power-rangers-zeo-episode-29-a-season-to-remember

The episode starts with an old man telling his grandson a story about the Rangers during the holidays. He sadly did not tell of the time the Rangers actually met Santa. The Rangers and Raymond (a recurring character during Zeo) are throwing a party at the Juice Bar promoting different holiday traditions. They are celebrating Christmas, Hanukkah, Kwanzaa, and probably others. Power Rangers once again does a good job of showing off all the holidays. The Machine Empire led by King Mondo are the big bads this season. Of course they don’t understand Christmas since they are robots and stuff. Mondo sends Prince Sprocket to mess with the Rangers’ minds. Sprocket makes them not respect other religions leading them to argue. It’s a bit comical listening to Tommy tell Raymond to go pick a Christmas tree instead of worrying about his Jewish stuff. Tanya is pretty hilarious too being really angry that nobody is respecting Kwanzaa. Mondo also makes all their holiday items disappear making everyone want to cancel the party. Mondo’s plan is working until a little girl convinces the Rangers through a bad song that diversity and having friends is good. Mondo’s plan is foiled.I liked the different holidays aspect. It’s good to see Power Rangers go above and beyond just focusing on Christmas. I liked that old school holiday special feel of an old man telling his grandson the story. It’s sweet. We find out in the end that Tommy is the old man and that he’s married to Kat. They make a cute old couple.

Tommy Forces Indentured Servant to Make Tree Look NiceIt’s Christmas time in Angel Grove and, in the Angel Grove Juice Bar, everyone inside is in the spirit. Rangers Adam, Billy, Rocky and Tommy watch the goings-on as Kimberly and Aisha hold a minor pageant within, leading children in singing “We Wish You a Merry Christmas”. As the pageant ends, the girls rejoin the guys as bar owner Ernie approaches Tommy and offers him to put up the star and finish up the Christmas Tree. However, Tommy spots a despondent little girl and lets her put up the star in his place. Aisha talks to Kimberly, who tells her that this was the first Christmas she was going to spend without her mom (an earlier plot had Kimberly decide to stay with Aisha when her mom moved to Europe). Aisha reassures her and gets her to join in with the decorating as bullies-turned-junior police officers Bulk and Skull enter, lamenting in the duties as Santa and an elf respectively. When Kimberly attempts to put up some mistletoe, Tommy arrives to help her, only for Bulk and Skull to barrel through and Skull steal a kiss from Kimberly, much to her displeasure. However, not all is happy. In his base on the Moon, the villainous Lord Zedd shows his displeasure over the holidays and vows things will be different.ZeddPutOnHisJeansRita Repulsa demands to know how he’ll do that, noting he says that every year. However, Zedd corrects her, pointing out how could she know since they’ve only been married a year; he produces a special top that would hypnotize the children of the world into doing his bidding – basically, by taking control of children, Zedd rules the future of Earth. Rito Revolto comments that Zedd’s idea is pretty good, while being entranced by the spinning top. Zedd gives Rito the top and tells him to get to the North Pole and force the elves to make more of the toys, while taking Santa hostage. Deciding to make a pun-related gloat, Zedd says “Santa won’t have to check his list twice, because all the children of the world will have been naughty, and won’t that be nice for me.”In the Juice Bar, Aisha and Kimberly practices another song, “Menorah, Menorah”, with the kids as Aisha notices the kid from earlier. Aisha’s curious as to what’s going on though Kimberly is just as clueless.Alpha's Suit Actress in a Cameo RoleWhen the song ends and the kids leave, the two confront the girl over her half-hearted performance, but she brushes them off saying that it wasn’t worth it as she wouldn’t have to sing for. In the North Pole, Santa enters his workshop to check on his elves and their work. The head elf shows worry over not meeting their deadline, but Santa reassures her. However, Rito appears, flanked by Tengu Warriors, and declares that he’s taking over and wants the elves to make the tops. Rito introduces himself, with Santa commenting that he’s been very bad; Rito takes it as a compliment. Santa and the head elf stand up to them, but Rito’s numbers easily overpower them. In the Juice Bar, Kimberly confronts the child and finds out that her dad can’t come to the pageant because he’s stuck at work. Kimberly reassures the girl and cheers her up before bringing her in. She catches Tommy under the mistletoe once again and they try for another kiss only to be interrupted by their communicators – Zordon needs the Rangers.Arriving in the Command Center, Zordon lets the teens in on Rito’s takeover, confusing the teens over why Zedd would do this. Learning of the toys, the team agrees that they have to stop them; however, Zordon warns them that, because of various factors like a cross-current of holiday magic and the North Pole’s unique polarity, their powers will not work on the North Pole. They realize that and take the chance anyway. Upon arriving, the Rangers make it to the workshop to see Santa tied up and Rito and the Tengu pushing the elves into working. As the team thinks up of a plan, Zedd spots the teens and sends Goldar to assist Rito and to get rid of the Rangers. In the Juice Bar, the little girl confronts Bulk and Skull in trying to find Kimberly; both are shocked to her Kimberly isn’t around, since she never bails on helping others. Skull reminds Bulk it’s time to slip into their costumes; Bulk says they’ll go outside and let Santa know about Kimberly’s disappearance.maxresdefaultIn Santa’s workshop, the Rangers huddle and come up with a plan, which begins with Aisha and Kimberly getting the head elf’s attention and letting them in on their plan. The two, then, get Rito’s attention and lure him outside while the head elf rallies the other elves. Outside, the Rangers make their presence known and Rito realizes that his powers don’t work either, which greatly upsets him. When Goldar finally arrives, the Rangers attack by launching snowballs at the two villains, forcing them to retreat inside the workshop, where they’re tripped up and taken out. The Tengas try to aid them, only to be tripped up by marbles. The villains defeated, they’re tied up in ribbon and teleported back to Zedd and Rita. The head elf realizes that the takeover has put them behind schedule and Billy offers the Rangers to aid the elves in getting them back on track by wrapping up the rest of the presents and loading them into Santa’s sleigh, which they accept. The teens are able to finish everything and, for their help, are given a sack of presents to give to others at the Juice Bar. In Zedd’s base, Zedd and Rita are happy to receive at least one gift this year. To Rita’s anger, the box is full of their hypnotic spinning tops – “What a gyp!” Wearing a Santa hat, Rito sheepishly give Goldar a new sword as a Christmas gift. Taken aback by Rito’s gesture, Goldar can only thank him gladly. Rita and Zedd, however, are left disgusted. Looking out to earth, Zedd declares that he hates Christmas with a “bah humbug!”, the quote echoed by Rita.At the Juice Bar, Bulk and Skull have donned their costumes and are tending to the kids to hear their wishes, finding themselves dumbstruck over one kid’s massive list. The Rangers return with the gifts and Kimberly gives the girl a special gift – her father, who apologizes for missing out and promises her that he would stay with her. The girl approaches Bulk and asks what she’d want for Christmas, only for her to say she already has her gift thanks to him, leaving the two feeling warm inside (and Skull breaking down into tears). Kimberly and Tommy finally get their kiss under the mistletoe and she is reunited with her mom for the holidays. After one last song, “Silent Night”, everyone gathers around the stage and let out a “Merry Christmas”.

One of my all time favorite Christmas specials, it’s got a great story to it and its loads of fun to watch every year around Christmas.

what-happened-to-the-cast-of-mighty-morphin-power-rangers-876016It’s a dark and stormy night at Angel Grove High School, and Adam is staying late to study while Tanya is asleep and Bulk and Skull are on night patrol. When Tanya gets up to leave, Bulk and Skull warn her that it’s a full moon tonight and that unusual things can happen under it, but Tanya just laughs and agrees to walk them home. As he studies, Adam is distracted by the television as it begins playing a favorite old monster movie of his, The Bride of Hackensack, and he ends up falling asleep on the sofa.vlcsnap-4951117Later, Adam is rudely woken up when a black cat runs into the room. Adam chases it, only to run into Rita Repulsa and Lord Zedd as they stand in the darkened hallway of the high school. They tell him that while he slept, the Machine Empire took over the planet and brainwashed his friends. Adam’s only hope is to follow the cat as it leads him to a powerful sorcerer, and he must also collect the cape of a vampire, the hair of a werewolf, the wrappings of a mummy, and the eye of a cat in order to earn the sorcerer’s trust and turn back the Machines. As Adam steps through a door, he finds himself in a black-and-white world and meets a vampire named Tomacula as a familiar-looking bartender serves drinks to him and his friends… except Tomacula wants something a little more fresh from Adam’s veins. King Mondo suddenly appears to taunt Adam and send down Cogs, and Adam grabs Tomacula’s cape while he’s distracted.Vulgar-2000-movie-Bryan-Johnson-3A voice suddenly calls out as a rope appears. Adam climbs it and appears in a forest where he meets Lord Henry. He and the villagers are on watch for a werewolf in the area, but Adam finds out that Henry himself is the werewolf. When Henry falls into the bushes, Adam grabs some of his caught hair and flees. After meeting with the local Burgermeister, Adam is directed to a nearby cave where a professor is researching the tomb of Prince Bulkenhotep. The mummified prince wakes up and chases them until Adam helps him unwind by pulling his wrappings off. Adam leaves the cave and arrives inside a strange laboratory, where Dr. William von Hackensack and his assistant Eye-Gor are at work creating a zombie bride. Suddenly, the cat reappears and transforms into Valencia, queen of the witches. She demands that Adam submits to her power, but he takes her cat’s-eye pendant and she melts away.hqdefaultThe four items gathered, Adam finally reaches the wizard Zordonicus, who forces him to choose one of his friends to fight the evil Drill Master. When Adam asks himself what Tommy would do in his situation, Zordonicus accepts it as Adam’s answer and sends Tommy into the battle. Tommy struggles against Drill Master, but he ultimately triumphs over the monster. Adam demands that Zordonicus revert the world to normal, but the sorcerer reveals himself to be King Mondo and sends monsters to destroy him. Adam is suddenly jostled awake by Tommy, Kat, Tanya, and Rocky. As it turns out, Adam had slept through the whole night and suffered through one big nightmare. While Bulk and Skull pass through chasing what looks like the cat from his dream, Adam sees a TV commercial for an encore showing of The Bride of Hackensack. The other Rangers plan to watch it later, but Adam decides to pass on the offer as he’s had enough of scary movies.bxhNrwGiTlvy2rmH7S3zpGO9N8OAn excellent episode one of the best Halloween specials and indeed one of the best episodes ever.

As the teens enjoy Halloween with some of their young friends, Lord Zedd instructs the putties to crash the annual Youth Center Halloween Party by disguising themselves as kids. Then, as Tommy takes the disguised putties trick-or-treating, Goldar kidnaps him to a secret location to battle the most vicious Halloween monsters.power-rangers-zedd-monster-mash-1041339
A Simple Halloween episode but a fun one, Tommy vs Monsters of the past, also the first mention of the peace conference, so it makes the episode important.

vlcsnap-4951117Kimberly boasts to Trini and Tommy that she is going to be competing on Trick or Treat, the most popular game show in the country, and possibly win a new car. Unfortunately, her opponent just happens to be Skull, whom Bulk claims is going to be unbeatable. Up in the Moon Palace, Rita Repulsa has received word that her new monster Pumpkin Rapper has been planted and is ready to grow. As Trick or Treat begins, the host explains the rules. Each contestant asks him a trick question, and stumping him earns a Pumpkin Point. The one with the most points at the end wins. While the other Rangers are cheering for Kimberly, Tommy (who couldn’t go to the show due to having previously signed up for a karate tournament) stumbles onto a pumpkin patch full of rotten pumpkins in the park. Rita panics and has Putties sent down to deter Tommy from finding her monster, but he fights them off and informs Zordon of the attack before heading for the tournament.
pumpkinrappermmpr03Kimberly quickly takes an impressive lead on Pumpkin Points, while Bulk helps Skull cheat by giving him hints from the audience. Just when she is one point away from winning, however, the other Rangers gesture to Kimberly that Zordon is calling and she is forced to fake a fainting spell in order to be taken off the set, making Skull the winner by default. Once they arrive at the Command Center, Zordon fills them in on the situation. After morphing, the Rangers arrive in the park and investigate the pumpkins. They suddenly latch onto their heads in an attempt to suffocate the Rangers, but Kimberly avoids getting caught and uses her Blade Blaster to free them.hqdefaultThe pumpkins suddenly rise up and turn into pumpkin-headed Putties, and Pumpkin Rapper awakens to challenge the Rangers with both his electrified vines and his horrible rap-lyrics. Zordon is forced to summon Tommy into battle, costing him his spot in the tournament but saving the Rangers in time. With Tommy holding him down, the Rangers squash Pumpkin Rapper with the Power Blaster. Kimberly and Tommy shrug over being forced to lose their respective contests, but console themselves in knowing that they’re both winners. Bulk and Skull soon arrive to show off their new car, but their ride comes to an end when a representative of Network Standards and Practices declares Skull’s win as forfeit due to his and Bulk’s cheating and takes back the car.vlcsnap-2014-11-06-18h59m06s99The second Halloween episode is one of my all favorites, making a Kimberly episode was just brilliant and I really liked the Pumpkin Rapper monster. The game show part was funny too.

Bulk and Skull end up having to help, Zack goes after Angela again, and Tommy helps Kimberly paint. Bulk and Skull’s antics once again end with Bulk getting hit with a bucket of paint. Rita Repulsa goes ahead with her plan to mine Super Putty, but needs to distract the Rangers. Finster creates a Frankenstein Monster. It’s sent to Angel Grove.Vulgar-2000-movie-Bryan-Johnson-3The five main Rangers convene at Billy’s house, all wearing costumes. Tommy is still finishing his costume and plans on catching up with them. Bulk and Skull try on costumes in hope of finding ones that will win the the big prize at the party, but just end up going in their usual punk outfits. Alpha shows up at the party because he wanted to party and hang out with the Rangers, and this costume bash would be the perfect opportunity (Alpha is soon surrounded by fawning girls, to Zack’s consternation). Frankenstein Monster crashes as well, but no one seems to notice, not even Alpha and his new fan club.vlcsnap-2014-11-06-18h59m06s99Finster heads the mining of the Super Putty at some cave. Frankenstein Monster gets violent after its foiled attempt to catch the Rangers. It chases Bulk and Skull outside of the Youth Center. Billy follows the monster to the cave. He morphs and battles the beast with little success. He regroups with the others at the costume party as Rita erupts from the surface of Angel Grove on top of a giant ball of Super Putty. At the Command Center, Zordon fills the five in on Rita’s plans. Tommy is ambushed by Putties outside the Youth Center. The other five morph and go to confront Frankenstein Monster.

Tommy runs off to change into his costume. Kim tells Alpha that he is a hit at the party, calling him by name in front of his new fawning fan club.

Ernie declares the winner of the costume contest to be… Alpha! Bulk tells Skull to grab a can opener, as he wants to learn what Alpha really is. Alpha states that his identity is one mystery that will have to remain unsolved, and he walks off with his newfound fan club.vlcsnap-4951117An excellent first attempt for an Halloween episode, choosing Frankenstein as the monster was brilliant.

The Second Power Rangers unlike the first actually does fir into the series, set Before Power Rangers Turbo. Though the movie has had mixed reviews I personally enjoyed it. On the distant planet Liaria, a wizard named Lerigot is fleeing for his life from unseen enemy forces. In desperation, he uses a magical key in his possession to teleport away from them.  In the city of Angel Grove, Power Rangers Tommy Oliver, Adam Park, and Rocky DeSantos are training for an upcoming martial arts charity tournament, but Rocky’s lack of focus while training causes him to fail a jumping kick and land on his spine, critically injuring him. Elsewhere in the city, their fellow Rangers Katherine Hillard and Tanya Sloan are on a school bus helping the children of the Little Angel’s Haven orphanage. Among the kids is a young boy named Justin Stewart, who is stuck in the orphanage due to his father always working and never being around. Kat tries to cheer him up, but Justin shrugs her off.eb41510440d497aff7286336ca6da338--power-rangers-turbo-power-rangers-movieBack on Liaria, the alien pirate Divatox admonishes her soldiers for failing to capture Lerigot and orders her subordinates Rygog and Elgar to find him immediately. They trace the wizard’s path to Earth, and Divatox deduces that he is seeking refuge with Zordon. Their Subcraft immediately lifts off from Liaria and flies towards Earth. At the hospital, Justin comes in to visit Rocky but hides under his bed as the other Rangers come in to pay their sympathy to him. Their communicators suddenly go off as Zordon summons them to the Power Chamber, unaware that Justin has overheard them. Inside the Power Chamber, Zordon and Alpha 5 explain that Lerigot is being pursued by Divatox as part of her plan to awaken and marry the fire demon Maligore, who sleeps on the island of Muranthias. In his panic, Lerigot has landed in the African wilderness and is now at risk of dying from heatstroke. Tommy and Kat agree to locate the wizard and bring him to safety. As they arrive on Earth, Divatox has Elgar capture two humans “of purity and strength” to be used as sacrifices for Maligore. Elgar brings her Bulk and Skull, security guards working under Jerome Stone who had gotten lost on their way to the International Dance-a-Thon when they were captured. Disgusted at his poor choice of sacrifices, Divatox orders Elgar to try again and throws the pair in the Subcraft’s hold.


After a long and dangerous search through Africa, Tommy and Kat find a passed-out Lerigot and revive him with supplies from their Power Boxes, then take him to the Power Chamber to recover. They are soon contacted by Divatox, who demands that Lerigot be surrendered to her immediately. To emphasize, she reveals that she has captured Lerigot’s wife and child, Yara and Bethel, as well as former Power Rangers Jason Lee Scott and Kimberly Ann Hart (both captured while they were scuba-diving), and that she will kill them all if the wizard does not surrender.


On the beach, the Rangers are unable to stop Lerigot as he willingly surrenders to Divatox, and her forces throw back what appear to be Jason and Kimberly into the water as they take him away. The Rangers quickly discover them to be nothing but their empty scuba-suits. Back in the Subcraft, Jason and Kimberly are put in the hold next to Bulk and Skull as they await their fate as Maligore’s sacrifices.  Zordon explains that Lerigot’s magical key is required to ensure safe passage through the Nemesis Triangle, which prevents all ships from reaching Muranthias. A vessel known as the Ghost Galleon can pass through the Triangle, but the Rangers’ current powers will not suffice for this journey. Instead, Zordon creates a new form of power to protect them — the Turbo Keys and Turbozords. Now the Turbo Rangers, Tommy, Kat, Tanya, and Adam quickly adjust to their new Turbozords, the Red Lightning, Wind Chaser, Dune Star, and Desert Thunder, though Rocky’s Mountain Blaster must stay behind due to his injuries. The Rangers arrive at the rendezvous point where the Ghost Galleon awaits its passengers. Before the Rangers board, the Mountain Blaster arrives with its driver… Justin. He explains that he had followed the Rangers to the Power Chamber and was given Zordon’s blessing to become the Blue Turbo Ranger. Now five-strong, the Rangers load the Turbozords onto the Galleon and begin their journey,  Though the Rangers’ Turbo Keys renders the Galleon invisible to Divatox’s Subcraft, Divatox spots them through the periscope and deploys Putra Pods to climb aboard the Galleon and destroy them, though they are fought off. Down in the holds, Jason and Kimberly attempt to escape by pulling apart a bulkhead, a dangerous plan that very nearly drowns them. While Kimberly escapes with Bulk and Skull, Jason snags his shirt and is unable to follow before Divatox seals the bulkhead with the emergency hatch and leaves him trapped. She is displeased that Maligore is going to have to deal with one sacrifice.


After forcing Lerigot to have her Subcraft pass through the Nemesis Triangle, Divatox is shocked to see the Rangers still tailing her, and a call for advice from Rita Repulsa proves useless. The Subcraft fires torpedoes at the Galleon to destroy it, but the Rangers escape to their Turbozords and drive on the ocean surface to reach Muranthias. Kimberly is also found by the Malichians, though Bulk and Skull are left to fend for themselves. Upon making landfall, Divatox convinces the native Malichians (who have Kimberly in their possession) to lead her to Maligore’s temple where they worship him.  Morphing with their Turbo Keys for the first time, the Turbo Rangers give chase to the temple, where Divatox is preparing to throw Jason and Kimberly to the Pit of Eternal Flame and awaken Maligore with a pre-nuptial snack. She sends her Piranhatrons to delay the Rangers as the sacrifices are made and Jason and Kimberly are reincarnated as Maligore’s evil minions.

Turbo A Power Rangers Movie RangersThe Rangers are barely able to keep their own friends from killing them, but Lerigot and Yara use their combined power to restore the pair to normal, allowing the Rangers to draw their Turbo Weapons and focus on the Pirahnatrons. Divatox throws Elgar to the Pit as a new sacrifice, awakening Maligore as he begins throwing the Rangers around effortlessly.3237330e901780d08b3fc4168e9a8a35When Maligore grows in size, the Rangers summon their Turbozords to unite into the Turbo Megazord. After a fierce fight, Maligore is destroyed by the Turbo Megazord, and Divatox flees for her life while swearing revenge on the Power Rangers as the volcano erupts. After recovering Bulk and Skull, the Rangers return to Angel Grove in time for the martial arts tournament. Tommy ultimately wins the tournament, winning a sizable charity donation to the Little Angel’s Haven as well. The Rangers later return to the Power Chamber to see Lerigot and his family off as they go home to Liaria.Turbo A Power Rangers Movie MaligoreAn excellent entry into the power rangers franchise and served as a gateway to Power Rangers Turbo
