I Dream of Jeannie......ON LSD!
31 December 2002 | by (Hong Kong) – See all my reviews

I remember seeing "Design for Dreaming" on an episode of MST3K, and it instantly reminded me of American Sitcom "I Dream of Jeannie", if the staff were using LSD.

The plot has to do with a dancer in a fantasy world whom is invited to a ball by a masked man, and sees every dream car she wants. Plus, watch for the instant light stoves, magical costume changing and cakes that comes out of the oven, with candles and everything!

Design for Dreaming? More like "Design for an Acid Trip".
