Power Ranger History

Developed as a superhero television show to appeal to young boys, the series gained momentum over the years by adapting the characters and storylines to prevent the franchise from getting stale. Of course, a new theme and title every year made it necessary to develop new Power Ranger toys as well.

Show History

The show was based on a Japanese superhero series and was adapted to American audiences by casting English-speaking actors and using the original Japanese footage for the costumed characters. Beginning with Mighty Morphin Power Rangers, which aired on Fox for three seasons (beginning in 1993), and continuing through to the upcoming 2019 Beast Morphers series, the Ranger franchise has experienced great success. Many seasons of the different Power Rangers series are available on Netflix. New episodes can be watched on Nickelodeon.

Toy Manufacturer History

For the first 25 years Bandai was the primary manufacturer of Power Rangers Toys. Starting in 2019, Hasbro takes over that contract as the exclusive maker of Power Rangers toys. Hasbro and Fisher Price are both owned by Mattel, so Fisher Price also has some licensed Power Rangers toys.
