Jungle Fury tops Internet Toy searches: The King of the Jungle is reclaiming his crown! Too bad he’s got nothing to show for it.

So, did any of you catch the Power Rangers Jungle Fury marathon on Nicktoons over the weekend. I know I certainly did (in fact, it took up most of my Saturday). Well, probably one of the most interesting things to come out of the marathon had nothing to do with the show, but with a major boom in toy searches.

Over the weekend, toy searches for Power Rangers Jungle Fury skyrocketed, and top search on Saturday (11/19) was for the Bandai.com Power Rangers Jungle Fury website (which is still up, btw). This was according to newstaar.com, who, while also mentioning the current series Power Rangers Samurai, was apparently unaware of the fact that toys and general merchandise for Jungle Fury were no longer in production (you can still find stuff online, but nothing available in stores). But this is still a major victory for Saban Brands an their partnership with Nick. Why? Because within the three days that marathon ran for, they made one of the lowest rated Ranger series produced under Disney into an actual overnight sensation (it actually happened overnight, can you believe it?). I wouldn’t be surprised to find out later that they were going to do something like this again, only this time coinciding with the release of a new toy line like the Power Rangers Super Legends. I smell big money on the horizon. 😛

Power Rangers Jungle Fury Coming to Nicktoons: This November, Unleash the Beast!

Well, it looks like someone’s finally making good on their promise. 😛

Nickelodeon announced on Twitter yesterday that their would be a Power Rangers 48-hour marathon, but it’s not for the one you think it is. It’s for Power Rangers Jungle Fury! Check out the original Tweet:

Hey Power Rangers fans, wanna see some of the previous Ranger series? JungleFury joins #Nicktoons on 11/18 at 7pm ET w/ a 48 hr marathon!

For something that hasn’t gotten a lot of attention, this is actually HUGE news! While Jungle Fury might not be everyone’s favorite season (btw it is one of my personal favorites), they are actually running an older season of Power Rangers on Nicktoons, like they said they would, and this could lead to other older seasons seeing new life on this new network. And besides, it’ll be fun to re-watch Jungle Fury, relive all your favorite moments. I plan on trying to catch at least part of it, and you should too! 😉 And remember, that’s November 18th at 7 p.m. EST on Nicktoons.

Jungle Beast, Spirit Unleashed!
