Mighty Morphin Power Rangers was a non-union show that means the Screen Actor Guild did not represent the screen. Therefore the producers didn’t give any fair salary to the actors. As a result, midway through season 2, black and yellow rangers left the show as they were disappointed with the pay.

2. The Black Ranger Had A Missing Finger.
