Klank & Orbus are part of King Mondo's staff.  King Mondo and Queen Machina rule the Machine Empire.  King Mondo and Queen Machina had a young son, Prince Sprocket.  Orbus sits on Klank's shoulder.  King Mondo had found a galaxy full of resources for his empire.  King Mondo decided to take over the galaxy.  Queen Machine pointed out that Lord Zedd and Rita Repulsa were taking over this galaxy.  This did not stop King Mondo.  King Mondo had his foot soldiers, Cogs, in Quadrafighters attack the palace on the moon.  Lord Zedd and crew would flee the palace.  Later, King Mondo had Klank & Orbus, Queen Machina, and Prince Sprocket gazed at the view of the Earth.  King Mondo planned to conquer Earth and rule it with an iron fist.

King Mondo had been watching the progress of the Cogs and he was not happy.  King Mondo:  I specifically ordered that they be destroyed!  How are we going to complete our machine empire and conquer the universe, if my cogs can't even stop the likes of Rita Repulsa and Lord Zedd?  King Mondo waited for an answer, but Klank & Orbus, Queen Machine, and Prince Sprocket had none to give him.   Queen Machina calmed King Mondo down by telling him to be careful his oil was being to boil.  Prince Sprocket quickly placed the blame on Klank & Orbus.  Klank denied he was at fault.  King Mondo became furious and sparks flew out of his head.  King Mondo wanted strength from his staff, not weakness.  Klank apologized and King Mondo calmed down.  King Mondo gave the order for the Cogs to continue their attack on Rita and Zedd.  Prince Sprocket, eager to please his father, begged to give the command and King Mondo let him.  Later, Prince Sprocket would report that Rita and the rest made it to Serpentera and got away, but that simply made it easier to conquer Earth.  King Mondo praised Prince Sprocket.  Prince Sprocket became ecstatic and stated he should be king of everything.  King Mondo reprimanded him and told him not to push it.  King Mondo then had Klank & Orbus launch an attack on Angel Grove and warned him not to fail.  Klank & Orbus quickly sent down the Cogs.  The Power Rangers Zeo would destroy them.

King Mondo had sent Klank & Orbus to work on upgrading the artillery on Staroid.  King Mondo planned on using Staroid to attack the Power Chamber.  Klank & Orbus soon reported to King Mondo that Staroid had been upgraded.  King Mondo told Klank that he had managed to save himself from the scrap heap once more.  Staroid was sent down, but would be destroyed by the Power Rangers.

King Mondo had started his next plan of action.  Queen Machina and Prince Sprocket were with him.  Several Cogs were dressed in doctor's uniforms and they had Orbus on a table.  King Mondo:  Our monstrous machine, Silo, has been built by the Cogs on Earth.  While Orbus is being equipped with the technology to make my creations grow epic size.  Then I will program the sinister Silo.  Soon I will be able to launch his power against the Rangers.  Queen Machina:  Absolutely brilliant.  Orbus:  Hey, be careful with that clamp, I just had it galvanized.  Klank gave Orbus a hard time and soon regretted it.  King Mondo had plans to modified Klank as well and Klank found himself on the table as well.  It was Orbus' turn to give Klank a hard time.  King Mondo decided to leave his base to watch Silo destroy the Power Rangers.  King Mondo soon joined by Klank & Orbus.  King Mondo instructed Orbus to make Silo grow giant size.  Klank swung Orbus around and soon Orbus attached himself to Silo.  Silo grew giant size and Orbus returned to Klank.  King Mondo was very pleased.  King Mondo, Klank & Orbus watched as Silo battled the Rangers in their Megazord.  Soon Silo had the Megazord wrapped in chains and swung them in the direction of the sun.  King Mondo was very pleased and thought he should get out more often to see his victories.  But it didn't last long.  The Megazord returned and battled Silo once more.  The Rangers destroyed Silo.  King Mondo vowed that the Rangers would bow to his greatness one day.

King Mondo had been watching Angel Grove High School, along with Queen Machina, Prince Sprocket, and Klank & Orbus.  Tommy and Katherine were taking a parenting class and were pretending to be married.  Katherine had decided to have Joey, her parents' friends' baby, to add to the project.  When Joey began to cry, everyone became distressed.  Prince Sprocket:  Boy, that kid is loud.  King Mondo:  Yes, this gives me a magnificent idea my dear.  Queen Machina:  Really.  Then you must ell me al about it.  King Mondo:  This child's normal cry gives such a disturbing effect, what do you think would happen if we increase his volume?  Sprocket?  Prince Sprocket:  He'll get louder?  But Klank knew what King Mondo was planning.  Klank explained how the volume of the baby's cries could be destructive.  Prince Sprocket pretended he knew that, but Orbus wasn't fooled.  Orbus and Prince Sprocket insulted each other until King Mondo had enough.  Klank suggested using Boo Hoo the Clown to increase Joey's volume.  King Mondo was impressed and told Klank that there was hope for him yet.  Boo Hoo the Clown was successful in amplifying Joey's cries.  The next time Joey cried, the whole school and ground shook.  Prince Sprocket tried to claim credit for the success.  Orbus argued with him.  Queen Machine credited King Mondo and King Mondo took the credit.  King Mondo then wanted to increase the volume of Joey's cries even further.  Several Cogs and Boo Hoo the Clown landed close to the school.  Alpha 5 had teleported down to protect Joey as the Rangers battled the Cogs.  Boo Hoo the Clown used a shock stick on Alpha 5, shutting him down.  Boo Hoo the Clown teleport out with Joey.  They ended up at the electric plant because King Mondo wanted to knock out Angel Grove's power.  Klank & Orbus were sent down to meet Boo Hoo the Clown.  Soon the Rangers arrived.  The Rangers battled the Cogs.  Klank sent Orbus to make Boo Hoo the Clown grow.  The Rangers battled and destroyed Boo Hoo the Clown.  With the destruction of  Boo Hoo the Clown  Joey's volume to the normal cry of a baby.  Prince Sprocket and Orbus insulted each other once more for the failure of the plan.

King Mondo had been watching Angel Grove.  Adam, Rocky, and Shawn were at baseball practice.  Tanya had come to watch and ended up pitching.  Queen Machina, Prince Sprocket, Klank & Orbus were with him.  King Mondo:  The Rangers are engaged in children's games, while we sit doing nothing.  A perfect opportunity wasted.  Queen Machina:  Make yourselves useful and come up with a plan.  Klank:  If I may say so, I have come up with quite a few plans, but they always seem to be ignored.  Orbus:  They seem ignored because they are.  King Mondo:  Why don't you take a stab at it son?  Prince Sprocket:  Oh boy!  Prince Sprocket soon came up with a plan.  Prince told his parents he was going to send down a special pitching machine, (the monster People Pitcher).  When a pitch was hit, the batter would be trapped inside.  Prince Sprocket hoped to trap Adam, Rocky, and Shawn, that way the rest of the Rangers would arrive and he could trap them as well.  King Mondo was very proud of his son and the plan began.  Several Cogs were sent down to modify the pitching machine.  There was a moment when the plan looked like it would go to ruin, when Bulk & Skull arrive and began messing around with the pitching machine, but soon Rocky, Shawn, and Adam arrive.  They broke up the fight between Bulk & Skull.  Shawn would leave when he realize he had forgotten his glove.  Adam and Rocky stayed to practice.  Rocky's Zeonizer was sitting exposed in Rocky's backpack.  King Mondo sent down several Cogs to get the Zeonizer.  Rocky hit the pitch and was trapped inside the pitching machine with no way to get out.  The plan was going well.  Prince Sprocket, Klank & Orbus, plus several more Cogs arrive in Angel Grove to help People Pitcher.  Prince Sprocket was fearful of the four Rangers, especially when they demanded Rocky's Zeonizer.  Prince Sprocket told them he didn't have it.  The four Rangers assumed Klank had it, but he told them the Cogs had it.  Prince Sprocket soon teleported away from the Rangers.  Klank & Orbus stayed.  Orbus made People Pitcher grow giant size.  Red Ranger would arrive inside and give Rocky his Zeonizer.  The Rangers formed their Megazord.  The Rangers would battle and destroy People Pitcher. 

King Mondo had sent Klank & Orbus to scout out the area of Angel Grove.  Klank:  Orbus, you see that?!  Just as I suspected, the place is waiting to self destruct.  We have to give it a little help.  King Mondo:  Klank!  Klank:  Coming!  Klank & Orbus soon arrived on base.  Queen Machina and Prince Sprocket were there as well.  King Mondo:  Well, did you find anything?  Klank:  Yes sire.  Klank had discovered lava underneath Angel Grove.  Prince Sprocket quickly suggested they use it to destroy Angel Grove, which was Klank & Orbus' idea.  Klank & Orbus argued with Prince Sprocket until King Mondo put a stop to it.  Queen Machina and King Mondo credited Prince Sprocket with the idea.  King Mondo told them he had the perfect monster, Digster.  Digster and several Cogs were sent down to Angel Grove to release the lava.  Later, Prince Sprocket, Klank & Orbus were sent down to a cave, to supervise the dig.  Prince Sprocket would hear Katherine yelling for Smokey and sent several Cogs to go after her, even through King Mondo had already called off the pursuit of Katherine.  Later, the four Rangers would arrive.  Orbus would make Digster grow giant size.  The Rangers would battle and destroy Digster, ruining the plan.  King Mondo was furious.  Prince Sprocket quickly placed the blame on Klank & Orbus.  King Mondo then directed his angry at Klank & Orbus, until Queen Machina reminded him not to make his oil boil.

King Mondo had Klank worked on a transmitter.  Klank soon reported that the device was done.  Several Cogs were sent down to the Captain Pete and Puppet Man show in the Youth Center.  The transmitter would make Puppetman evil and he was able to cast a beam that hypnotize the children into becoming evil drones.  The plan was a success as the Rangers were reluctant to battle children.  Later, Billy would make the discovery of the transmitter.  The Rangers would destroy the transmitter.  Alpha 5 would rebuild Puppetman in time for the next show.  Once the transmitter was destroyed, the children returned to normal.

Klank & Orbus, along with Prince Sprocket, were hiding in some hills, watching a movie set below.  Katherine, Tanya, and Rocky happened to be extras in the movie.  Bulk & Skull were there as well to provide security for the set.  Klank:  Talk about your rank amateur.  Your next film will be bigger and better than they could ever dream.  Prince Sprocket:  Really?  I mean, of course.  Let me see.  Wow!  They use some really cool monsters.  My movie won't be any good without good monsters.  Klank wanted to help out Prince Sprocket and sent down several Cogs to steal the monster costumes from the set.  Tanya, Rocky, and Katherine chased after the Cogs.  More Cogs were waiting when the three teens caught up to them.  Soon Adam and Tommy joined their friends.  The five teens morphed and battled the Cogs.  This was a trap and soon the Rangers found themselves trapped in Prince Sprocket's movie dimension.  Klank appeared on a small TV set in the dimension and told the Rangers they were to be part of Prince Sprocket's next movie.  Zeo Rangers two and five were first called to the set.  After awhile, Billy managed to contact the remaining three Rangers through the small TV set Klank had used.  Billy told the three Rangers if they change the course of the movie, they can break out of the dimension.  This is what the Rangers did.  Klank & Orbus were not too upset.  They use four of the movie costumes to create four monsters to battle the Rangers.  Orbus made one of the monsters grow giant size.  The Megazord was formed and eventually all the monsters were destroyed.

Klank & Orbus were standing with King Mondo, Queen Machina, and Prince Sprocket when they were watching Angel Grove.  King Mondo and Queen Machina were outrage that a space ship had landed in Angel Grove without their permission.  This would turn out to be Cestro, who had come to Earth looking for Billy's help.

Klank & Orbus were hiding by some bushes.  King Mondo had wanted to surprise Queen Machina on her birthday with the gift of the mysterious piano player (Skull).  The Cogs had failed to capture the piano player, so King Mondo had created Fortissimodo.  Fortissimodo and several Cogs had successfully captured the piano player, but Green Ranger came leaping towards them.  Soon the rest of the Rangers were there as well.  Fortissimodo and the Cogs were not doing so well.  Klank swung Orbus around.  Orbus connected himself to Fortissimodo and Fortissimodo grew to giant size.  Orbus returned to Klank.  The Rangers continued their battle against Fortissimodo and destroyed him.

Klank, Orbus, King Mondo, Queen Machina, and Prince Sprocket had been watching the computer club at Angel Grove High School.  Tanya, Adam, and Raymond were in the club.  A virus had almost been released on the computer Tanya was working on, but Raymond managed to stop it.  King Mondo:  So a little virus shakes them up, does it?  That can be very useful.  Queen Machina:  Did you see those pathetic humans scramble over that machine?  We're so superior.  Klank:  Your majesty, I just had a splendid idea.  Prince Sprocket:  I know.  Why don't we send down our own computer virus?  Which had also been Klank's idea.  King Mondo and Queen Machina ignored Klank and praised Prince Sprocket for the idea.  King Mondo created the monster Mean Screen to infect all the computers in Angel Grove.  Klank & Orbus went with Mean Screen to a computer room.  Mean Screen set to work immediately and they soon came across information on the zords.  Klank had Mean Screen plant a virus in the zords as well.  Things work well for awhile.  The city was in chaos as machines all over the city malfunction.  The Rangers had arrived, but their zords would not work for them.  Klank & Orbus watched the commotion with glee.  Klank swung Orbus around and Orbus made Mean Screen grow to giant size.  Green Ranger would leave and later return with a disc that would take care of the virus in the zords.  Once the Rangers had their zords back, they form their Megazord, battle Mean Screen and destroyed him.  After the battle, Klank & Orbus had returned to the Skybase.  King Mondo was very upset over the failure of the plan.  Prince Sprocket immediately reminded his dad that it had been Klank's fault.  Klank protested, but King Mondo took out his fury at Klank and hit him with his staff.

Klank, Orbus, Prince Sprocket, Queen Machina, and King Mondo were keeping an eye on Billy's space pod.  Klank:  Billy's space pod is approaching our range.  Orbus:  Our coordinates are locked in your highness.  King Mondo:  Very good, but how do we get him here?  Klank:  After we disable his craft, he'll float right up to our door.  King Mondo:  Excellent.  Once we have Billy, the Rangers will follow.  Prepare to fire on my command.  King Mondo laughed.  When Billy's space pod came close enough, the Machine Empire began firing on Billy's craft.  It did the trick and knocked Billy off course.  But the teens below came up with their plans to get Billy back.  King Mondo soon found out and sent down Klank & Orbus, along with Mechanizer, to stop the Rangers from getting fuel cells.  But Klank, Orbus, and Mechanizer will fail and Billy return to Angel Grove safely.

Queen Machine had been watching the Youth Center.  King Mondo, Prince Sprocket, and Klank & Orbus were with her.  Tommy had just received a letter from Kimberly, breaking up with him, and Tommy was very upset.  Queen Machina:  Broken hearted humans are so pathetic.  Don't you agree my darling?  King Mondo:  I do indeed.  We must take advantage of this.  If only we could exploit their emotional weaknesses.  Klank:  We do have a monster who causes love sickness with those who come in contact with her ray.  Prince Sprocket:  Yeah, we'll use Robo Cupid!  King Mondo and Queen Machine gave full credit to their son for the idea of using Robo Cupid.  The plan was to have humans fall in love with machines, and therefore would not let any harm come to his soldiers.  King Mondo sent Klank & Orbus to take care of the plan.  Klank went down to the industrial district of Angel Grove, along with Klank.  Robo Cupid was there.  Klank gave her the orders.  Robo Cupid had shot some beams into a mirror and it made her fall in love with Klank.  Robo Cupid chased Klank around and soon had him in a tight grip.  Orbus laughed at them and hoped Klank and Robo Cupid would be very happy together.  Klank was not amused and asked Orbus for help.  Orbus shot out some laser beams, which broke the spell.  Robo Cupid was then sent on her mission.
