Goofs / Nitpicks:

  • While the Red Ranger from the Mighty Morphin' Power Rangers/Kyouryuu Sentai Zyuranger is the interview subject during the flu season segment, the Megazord depicted hails from Power Rangers Lightspeed Rescue/Kyuukyuu Sentai GoGoV. Additionally, since a single zord makes up the upper torso and arms, it's technically missing part of a zord, rather than one whole zord.
