“Jungle Fury” to Join “Samurai” on Nicktoons

Rangerboard reports that Power Rangers Jungle Fury will be the first classic season to join Power Rangers Samurai on Nicktoons. Power Rangers Jungle Fury will make its Nicktoons debut on November 18, 2011 in the form of a 48–hour marathon. “Jungle Fury” consists of 32 half hour episodes, or 16 hours worth of footage total when commercials are included; a 48–hour marathon would thus consist of each episode being cablecast three times over the course of two days.

Although The Power Rangers Samurai Times generally does not cover news that doesn’t pertain to “Samurai,” (or “Super Samurai,”) we have and will continue to make exceptions for “big news” pertaining to Power Rangers as a whole. The Nicktoons reruns were initially scheduled to begin in October 2010, but that never happened, and the “Jungle Fury” marathon is the first evidence we have seen of the Nicktoons reruns actually materializing.

Season Two Goes Super with Title “Power Rangers Super Samurai”

According to The Licensing Book Fall 2011, Power Rangers Samurai will not only be counted as two separate seasons, but as  two separate seasons with two slightly different names. On page 17 of The Licensing Book, Kirk Bloomgarden is quoted as saying,

In the Samurai theme, there’s the initial 20 episodes, and then there’s Super Samurai, which is the further 20 [episodes].

Mr. Bloomgarden goes on to talk about the Power Rangers Samurai specials, but the use of the term “Super Samurai” to describe the second half of Power Rangers Samurai should remove any remaining doubt that the Samurai theme will be kept for two years, and that the second half of the show will be treated as a second season.
