The different varieties of the Power Ranger costume are all still favorites with children for Halloween, birthdays, and more. In fact, since the very first Mighty Morphin Power Rangers episode aired on August 23, 1998 the rangers have never failed. Of course, many people don’t know that the rangers aren’t at all what they appear to be. In actuality, the American show Mighty Morphin Power Rangers, and all the series that follow, were not only based on the Japanese tokusatsu Super Sentai, but actually include some pieces of footage from the Japanese show in the adapted American versions. The original Mighty Morphin Power Rangers and all of the seasons that followed have included huge portions of Sentai footage, which is why Power Rangers is such a unique and long-lasting show.
