Power Rangers VHS Releases #1 (Mighty Morphin)

I decided to make a catalog of various VHS and DVDs. It was hard to find pictures of everything. But I tried. Some images and info are from http://powerrangersmediainfo.blogspot.com/ and http://scratchpad.wikia.com/wiki/The_Classic_Year_of_MMPR_into_as...Power_Rangers_20_for_Kongs_%282013%29

Day of the Dumpster
Two versions were released, the first in 1993 and the second in 1994 with new boxart and new promos and an interview with Jason from the D.A.R.E. event they had. The second version was also released in Spanish in the United States called "El Inicio" (The beginning). It just had one episode: "Day of the Dumpster." Both had the Red Ranger on the cover.


Happy Birthday, Zack
Two versions were released, both had the Black Ranger on the cover. It was the episode "Happy Birthday, Zack." The second version had special feature like an interview with Zack from from the D.A.R.E. event they had.

Food Fight
Both had "Food Fight" which really didn't feature Billy but nevertheless he was on the cover. In the second version, it had Billy Interview from D.A.R.E. Ironically, on the back of one of the tapes of the first versions, it had Billy as the Green Ranger, this before we knew of the existence of Tommy.


High Five
Two versions, both had the episode "High Five." The second had an interview with Trini from the D.A.R.E. event they had.

Actually, "I'm Dreaming of a White Ranger"'s original VHS release containing the extra scene of Kat saying hi to the Rangers from Australia through the Viewing Globe DOES make sense canonically, because the VHS version of this episode could be placed easily into continuity before the final scene in Part 3 of "A Different Shade of Pink" since Kimberly spends possibly weeks to months training for the Pan Global Games.
