HOLLYWOOD -- The "Mighty Morphin Power Rangers" compact disk read-only memory has shipped about 60,000 units, making it the biggest children's CD-ROM product to date, said Eric Doctorow, president of Domestic Home Video at Paramount Pictures.
"Children love the Power Rangers, so what better way to introduce them to the exciting world of multimedia than through their favorite TV show?" Doctorow asked. "We're thrilled that this title has the capability to literally thrust CD-ROM technology into mainstream America."
The CD-ROM includes five stories from the series that children can view in their entirety, view in individual segments or edit various scenes together. It also includes text information about the Power Rangers, their extraterrestrial friends and adversaries. The program carries a graphic tag at the end from DARE (Drug Abuse Resistance Education) containing the "Eight Ways to Say No" to drugs.
