Mighty Morphin' Power Rangers

Season 1 generally

Deliberate mistake: In fight scenes, the Yellow Ranger's stature matches that of a male (and not Trini). This is because in the Japanese version of the show, the Yellow Ranger was played by a man.

Deliberate mistake: A few deliberate mistakes here. It was around this time that 3 of the actors on the show (Austin St. John, Walter Jones, and Thuy Trang; who played Jason, Zack, and Trini) walked out over pay issues. So, to work around this until replacement rangers could be found, Saban used old footage of the 3 that walked out. The mistakes are as follows: 1) Tommy is shown to be wearing green. The Rangers wore clothes that matched the colour of their powers - Tommy was now the White Ranger (and should be wearing White clothing), as the Green Ranger powers had been destroyed. 2) Zack's hair changed from dreads, to his flat cut. This had an instant effect on Kimberley and Tommy's hair (again, due to the old footage), which had gotten noticeably longer as the series progressed. 3) Jason, Zack, and Trini's voices were different when they were morphed - obviously, they were voice sound-a-likes.

Answer: Probably to save on costs of filming the same scene. In the reused shots they have always morphed so you can't see the actors. They just have to pay them to do voice-overs rather than the entire scene.
