The Nitpickers Guide for Mighty Morphin Power Rangers : Season Three
The format for each entry is: place the error occurred, time in episode
the error occurred : what the actual error is. A couple of nitpicks
are in a different format to this, but everything should be understandable.
The terms beginning, middle, end refers to the placing in the episode,
roughly equating to: before the monster arrives, while the monster is around,
and after the monster is destroyed respectively.
Ninja Quest Part 1
2nd and 3rd beach volley ball scene, beginning : The shadows keep
changing length and direction. One example : in the sand, the shadows go
to the right (facing the water), but on the grass, the shadows go to the
left (facing the water).
Moon, when Rito comes out of the crater : As he stretches his neck,
there's a slight flash of the white fabric that is joined to the headpiece
of the costume.
Outdoor cafe, when the two girls are discussing 'Men in uniform'
: In the shots of Bulk and Skull, the two girls can be seen sitting directly
behind them there is space between the two girls. In the close ups of the
girls though, they have become very close together.
Outdoor cafe, when Skull knocks the drink over Bulk : A lot of the
pink mixture fell on the table and the red glass. Skull put the dirty glass
back on the table, but shots from behind Bulk's shoulder had both the table
and glass completely clean.
Outdoor cafe, when Bulk says "Skull and I are going..." : Bulk's
shirt is considerably drier than it was 2 seconds earlier.
Park, middle : When the rangers first pull out their morphers, they're
in a straight line, but as they hold the morpher straight out (the last
shot), they are in a triangle formation.
Angel Grove, as rangers watch the Zords explode : There are shots
of Billy and Adam using their arms to shield themselves from the explosion,
but at that time they were supposedly using both hands to hold Kim back,
like they were doing in the final shot.

outside the academy to much being shorter when inside the compound.

seen going into the entrance with the others

shots of Bulk and Skull's backs, the piles are back up again.

Tengas have very short shadows, but during the fight, the shadows are very
long, once again defying the laws of nature.
Ninja Quest Part 4
Zord fight, in red background land : Ninjor has his sword in his
hand when he's on the ground, but it's sheathed by the time he's on his

was standing behind her.

Park, after Kimberly finds her communicator : She teleports with
the communicator straps dangling, but she arrives at the Command Center
with the communicator securely fastened.
Youth Center, end : When the Harts and Campbells are talking, Steve
(or whatever the painter was called) has his arm around Mrs Hart, but his
hand position keeps changing depending on the shot, with his hand sometimes
on her shoulder, sometimes on her arm and sometimes on her back.

Wizard For A Day
Youth Center, beginning : The books Rocky dropped on the floor as

Park, monster battle : Rocky says "We need to cover our faces,"
but you would've thought that's what the helmets were there for.
Fourth Down And Long
Football field, after Aisha is turned into a football : As the monster
says "At half time..." the Tengas are advancing on Rocky and the balls
are on the ground behind them, but a matter of seconds later, when the
Centiback says "Ranger, you season is over..." the Tengas have the balls
in their hands.

ball was put on the ground, it tilted to the side, but just as it was kicked,

strands of hair are in front of her right shoulder.

: The rangers are seen laughing and Kimberly is leaning on the table, but
when the rangers are seen from behind, at supposedly the same moment, Kim
is sitting back in her chair.
Youth Center, end : When there is the close up of the rangers piling
their hands together, Rocky's hand isn't seen going into the pile, but

were short when Tommy started the car, but long when he was seen taking

keeps changing position.

in an incredibly short period of time.
Australia, beginning : Some of the kids in Kat's flashback were
also at the Christmas celebrations in Angel Grove ("I'm Dreaming of a White

be morphed when they were first seen at the Command Center (besides the
fact that the ranger costumes went better with the Shark Cycles than the
civilian clothes would have).

were standing in front of the Shark Cycles, but when they made the final
arm movements, they were standing next to the bikes.

Ernie's there was not one speck of dust on them, even though they'd been
shifting plants and bricks and dust all day.
Building site, end : As the Mayor is seen walking towards the teens,
Tommy is positioned directly behind Kat, but in the close up he is standing
next to her. Plus, in the walk up shot, Aisha is on Billy's left, but in

was half a second earlier).

switching between holding his glass in his left hand, holding it in his
right hand and holding it with both hands.

Master Vile And The Metallic Armor Part 2

Carnival, End : All the other kids ran away before the young rangers
try to morph. However, when Zedd, Rita, Goldar and Rito had grown and were
attacking, the kids had come back to the carnival, and the whole running/screaming
en mass thing was done again.
