The Mighty Morphin Power Rangers began as a TV franchise first released on August 28, 1993. The premise consisted of several American teens who were chosen by an alien being known as Zordon to battle the forces of alien invaders on earth. To do this they were given the power to “morph” into warriors with super powers, each unique to the chosen teen. They were most notably given alien technology that could materialize after a series of power up moves that could combine into a complete “megazord” or giant fighting robot. The original group of teems consisted of Jason Lee Scott, Kimberly Hart, Zack Taylor, Trini Kwan and Billy Cranston. As the show progressed, perhaps the most popular member, Tommy Oliver is introduced and joins the Power Ranger forces. With commercial success occurring over-night this show became a staple of 1990’s media and remains popular to this day.

The blue ranger, true name William “Billy” Cranston, was one of the original members of the rangers and is the only original member of the Mighty Morphin Power Ranger to continue throughout the entire series and the second longest-serving ranger, only after Tommy Oliver. It was revealed in 2013 that the inspiration for Billy’s last name was drawn from Bryan Cranston, the leading actor in the hit series Malcolm in the Middle.
