    Trivia, Notes, Quotes and Allusions

    FILTER BY TYPE

    • TRIVIA (5)

      • Mr. Kaplan says he's watched all the students grow for the past 4 years, but Rocky, Adam, Kat, and Tanya had been there for less than that.

      • Tommy split the Rangers into two groups to search for the detonator, however it would have been far quicker if they'd searched for it individually.

      • The Rangers now have numbered badges on their Turbo costumes they didn't have in the Movie, and thus, don't have in their morphing sequences!

      • When Tommy placed the bomb onto the R.A.M., the countdown suddenly sped up, but right before it exploded, the countdown returned to normal speed.

      • Kat and Tanya's keys started glowing immediately after they appeared, but when Adam was morphing, his key didn't glow until the moment before he inserted it into his morpher.

    • QUOTES (1)

    • NOTES (6)

      • The fact that Zordon is from Eltar is the only piece of continuity from 'Mighty Morphin Power Rangers: The Movie' to be included in the TV Series.

      • Rocky, Adam, Kat, Tanya, and Tommy are said to be part of the graduating class of 1997.

      • This episode features the final appearance of Rocky (Steve Cardenas). He ends his run on the show more or less how he began: a powerless hanger-on.

      • This marks the first time the "short range locators" from the Turbo Movie are called the Turbo Navigators.

      • This episode features the first appearance of the Turbo R.A.M. (Robotic Arsenal Mobilizer), a small cannon on a cart made up of all five of the Rangers' Turbo Weapons.

      • This episode is the final time (for good, this time around) that Lt. Stone appears as a lieutenant for the Angel Grove Junior Police Patrol. He becomes "caretaker" of the Bulk & Skull Chimps in this episode, but he's pretty much been doing that since he first appeared!

    • ALLUSIONS (1)

      • Divatox: (on the Rangers) They couldn't find pointy ears at a Star Trek convention!

        Divatox is referring to the popular 60's Science Fiction series Star Trek, and their common race the Vulcans, who have pointed ears and prefer logic over emotions. There are other races this could be referring to, such as Romulans (introduced in the Next Generation of the 80's), but Vulcans are more prominent.
