It's Morphin', NOT Morphine...


I always remembered the joke that said, "Boo boo Power Rangers..." because of the "morphin" and there's the gag that it's morphine time because it sounds similar to morphin. I always thought about whether or not it was really Toei's or Saban's idea. Morphin if you look at it is morphing without the g or in short, you may consider it a contraction, for some reason they decided to use the name "Mighty Morphin'" instead of "Mighty Morphing" because the whole misconception can be easily developed.

I have no guess whatsoever to why the name Morphin' was used when it could be easily mistaken for morphine. Morphine is used to treat moderate or severe pain and it's derived from opium which of course, needs a medical expert to administer it considering the side effects. Did Saban and Toei oversee the whole idea before the name "Mighty Morphin'" was even implemented or did somebody release it without checking for any typographical error?

I don't even know what to think why it went to Morphin' instead of Morphing...
