Okay… I had to talk about this. This episode was the fourth episode of Power Rangers in Space, and it was a crossover with the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles. During this time, Saban Entertainment was producing Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: The Next Mutation, and they decided to have the two shows crossover.
While the story involving the turtles being brainwashed into fighting the rangers isn’t super strong, it’s still a momentous occasion that should be celebrated, given that these are two of the largest children’s television properties that have ever existed, all on one screen. And yes, there was a female ninja turtle, and while her character wasn’t the most well-written, it’s still a cool step in the right direction.
