When asked why did the show go off the air, Barbara Eden replied that producers felt they have enough episodes (over 100) for a syndication sale. She also attributed the end of the show to the fact that Tony and Jeannie got married, so the show lost viewers. Sidney Sheldon, Larry Hagman, and Bill Daily also agreed with the latter. See more »

In the world of the 50s and 60s silly sitcoms, this is an except, a colorful and exciting show. Barbara Eden is very good at her role, Larry Hagman is better actor here than in "Dallas" or another serieses. The best is Bill Daily's Maj. Healey, but I like the late Hayden Rorke's suspicious Dr. Bellows too. When I saw the series' episodes first time I got a laughing-stock. It is fantastic! The first and second seasons are perfect, the third and fourth are good, but the fifth is a silly, American family sitcom. After Jeannie marries her master, the series goes wrong. But except for those 20 episodes, the whole series is my favorite sitcom of all times!
