Mighty Morphin' Power Rangers

A Friend in Need (3) - S3-E3

Plot hole: Somehow Bulk and Skull know that the Rangers use the phrase "It's Morphin' time" and also reach behind their belts. They're not supposed to know this, unless they know the Rangers' identities (which of course they don't know despite their "efforts").

Master Vile and the Metallic Armor (3) - S3-E30

Plot hole: In this episode Globbor's energy is drained when Alpha stops the Solar Eclipse, and his Energy drains in the sunlight and severed the physical link between him and Ninjor. This is strange because in the previous episode Globbor had no trouble fighting in the sunlight, and the link stayed intact in the sunlight.

Rangers in Reverse - S3-E33

Plot hole: The whole "reverse time" thing is messed up. Master Vile claims that everyone has been changed back to children. So where would the adults we see for the remainder of the series come from? The Rangers are all about 20, and they're turned back into about 10 year lords. Why is Lt. Stone turned back approximately 30 years, into a 10 year old? It can't be that the reversal was different for each person, as Master Vile claims everyone is a child again. Very confusing.

Show generally

Continuity mistake: When the Villains send their cronies (for example, Putties, Tengu Warriors, Cogs, Piranhatrons, etc.), their numbers constantly change from when they arrive, to when they leave. This is due to the use of Japanese footage used from Kyoryu Sentai Zyuranger.

Trivia: Portions of every episode are from a Japanese version of the show. Almost every episode in series 1 was two thirds Japanese footage, just voiced over. Saban used this Japanese footage to save on filming its own.

More trivia for Mighty Morphin' Power Rangers

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.
