History

When the Power Rangers are going on Harvey Garvey's TV show to promote education, Lord Zedd sees it as a chance to get rid of them once and for all. After an evil twin idea falls through, due to Goldar and the Putty Patrol failing to capture the real Power Rangers, Zedd creates the Showbiz Monster from a television show camera outside of the studio. The Showbiz Monster attacks the center of Angel Grove where he starts to rampage in order to force the Rangers to fight him. When the Rangers arrive, the monster summons the Putty Patrol but they are defeated by the Rangers. Lord Zedd then makes the Showbiz Monster grow with a Growth Bomb with the monster now being equipped with a sword. However, before the Rangers can summon the Thunderzords, Goldar arrives to fight Tommy and he is forced to sit out the Zord fight to fight Goldar. The other Rangers form the Thunder Megazord and the Showbiz Monster charges before jumping high into the air to finish them off. However, at the last second, the Thunder Megazord pulls out the Thunder Saber and defeats him.
