united villains. Despite the ditching of this script, "Passing the Torch (2)" will seemingly work on the assumption the Rangers did in fact see the full message.

      • An unfilmed trilogy from late season 2 had the similar title of "Zordon, I Shrunk The Rangers", but the stories were nothing alike.

      • This episode was the second PR Summer cliffhanger, as this was treated as the 4th season finale by Fox Kids.

    • ALLUSIONS (2)

      • At the end of the episode Elgar starts to step on the shrunken Rangers and says, "It's time for a really big shoe!" This is a line made famous by Ed Sullivan, who said "It's time for a really big shoe" but pronounced the word 'show' as 'shoe' when introducing acts on his classic "The Ed Sullivan Show."

      • Title: Honey, I Shrunk the Rangers
        The title is a reference to the 1989 film, Honey, I Shrunk The Kids.
