Power Rangers refrences/jokes in other TV Shows

So, I'm working on a little project and thought I could use a bit of help from some people. Does anyone know of any in jokes and/or refrences that were made toward Power Rangers in other TV Shows? Like the episode of Seinfeld where George had a Red Zeo action figure, or the episode of Supernatural that had Dean say "so you're Gods personal little Power Rangers?". Even spoofs to the show are good, like the Animainiacs episode.

Also, if you remember the season and episode title of those shows, please list them.

I remember there was a reference in Friends where Ross, Joey, and Chandler morphed. Forgot which episode, the clip is definitely on YouTube.

There's a Power Rangers reference in scrubs. Just type in "scrubs + power rangers" in youtube, it should come up.

The George/Red Zeo Ranger figure scene is one of my favorite things ever, btw.



And not sure if this counts, but:

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Kidz_in_the_Wood_(film)

That film has a little nod to Power Rangers involving Alfonso Ribeiro, and it was a tv movie, so it kind of counts lol.

S Club 7: Artistic Differences - When Bradley, one of the group, leaves to join a boyband he is forced to wear one of the matching outfits the group wear

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yTEn-b0YPIM#t=1m50s

They redubbed the scene for rebroadcast as on the first broadcast it wasn't "I feel like a disco Power Ranegr", but "I feel like a gay Power Ranger" (You can see he's saying "gay"), which was perhaps not the most PC thing to say.

There was an episode of The Big Bang Theory last season where Sheldon was motivating the others, and said "Go, Power Rangers, go."

Animaniacs had "Super Strong Warner Siblings", if anyone remembers that.

"Hey, I liked the song too!"
"Here, have some fat-free yogurt."

The dub of the Digimon movie had Kari going to her friends birthday party. Showing her wrapped present to Tai she said "I bought my friend a Pink Power Ranger."

I also remember Arthur having a parody, called the Fighting Fluoride Scour Rangers.

There's also this bit from Sesame Street.

Dexter's Laboratory also did one where Dexter's family teamed up to pilot a robot. Though that might have just been a reference to combining robot shows in general. They did have a "Go, Dexter Family, Go" song though.

There are 3 references in Fresh Prince of Bel-Air Season 5.

In the ep where Lisa and Will are at the bowling alley, and Lisa fights off the thug, she goes to tell Will that she knows Kung Fu.

Lisa: Will, I've been meaning to tell you that--

Will: What?! That you're a Power Ranger?

In the episode where Will gets hypnotized and has to take Nicky to preschool there are 2 references.

Nicky is making a turtle and the lady asks why the turtle is in his shell (Is he shy?), Nicky replys "No, he's watchig Power Rangers."

The other reference is when Uncle Phil and Vivian argue about Nicky going to a good school, Uncle says "So what if Nicky doesn't get into a good school? He can stay home with Will; watching Power Rangers and making himself dizzy."

There was that MegasXLR episode where Coop shoves the Power Ranger-esque Zords onto Megas.

CSI's had several references to PR over the yearsnot to mention guest cast members, recurring cast member Archie Kao...

They once made a reference to Silver Hills. That's the only one I really remember.

Scrubs referenced it in one episode.

Turk: I can't find my lucky tabasco do-rag!
JD: Why not just go with Power Rangers?
Turk: How are Power Rangers as lucky as tabasco?
JD: Remember that episode where communications with Zordon went out and the Megazord was destroyed?
Turk: How did I miss that episode? Oh yeah, I was making love to a woman.
JD: Power Rangers Ho!

Up until the Power Rangers Ho line, it was perfect.

That was more Voltron than PR IIRC.
