Trivia

Songwriters Gerry Goffin and Carole King wrote a theme song titled "Jeannie" but was rejected before the show's premiere. See more »

Goofs

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 »

Quotes

Nelson: How are things going?
Jeannie: Terrible. I have to make dinner - I mean actually make it without magic. We are liable to die.

Every guy wanted to have a Jeannie...
5 May 2003 | by (San Ramon, California) – See all my reviews

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.
