Jason Lee Scott was the original Red Ranger in the early 1990s children’s television show, Mighty Morphin Power Rangers. The show was about a team of teenagers who were able to transform into superheroes called the Power Rangers. Many elements of the show were adapted from the popular Japanese series Super Sentai that first aired in 1975.
Each Power Ranger had their own signature color and were able to summon their own Zord, a powerful biomechanical robot that the Rangers piloted in combat. As the leader of the Power Rangers, Jason had the most powerful Zord, the Tyrannosaurus Dinozord, which he summoned by yelling, “Tyrannosaurus Dinosaur Power!”
