Haim Saban (founder of Saban Entertainment and creator of Mighty Morphin Power Rangers) began the series in an attempt to increase the popularity of the Power Rangers series and to create a new show, since Power Rangers had been taken by Disney. Although it proved worthy, Walter Media (the company that owned rights to the show) cancelled it to make way for newer shows. Displeased, Saban signed out of Walter Media and began looking into other companies, including Walt Disney, which had bought his Power Rangers series. If Disney approved, the Power Rangers and Norris Fighters would be intertwined. In other words, they would be a two-in-one series. Luckily, Disney did approve and the show began airing again in 2009. Fans of the previous show called this new series "better than the original" and "like never before". When the show was renewed for a second season (Norris Fighters: Alpha), Power Rangers RPM and Norris Fighters combined in a brand-new, one-hour special. This caused more fans of Power Rangers to look into Norris Fighters and the show's views and ratings went up. By this time, some fans even demanded a movie.
Norris Fighters (2003)
The original premise of show was to have Chuck Norris battle against everyday villains. There was no main plot or main villain, there was just subplots in each episode and, of course, the occasional recurring bad guy. Norris Fighters (2003) lasted only four episodes before being cancelled by Walter Media. The series would eventually hit DVD in stores by June 2004.
