Captain Tony Nelson is an astronaut. While on a mission, he discovered a mysterious bottle. Opening it, he released Jeannie (a Genie) who was so overjoyed at her release she promised to serve Captain Nelson. Nelson is unsure what to make of Jeannie, especially given that his work is highly secret and his superiors tend to keep a close eye on him. Written by

Located on the Columbia Pictures back lot - the "Columbia Ranch" - in Burbank the exterior facade used as the Bellows' house was also used as the Stephens' house in Bewitched (1964). See more »
Many of the exterior shots of Tony's home or other areas show mountains or hills in the background. Florida, and southeast Texas where the astronauts actually lived, were as flat as a pancake, especially around Cape Kennedy and Cocoa Beach where the Nelsons are supposed to live. See more »

What heterosexual male over the age of puberty wouldn't have wanted to have Barbara Eden as their own devoted and affectionate Jeannie?
Like most series built on some pent-up romantic tension between the leading characters ("Nanny and the Professor," to "Moonlighting") the problems arose when the series creators decided to put the couple together. It was a death knell...
It was hilarious that the network censors wouldn't allow them to show Barbara Eden's navel and a pity as well. She's closing in on 70 now but for those of us hitting puberty when the series premiered, she'll always have a special place in our...hearts.
