Character History

Boohoo (toy form).JPG

As an idea given by Klank, Boohoo (who according to Klank is "wonderful with children") was dispatched from the Machine Empire as a plan to enhance the frequency and amplitude of baby Joey's voice to make the soundwaves extremely destructive. He first appeared in Joey's room disguised as a toy clown and when the Red Ranger left, he reverted to his real form and used his High Sound Frequency Wave ability at the baby. He later returns and encounters the Yellow, Green, Blue, and Pink Rangers with baby Joey. When the Red Ranger appears, he battles alongside an army of Cogs. The monster was able to stun the Rangers with his lightning attack as the Cogs dispatch Alpha (who was protecting the baby) away. Afterwards, both he and the Cogs were able to escape with the baby. He later returns with both the army of Cogs, Klank, and Orbus to Angel Grove's electric power plane to destroy it with baby Joey's cry. The Rangers appeared and battled the Cogs. Tommy managed to make it to the baby, but Boohoo fired energy blasts at him, causing the Red Ranger to nearly fall, but he manages to regain his footing and make it to the baby. Unfortunately, the bottle was empty, causing the baby to cry. Boohoo then fires energy bubbles from his baton at the Red Ranger, which causes the area to shake and the baby crib that Joey was on to roll and fall off. The Red Ranger grabs the crib, but to his shock, he finds it empty. Luckily, it was revealed that Billy was able to teleport Joey to the Command Center, where he'll be safe. Now angered, Boohoo summons the Cog Jets to attack the Rangers, who were able to take them out with the Zeo Laser Pistols. Boohoo then fired his lightning waves at the Rangers and even ambush them with energy rings fired from his Clown Rattle. The Red Ranger then used his Zeo Power Sword to attack him, but he missed. Klank and Orbus then enlarge Boohoo the Clown, so the Rangers summon the Zeo Zords and formed the Zeo Megazord to battle the monster. Boohoo had the upper hand with the Baby Bottle Bombs and mouth laser combination, but the Zeo Megazord was able to deflect the mouth lasers back at him with the Zeo Megazord Saber. The Rangers then used the Zeo Megazord Saber to destroy Boohoo the Clown once and for all.
