Kyōryū Sentai Zyuranger (恐竜戦隊ジュウレンジャー, Kyōryū Sentai Jūrenjā) is a Japanese tokusatsu television series and the sixteenth installment in the long-running Super Sentai metaseries of superhero programs. Produced by Toei and Bandai, it aired on TV Asahi from February 21, 1992, to February 12, 1993, with a total of 50 episodes. It was the first Sentai series to have a regular Sixth Ranger, and the first to introduce the concept of sentient, living mecha — a theme that has been used frequently in the franchise ever since. It was also the first Sentai series to be adapted into an installment of the American Power Rangers series. Footage from all 50 episodes was extensively used for the first season of Mighty Morphin Power Rangers. The core Zyuranger costumes were used in all three seasons of Mighty Morphin Power Rangers and were used as the original Power Rangers costumes while the Dragon Ranger costume was adapted into the Green Ranger's costume and was used throughout Season 1 and in early Season 2.
Why It Rocks
The Zyurangers are very likable and distinctive with unique personalities.
Geki/TyrannoRanger is the leader of the group with a strong sense of justice.
Goushi/MammothRanger is the calm and cool second-in-command of the group and also the only one to appear transformed in every episode.
Dan/TriceraRanger is the courageous warrior of the group.
Boi/TigerRanger is the most kid-friendly and inquisitive of the group.
Mei/PteraRanger is the most gentle and loving of the group.
Burai/DragonRanger is Geki's brother who started the trend of "Sixth Rangers" in Super Sentai.
The kid-oriented approach is very appropriate for this season.
Witch Bandora is a hilarious villain with a tragic backstory.
Awesome suit designs.
The acting was perfect.
Daizyujin and Dragon Caesar are some of the coolest robots in Super Sentai.
The finale was somewhat decent.
Catchy theme song that became a meme when The Angry Video Game Nerd sang it during a review of old Power Rangers/Super Sentai games.
