Power Rangers is a long-running American entertainment and merchandising franchise built around a live action children’s television series featuring teams of costumed heroes. Produced first by Saban Entertainment, later by BVS Entertainment, and currently by SCG Power Rangers LLC, the series took its initial premise and much of its footage from the Japanese tokusatsu Super Sentai franchise. Its first entry, Mighty Morphin Power Rangers, debuted on August 28, 1993, and helped launch the Fox Kids programming block of the 1990s, during which it catapulted into popular culture along with a line of action figures and other toys by Bandai.

Main article: List of Power Rangers episodes

The first series Mighty Morphin Power Rangers” through In Space followed a story arc with a gradually changing cast and characters over six years.[note 6] Beginning with Lost Galaxy, although it had ties with the previous story arc, each Power Rangers series had its own self-contained storylines, independent of previous series. Crossover episodes between different series featuring rangers, villains, and other other characters from past seasons also began with Lost Galaxy.[note 7]

Mighty Morphin Power Rangers, the longest-running series, aired from 1993 to 1995, spanning three seasons.
