If you love the camp of Power Rangers but want a more adult sense of humor, Mystic Cosmic Patrol might be just the thing for you.
Created by Gavin Hignight (Nickelodeon's Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles), Mystic Cosmic Patrol is a Power Rangers parody that embraces the franchise's eccentricities but splices in some adult dysfunction, mainly stemming from too much liquor (via ForcesofGeek).
Power Rangers fans will recognize the obvious inspirations here, whether it be the color themes of the Rangers themselves to their Zeo-like morphers and over the top Monsters. They even have their own Rita Repulsa inspired villain named 'Rutina'. Unlike the Power Rangers, this team doesn't seem to get along all that well, and spends half of their time covered in vomit or drinking. Zordon would be so proud, don't you think?
In the series' first episode, fans will be introduced to Potty Mouth, a sentient toilet who fights by shooting bacteria at his enemies. He makes for a deadly enemy, but you'd be surprised at just what can stop him.
It isn't the Rangers you're used to, but Mystic Cosmic Patrol is guaranteed to be an entertaining ride.
The series is executive produced by Tom Meyer-Klipsch and Hignight, and produced by Chris Wyatt, Laura Monaco, and Masterson. Cig Neutron handled the show's effects and makeup.
You can find the description for Mystic Cosmic Patrol below, and the series is set to premiere on Funny or Die August 24th.
"Mystic Cosmic Patrol," an interstellar spoof with exciting Kaiju action, features a special blend of comedy, martial arts and Sci-fi adventure where spandex clad heroes fight ridiculous rubber monsters. The pilot episode features "Malcolm in the Middle" star Chris Masterson as Jack the Blue Patrolman, leading a team consisting of Leo the Red Patrolman (Tim Jo from Fox's "Pitch"), Emily the Green Patrolman (Chelsea Tavares from Freeform's "Unfabulous"), Carl the Pink Patrolman (Chris Candy), Candy the Yellow Patrolman (Laura Monaco) and Micky the Black Patrolman (Gavin Hignight). With the wisdom of Gorgon (Tim Russ of "Star Trek Voyager") and their trusty Martini-Bot (John Kassir of "Tales from the Crypt"), only the Mystic Cosmic Patrol can put an end to Rutina's devious plots to destroy Earth."
