Publication history[ edit ] With the relaxation of the Comics Code Authority 's rules init became possible for the first time to publish code-approved comic books with werewolves. The series name was suggested by Stan Lee and the initial creative team was Gerry Conway and Mike Ploog who worked from a plot by Roy and Jean Thomas for the first issue.
Alpha's 'magical powers' were not stated as such in the actual television show, but are instead stated by Alpha as "tapping into the Morphin Grid ". As the special is not considered to be part of official Power Rangers canon, these errors bear little significance. Criticism and Praise Despite the special's gentle and tender nature, Alpha's Magical Christmas is widely panned by most of the Power Rangers A magical night to remember community for several reasons: When the Rangers appear, Tommy is clad in his Green Ranger uniform, despite this special being set after the point when the Green Ranger powers were depleted.
The presence of Rocky, Adam and Aisha at the end of the special further confuses the issue, as they weren't on the team nor in Angel Grove at all during the Green Ranger era. Despite the criticisms, fans of Richard Steven Horvitz have praised his performance in the special.
Some fans enjoy the fact that the special has no fighting or villains wreaking havoc. Others praised the special for bringing to light Alpha's fears of the Rangers ignoring and neglecting him; in fact, it's his Christmas wish before the song I'll Be Home for Christmas starts.
It made its DVD debut on a bonus disc packaged with Shout! Factory's Mighty Morphin Power Rangers: It was also included on the Power Rangers Super Samurai: Notes This is notably the first production where Richard Steven Horvitz, the voice actor for Alpha 5, is credited by his name rather than "Richard Wood" as in the series.
The second time would be the end credits of Forever Red eight years later, where he voiced Alpha 7. This special reveals to us that Alpha has a singing skill, which is never shown in the series. The commercial for the special's original home video casette release, narrated by Alpha himself, was recently unearthed and posted to YouTube.
In the commercial, Alpha states that his video is a "timeless collection the whole family can enjoy year after year" and that it will "make your holidays a lot brighter". This was Cheryl Saban 's pet project, meant to give Mighty Morphin Power Rangers something out of the ordinary, which she felt was necessary.
Despite claims by Alpha's voice actor that the special was "smart marketing", it did not lead to the production of Alpha 5 merchandise.
The character would not receive a standalone figure until During one bit of the song "Good King Wenceslas", a golden ring can be seen on Suzy's left ring finger. Rita RepulsaLord Zeddand the other villains don't appear in this special, yet the Command Center alarms go off several times; however, the sound it makes is noticeably different than the sound used in the series, making an ascending sound rather than its iconic descending tone.
Elements of Christianity have never been mentioned in the series proper. Despite being a Christmas special, several of the clips are from Zedd's Monster Mash and Life's A Masqueradeboth Halloween-centric episodes; additionally, the special was released on October 19th, In the third song in this special, Deck the Halls, Alpha has the capability to shoot magical beams of starlight out of his hands, a power apparently caused by tapping into the Morphin Grid.
The Wedding showed, in canon, that Alpha can tap into the Morphin Grid to create both flowers and clothing, so we can also surmise that he is also tapping into the Grid to produce Christmas decorations in the same fashion. He covers it up by saying that he will use "magic" to create his decorations and, later on, Christmas gifts for the children.
The Morphin Grid even forms an extra present, one that Alpha gives to Cindy, with red and green energy ribbons. Lord Zedd launching an attack, resurrecting Primator to frame the Rangers in a heist of Christmas presents.
In Magical Christmas, there is no monster attack and Zedd is not mentioned. Several songs take place at different moments, with "Up on the Housetop" being sung while Alpha and the children prepare cookies instead of "Good King Wenceslas".
Instead of the "magical portal" being shown directly, it is only implied, and the kids are teleported out of the Command Center back to their families the same way they arrived. Tommy is in his White Ranger suit instead of his Green Ranger suit.
Alpha contacts Aisha and Adam on the Viewing Globe about the attack. Final Doom, when asked about the special, Richard Horvitz replied that it was Cheryl Saban's "pet project".
He thought it was a great idea and enjoyed being a part of it, believing it was "a smart marketing idea".Magical “Fireflies” are truly captivating, these unique lights are so lifelike, you’ll swear that real, glowing, fireflies are flashing, flickering, and fading magically in the night.
