Mighty Morphin Power Rangers | ABS-CBN 90's American Super Hero Kids Show

Mighty Morphin Power Rangers is a US live-action kids television show based on the Japanese Super Sentai series Kyoryu Sentai Zyuranger. Mighty Morphin Power Rangers aired in ABS-CBN (ABS-CBN Corporation) around the 90's (1993-1995). Just like Mighty Morphin Power Rangers' effect on children in the USA, Filipino children also welcomed the U.S. syndicated series of Japan's super sentai series with open arms. The series was something fresh that time and for people outside of Japan, it is only natural to be swept off from their feet by a super hero tv series that has long been entertaining Japanese children for decades.
