The Power Rangers and Sylvia, Trini’s 7 year-old cousin, are having some fun at the Circus Fair. There are numerous clowns around, including Pineapple The Clown, which appeals especially to Sylvia. What they don’t realize is that the Circus Fair is actually a trap set up by Rita. The clowns are all Putty Patrollers, and Pineapple The Clown is actually Pine Octopus the monster. This monster has the ability to produce a powder that turns anyone who comes into contact with it into a two dimensional form.

Pineoctopus throws the powder at Sylvia. She now looks like a cardboard cutout. The Power Rangers, minus Trini, fight Pineoctopus, while Trini is at the Command Center working with Alpha to restore Sylvia to normal. She splashes Sylvia with water and she returns to normal. Trini rejoins the group and informs them that water is the key. They freeze Pineoctopus and defeat him with a blast from the Megazord.
