This article is about a/an episode in Mighty Morphin Power Rangers.

Follow that Cab! is the one hundred and thirty-fourth episode of Mighty Morphin Power Rangers.

The 12th Zeo Serial Short aired before a later airing of the episode.

Synopsis

Kimberly reads the newspaper and discovers in an article that a world-famous gymnastics coach is coming to Angel Grove to look for a new gymnast to compete in the Pan Global Games. She agrees to at least go see him, and Bulk and Skull tag along as extra security. However, in order to capture Kimberly, Zedd and Rita turn the cab they're driving in into the Crabby Cabbie monster.

Plot

Rita and Zedd come up with a plan to create a monster with a Ranger trapped inside so that their fellow Rangers would not be able to destroy the monster due to the risk of destroying their friend.

Kimberly meets Tommy at the Juice Bar and tells him that a world-renowned trainer is in Angel Grove. After a discussion with Tommy, Kim decides to go and visit him once she had combed her hair and had a drink.

Kimberly's car is stolen and this give Rita and Zedd the window to create the Monster, when Kimberly, with the help of Bulk and Skull borrow a cab to chase the car thief.

Rita and Zedd turn the cab into the Crabbie Cabbie, forcing the Rangers to try and contain the monster rather than destroy it until a way can be found to separate the humans from the monster.

Back at the Command Center, Alpha manages to create a device to extract Kimberly, Bulk and Skull. Once Tommy in the White Shogun Zord sees this, the Rangers form the Shogun Megazord, Tower formation and defeat the monster with the final spin attack strike.

Post-battle Bulk and Skull catch the criminal and return Kimberly's car. Kimberly tells the team she will try and see the visiting trainer when he returns for tryouts.

Notes

  • Kimberly does not appear morphed in this episode.
  • Debut of the White, Black, Yellow, Blue, and Red Shark Cycles which is the first time that Ranger cycles are formally introduced after Season 1's Battle Bikes just appeared with no introduction.
  • Zordon explains that the Shark Cycles were made from a fossilized giant prehistoric shark. Presumably, this was Carcharodon megalodon, which lived at around 15 million B. C. and was about 39 feet in length and 12 tons in weight. However, a shark's skeleton is made mostly of cartilage (the same material that gives shape to a human's nose and ears), not bone, so normally it would not fossilize except for its jaws and teeth. The only way it could have been completely fossilized would be if the shark washed up on dry land and remained there in the sun until its body dried out without being destroyed by scavenging animals or by weather, and then was naturally buried over millions of years and mummified. This has happened with the Cretaceous ornithopod dinosaur Edmontosaurus, mummified specimens of which reveal that its hands were padded for walking rather than webbed for swimming.
  • Introduction of the Shogun Megazord Tower Formation whereby all the Shogunzords form a tower which spins round and destroys its opponent. This would be the first and only time it would be used.
  • The end credits feature all six Rangers morphed and riding their Shark Cycles, probably as a deleted scene from "A Different Shade of Pink".
  • First appearance of Julia Jordan as Young Katherine.
  • Second episode to have the song Ride the Machine, the first being "The Mutiny, Part I".

Errors

  • Ernie refers to P.C. as "he".
  • Upon teleporting to the Command Center, the Rangers are suddenly morphed but helmetless for no established reason (this implies there was an initial battle between the Rangers and Crabby Cabbie which was cut from the final episode).
