In the Very Special Christmas episode of the Power Rangers, the city was nearly destroyed by a giant reindeer.
Imagine the screams when that thing trit-trots over the bridge. The cries of “My god! It’s going to clean its antlers on the tower! Save yourselves, and the tiny gold-foil-covered children!”
As it turns out, the antlers should have been the least of their worries. When the thing’s head leaned back, its neck opening up like a hideous maw, and a fiery lazer-doom-ray blasted out and melted the trees…no, not ignited, melted, they were made of some sort of plastic or resin–THAT was a problem.
With a mighty cry of “SCREEAAAGHH! and a terrible grinding of gears it rolled down the bridge, a mighty antlered and vaguely festive doom machine. It did have some trouble bouncing over the great pumice mountain. Its wheels kept getting stuck.
Clearly, building everything out of one piece of molded, gold-colored plastic was part one of a series of bad ideas.

The bridge is just floating there,attached to nothing.
