entry, Mighty Morphin Power Rangers, debuted on August 28, 1993, and helped launch the Fox Kids programming block of the 1990s, during which it catapulted into popular culture along with a line
of action figures and other toys by Bandai. As of 2010, the media franchise has generated over $5 billion in retail sales worldwide.
