I don't particularly care what Linkara says (his videos have their own narrative that often doesn't quite mesh with reality, in the same way that Amit, who wrote for Power Rangers, often gives background information that was what Amit 'wanted' to do, rather than any actual official plans.)I'm going to assume that you never watched Linkara's History of Power Rangers retrospective cause otherwise your comment about me being wrong absolutely no sense whatsoever since he goes into an excruciating amount of detail regarding the sheer amount of meddling Disney did during its tenor.
Everything I have said came from people doing production for Power Rangers and if you don't believe me, feel free to ask Linkara himself.
I know the people who archived and wrote down the history for that fandom, the people who originally gave Linkara his information, along with people who worked on various seasons (in fact, me and lost were both a, reasonably small but necessary, part of the team that put together the PR fandom convention prior to the first convention being held.)
They weren't particularly more exciting production wise, the stories are just more fun to tell (and due to the era more fun stories are known.)
David Yost being gay bashed by higher production crew causing him to walk off and never return.
Various cast members arguing with crew, leaving, sometimes in the middle of filming.
Zeo being an inversion of the production of the show to decrease production cost.
The head writer working so hard he quit after basically having a nervous breakdown
The head composer not being involved anymore due to lack of credit, money, or even real amounts of time to do the work.
Studio put together quickly and originally had a documentary maker doing poor ADR work.
Person in charge of RPM not working on a live action show before and Disney throwing them out.
The person in charge for a number of seasons treating it as a producing job rather than a more creative endeavor.
The writers strike and the rumors and heresay it brought.
The MMPR 'remaster' and a member of that team actively taunting fans.
There are of course many more stories, but the fact of the matter is, the legends and stories of the Disney era are simply more fun to hear than those of the Saban era, and better known.
It's sort of like people passing around that his name is Billy Cranston, naming him after a loyal character actor who later went on and became one of the greatest actors of the modern world, when the truth is... we have documentation and evidence the name was being used in production materials earlier when Saban was shopping the show around and the name was a fun coincidence.
