I, Eye Guy is the eighth episode of Mighty Morphin Power Rangers.

Synopsis

Billy's young friend Willy is in trouble when Rita Repulse sends her latest monster the Eye Guy to capture him, so she can steal his genius from him. The Rangers need to save Willy before it's too late.

Plot

Billy's young friend Willy creates a virtual reality machine that he plans on entering in the science fair. Willy and the Rangers (in civilian disguise) are on their way to the competition when they are ambushed by Putties in the park. The Rangers are able to fend off the Putties without too much trouble and continue with Willy to the Youth Center.

Rita Repulsa wants Willy's machine and summons Eye Guy after Finster's recommendation. Eye Guy's sole mission is to capture the smartest children and steal their intelligence.

At the Youth Center, Bulk and Skull's antics indirectly cause Willy to be disqualified from the competition, even though it wasn't his fault. Willy goes off by himself to the park and the others follow after him. Eye Guy's giant main eye appears and captures Willy, leaving behind only his hat. Willy is transported to the world inside Eye Guy's main eye. Jason, Zack, and Billy look for Willy in the area, but only find his hat at the pond. Trini and Kimberly regroup with the other three. They all suspect that Rita's the cause of this and go to Zordon.

At the Command Center, Zordon tells the Rangers about Eye Guy and the Rangers morph. The Rangers confront Eye Guy (sans main eye) and Baboo. The Power Blaster blows Eye Guy up, but the eyes reform into the monster. He blasts the Rangers and they fall down to the bottom of a hill. Zordon alerts Billy that the main eye is in the forest. The remaining four keep Eye Guy busy.

Billy uses the Power Lance against the main eye, weakening the rest of the monster. Rita Repulsa makes Eye Guy grow and Megazord battles the giant. It shatters into individual eyes, but again reforms. Megazord's Power Sword finally kills Eye Guy and Willy is freed.

The group and Willy goes back to the Youth Center. Billy returns Willy's hat and Ernie and Willy's professor both are playing Willy's VR game. The professor apologizes for overreacting for something that wasn't Willy's fault and he awards him the first prize. Bulk and Skull show up in towels after the day's earlier mishaps and ask for their clothes back from the makeover machine. Kimberly and Trini grant their request and hand over their washed but now shrunken clothes.

Cast

Notes

  • First episode where the Monster-Matic isn't shown creating the monster. Whether it was used off-screen or Eye Guy was summoned from off-world is unclear.
  • Billy and Willy (should) have the same first name - "William".
  • Flashbacks of Eye Guy's attacks include original footage from the episode of Kyoryu Sentai Zyuranger that "I, Eye Guy" is adapted from, as he abducts the little girl that is Willy's Zyuranger counterpart.
  • This is the first episode where the Rangers double thrust their morphers.
  • The Professor who rejects Willy is played by Tom Wyner who previously voiced Bones, The Giant, and The Mighty Minotaur.
    • This is also the first time Tom Wyner physically appears on-screen as opposed to just doing voices. His main recurring on-screen role would be the reporter on TV in a few episodes.

Errors

  • The ride in the VR goggles switches between a wooden roller coaster and a metal roller coaster.
  • The fair is full of many young geniuses yet Rita only wants Willy's intelligence?
  • The Megazord's weapon is called Mega Sword rather then Power Sword. This is either a mistake or the writers realized that they had two items with the same name (Red Ranger's weapon).
  • The Japanese girl who was captured by Eye Guy in the flashback (footage from Zyuranger) is seen behind the Blue Ranger when he gets blasted by Eye Guy.
  • The trolley Bulk and Skull were dumped into the "Funky Fashion Machine" by vanishes in the next shot where the inventor pushes the button to activate it.
  • Willy and the Professor are clearly dubbed and the last scene has almost none of the lines sync up,
  • The Rangers showed up with Willy unmorphed despite just being shown meeting him morphed.  Did the morphed Rangers leave and then the unmorphed Rangers just appear around the corner? That wouldn’t be suspicious at all.
