When villainous Rita Repulsa is freed from her dumpster prison on the Moon, she threatens to take over the Earth! Wise sage Zordon recruits five teenagers to stop her by becoming Power Rangers: Jason, Zack, Kimberly, Billy, and Trini. Each has a Zord assault vehicle and the powers to stop the monsters that threaten Angel Grove. They must face a foe in their midst when Rita gives the Dragon Coin to Angel Grove High student Tommy, who becomes the evil Green Ranger.

Allies and Other CharactersEdit
- Episode 40, Doomsday, Part II, was supposed to be the final episode, and would've ended with the Rangers at Prom and Rita defeated. Because the show was popular, the ending was changed and the rangers were made freshmen instead of seniors, with Rita escaping.
- After episode 43, Saban was out of Zyuranger footage, so it commissioned more from Toei. This footage is known in the fandom as Zyu2.
- In early scripts, Tommy was called Rocky. That name was reused when the red ranger needed replacing in season 2.
