Re: Tell The Truth
On Yahoo!'s list of the yearly most popular Christmas presents:
1993-1994: Mighty Morphin Power Rangers (Bandai)
Starting at $6, Yahoo! Shopping
The Big Deal: Five racially diverse teenagers with superpowers fought evil aliens for a TV smash, and so came a line of toys featuring the Rangers and their "Zords" — you know, giant robotic dinosaurs they used to combat aforementioned evil aliens. Duh.
The Weird Part: The Power Rangers's catchphrase, "It's Morphin Time!" reportedly outraged authorities in Malaysia, who feared it encouraged children to become morphine addicts.
