Mighty Morphin Power Rangers and the subsequent Power Rangers series use recut footage from the Japanese Super Sentai franchise. Mighty Morphin Power Rangers primarily used footage from Kyōryū Sentai Zyuranger, and the currently running series, Power Rangers Super Megaforce, uses footage from Tensō Sentai Goseiger and Kaizoku Sentai Gokaiger.
