They turned the Rangers into sissies to sell the ninja costumed figures.
The second gen putties we're more dangerous then the first. But the Z was there big weakness. Since the Rangers only had to hit the Z to destory them.

I remember the Zeo Rangers having to morph to fight the cogs. Turbo is where they went back to unmorphed fighting.

The Ninja Costumes weren't just there to sell product. I think it was part of a plan to dumb down the fights and make them less violent. Since that was an issue at the time.

I always wanted to see the Putties and Tengas used in the same season, like they beat the putties from finster, now send down the super putties, now send down zedds putties, now send down the tengas, now send down the monster, or send down the tengas with putties, maybe if Zedd and Rita really stayed on for Turbo we would have got them mixed.

precisely although somehow they ended up using more or less the same Tenga creatures.

not to mention while the movie is in fact canon it's not in continuity with the show due to numerous issues. Zordon was never in the tube in the base in the show, the Rangers having different suits, Tommy calling for Saba instead of Saba being holstered, no Finster and of course no Squatt or Baboo.

exactly. Z-Putties had a weakness but were more powerful than the original Putties while the Tengas were more powerful than the Putties and Z-Putties.

exactly. The Ninja Ranger powers were there to lessen not only the violence but also the workload for the hero actors.

same here but the Putty suits probably didn't last very long.
