Funny!
29 February 2000 | by (USA) – See all my reviews

I can't believe I'm the only person to comment on this sensational show! This was a blink-and-you'll-miss-it show that lasted for one season on ABC's TGIF lineup in 1997 until 1998. John Ales played a genie living in a rug that Gillian Apple (Harley Jane Kozak) buys one day. Her kids, Mickey(Alex McKenna) and Travis(Nathan Lawrence) discover the genie and persuade their mom to let them keep the rug. below is one of my favorite quotes. This starts with the genie taking a bath in the sink.

Gillian: Get your genie butt outta there!

Genie: OK, but don't look in the fridge!

This show didn't deserve its cruel fate!

Grade: A
