The stupid thing about this show was how those animal/robots would come out of nowhere whenever the Power Rangers needed them -- ostensibly to fight the mega-sized overgrown version of the same monster they had just been fighting.

If the Power Rangers had access to these robot/animal thingamajigs all the time, why didn't they use them to begin with?

ahh... thank goodness I went through my childhood whilst the first series Transformers (still my favourite cartoon of all time) were still all the rage.

Yup, MMPR is probably the worst children's TV show I've ever watched as an adult.
