An Oyster Stew is the sixtieth episode of Mighty Morphin Power Rangers and the last episode of season 1.

Plot

Zack wants to impress Angela for her birthday with a special present. He plans to take her to dinner, and seeks to get her a pair of pearl earrings. Rita Repulsa makes her own plans to have him give Angela the Pearls of Stillness thereby freezing everyone in sight including the Rangers. Only Tommy, and Zack remain unaffected. They must work together to destroy the Oysterizer break the spell is for them.

Synopsis

Angela's birthday is coming up, and Zack wants to take her out. He arranges a nice double date with Tommy & Kim and her at a fancy French restaurant. He seeks a pair of pearls earrings to give to Angela, but is unable to afford any. Zack finds a strange hustler at the park, who gives him a pair real cheap. It turns out, the hustler was a putty in disguise, and the pearls are the evil Pearls Of Stillness!

Angela happily puts them on, and freezes everyone in the restaurant. Zack & Tommy are the only ones unfrozen, and must fight Rita's Oysterizer monster to undo the pearl's effects. The duo do so, but Angela's angered about the disintegrating earrings. The Rangers, in the Megazord & Dragonzord, take on Oysterizer under water! Later, Zack sings Angela a ballad, with Bulk & Skull providing the music.

Cast

Notes

  • Final appearance of the original Putty Patrollers.
  • Final appearance of the original Megazord combo.
  • Final appearance of Angela, who would not be seen or mentioned again in the show.
  • The only episode showing Zack, or for that matter any of the other Rangers besides Jason, donning Tommy's Dragon Shield.
  • A deleted scene from this episode would have shown Zack returning the Dragon Shield to Tommy, with a picture from the scene appearing on merchandise.
  • After the defeat of Commander Crayfish and his Mutant Rangers in the previous episode, Rita lamented, "No more seafood!" Despite this, her very next monster (the Oysterizer) is a sea creature.
  • When they return to help Zack woo Angela at the end of the episode unpaid (Zack states that he is broke), Bulk and Skull perform their first apparently genuine act of kindness for any of the Rangers.
  • Two notable shots were cut from the original Zyu2 footage.
    • Black Ranger was shown scanning for the monster using his helmet, this included a shot from his point-of-view of a 'computerized' (in reality, animated) display
    • The monster was shown worshiping the pearl before going into the initial battle.

Errors

  • After Zack and Tommy morph, Tommy says "I'm right behind you guys", even though only Zack is with him.
  • Zordon told Zack he needed to destroy the Ecocite Pearl to break the freeze spell, however simply knocking Oysterizer into the water did this.
  • In preparing to destroy the Oysterizer, the Megazord performs its "catching the Power Sword" move, despite the fact that it was already holding the Power Sword.
  • In one scene, Zyuranger text is clearly visible on Zack's belt buckle.
