Assailed by many civil rights groups for it's characterization of a black as a thankful servant to a white, the NAACP announced in October of 1983 of winning changes to the content, including no more usage of the words "master" and "servant" on the show and less "jive talk" from the genie Shabu.

Long Forgotten Sitcom of the 80's
17 December 1999 | by (Bergen County, NJ, USA) – See all my reviews

This was yet another great sitcom that was unforunately "lost" through the years and most likely doesn't even exist in anyone's tape collections anymore.

I remember one episode where the family wished Shabu to give them all a credit card that they can use to get anyhting at stores for free...they wound up getting so much free stuff that it filled the rooms in their house up, so they wound up wishing everything never happened.
