How dedicated is the fanbase? My brother had every line of every episode – including the movie – memorized to a T. He’d then act out the scenes in front of the tv.
It was like watching the Rocky Horror Picture Show in college!
Granted, now that I click the next button I just look silly.
At least he didn’t say what happened, so you still have new information for us.
No, dude, you’re now part of the comic. When Ethan talked about the responses he was getting, I knew exactly what they were like because of your example. In a way, you’re the one who convinced Ethan to get into Power Rangers.
I never got this. I grew up with TF, TMNT, Power Rangers, the Steven Spielberg produced cartoons…and I liked these shows. Ethan has to at least be my age at this point.
How does Ethan not enjoy PR?
Agreed! Power Rangers and Digimon = EPIC!
Digimon was fucking ace! It was way better than Pokemon’s later seasons.
Power Rangers started in the nineties.
Transformers started in the eighties.
Ethan, being an 80s kid, would’ve missed the Power Rangers craze very, very easily.
Hmm, there are plenty of 80′s kids I know that watched Power Rangers and still love it. I being born in ’89 got to watch a good deal of the 80′s and 90′s shows
Second panel, second sentence, me.
“Okay, I love you, bye-bye!”
I remember Power Rangers when it was called Dynaman, had funny dialogue dubbed by the Duck’s Breath Mystery Theatre and ran on USA Up All Night.
“You are Dyna-Pink!”
“No, I hate pink!”
“Too bad, it’s the only color left!”
“Quick! Let’s split up! Cover ALL OF JAPAN!”
It was kind of odd to watch it and realize that, comedy dub aside, the original show really was about (for example) a giant frog running around Japan stealing brides from weddings because he wanted to marry them himself…
As for the version that became huge in the mid-’90s, well, I was 30 at the time and mainly thought of it as “That damn thing that keeps bumping The Tick back another half-hour every week.”
Thank You! I was really starting to feel old there for a bit! I always saw PR as a cheaply made live-action Voltron rip-off with some martial arts thrown in…
…you do realize Voltron is a rip-off of Power Rangers, right? You have it backwards. The source material of Power Rangers is way older than Voltron. Voltron is the rip-off. America just got Voltron first.
THANK YOU! I can’t stand the people that think that Voltron or any other series with a Megazord and 5 people in colored costumes came before Power Rangers.
For those that don’t believe that, the Super Sentai came out about 40 years ago and the first Megazord about 37 years ago. If you don’t believe it, research it.
POWER RANGERS FTW!!!!!!
I’m a Power Rangers fan incase you couldn’t tell.
I loved Power Rangers! And Digimon/Pokemon. Only seasons 1& 2 of Digimon though (after that I hated the casts) and I quit Pokemon when Misty left. I am all up in Pokeshipping (my first ship, awww) and I couldn’t deal with the other ladies.
Tamers was great as well. It’s my second favorite. I didn’t like Frontier for the longest time and it took some time to get used to watching Data Squad. The newest one, Xros Wars was great, however Xros Wars The Boy Hunters Who Leaped through Time was very weak. The only thing that saved it was the return of the old Digidestined.
As a diehard He-Fan, I often wonder why I continue reading your comics, Willis. But I realize that it is only to learn more about you to ascertain your weaknesses for the day we meet…
“That thing that came on before Animaniacs”?
When I was a kid, which I assume was around the same time Ethan was, Animaniacs was just that thing that came on after Power Rangers.
I don’t remember Animaniacs being on Fox Kids, I remember it being on WB64
I was the world’s biggest He-Man fan as a little runt and even I forgive you. I’ll defend the little comic books they packaged with the toys to death, but the show was terrble. Terrbhl. At least Skeletor was hilarious.
Hehehe skeleton nyeh
