“Go, Go Power Rangers!”
Nostalgia is everything…If you were a ’90s kid, then you know all about the Mighty Morphin Power Rangers.
The Mighty Morphin Power Rangers – which spanned three seasons and spawned a feature film – was the first incarnation of a live-action series that centered around teenagers with superpowers and some kick-ass costumes. The show took place in the fictional town of Angel Grove, California, and the rangers had to fight an array of evil, all while having to deal with the angst of being teens.
And today, August 28th, is the 20th anniversary of Haim Saban‘s classic show; a show that was so dope that in 2010, it was resurrected – with a new logo, comic book-referenced graphics, and more visually-appealing special effects – and aired on ABC Kids.
