List Rules Vote up the Power Rangers facts you were most surprised to learn.
Growing up, many considered the Power Rangers the most epic group of crime fighters ever. To young minds, they were a group of remarkable heroes who gallantly handed out one world-saving whoopin' after another to evildoers. You watched the episodes so many times, you could answer trivia questions about each villain's backstory and each ranger’s personal life, but what about the stuff that slipped through the cracks of your awe? Watching as an adult, you realize there's a whole lot of stuff you didn’t notice -- stuff that’s often cringe-worthy and embarrassing. These are Mighty Morphin' Power Rangers facts and weird things that you may not have noticed when you were glued to the TV screen as a kid.
The actor who played Zordon, David Fielding, said that they only recorded his face for a couple of hours, and he was done with his on screen time. The only thing he'd do from that point on is voice acting.
In an interview with David Yost, who played Billy the Blue Ranger, Yost said he left the show after he was verbally abused by cast and crew who weren't particularly accepting of his homosexuality. He claimed the harassment extended from everyone: from the creators and producers, to the writers and directors. It's a disturbing revelation that we'd never have known as kids.
Years before he starred in one of the most beloved shows of all time, Breaking Bad actor Bryan Cranston did voice acting for Might Morphin’ Power Rangers. There were two separate occasions – once to play a villain named Snizzard, the other to play another villain, named Twin Man. Bonus fact: some say that the Blue Ranger, Billy Cranston, is named after Bryan.
