to be added



  • When Kat morps into Ninja her costume is orange in morphing sequence.


  • Catherine Sutherland (Kat) replaces Amy Jo Johnson (Kimberly) in the opening credits from this episode onwards.
  • This is the first time Kat morphs into the Pink Ranger and the Pink Ninja Ranger since receiving her powers from Kimberly.
  • Tommy's karate student, Danny, would appear again in one of the Turbo D.A.R.E. PSA's, displaying an underage smoking habit.
  • Only time the residual link between Rita and Kat is used to help the Rangers.
  • This is the 1st and only episode where the Rangers teleport by Color Order: Red, Yellow, Blue, Pink, Black. Billy stays as Blue while Red, Yellow, Pink and Black are with the original chosen 4.
  • Kat refers to the Tengas as "overgrown emus." This is understandable since she is Australian, but the Tengas are actually normal-sized for emus; and unlike emus, Tengas can fly. It would have been more fitting for her to call them "overgrown kookaburras."
  • This is the only episode where Zordon calls Katherine by her short name "Kat."
