I loved this show
3 April 2003 | by (Naperville IL) – See all my reviews

Although I remember a few "racist" accusations because the gennie was black this show was so much fun. I loved this show when I was 7 and was upset by it's cancellation. All I remember is the friendship between the lead male and the genie. It taught me a bit about friendship. I miss this show and it always will be a great reminder of my childhood.
