“Power Rangers” is an American entertainment and merchandising franchise built around a live action superhero television series. Produced first by Saban Entertainment, second by BVS Entertainment, later by SCG Power Rangers and today by Hasbro, the series takes much of its footage from the Japanese tokusatsu “Super Sentai,” produced by Toei Company. The first Power Rangers entry, “Mighty Morphin Power Rangers,” debuted on August 28th, 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. As of 2001, the media franchise has generated over $6 billion in retail sales worldwide.
