Storyline

Tony picks up a hitchhiking hippie named Suzy who is on the lam from her authoritarian father, who not only happens to be Tony's new commanding officer, General Winfield Schaffer, but who is also Tony's new neighbor. Unfortunately, Suzy decides to hide out at Tony's house and finds out about Jeannie. However, the worst is yet to come as Suzy blackmails Tony into letting her spaced out boyfriend Harold, who Schaffer doesn't approve of, hide out at his house or else she will spill the beans about Jeannie.

The Lewis and Clarke Expedition
22 December 2013 | by (Youngstown,Ohio) – See all my reviews

"Jeannie, My Guru" was a significant episode, primarily because it introduced Vinton Hayworth as General Winfield Schaeffer, cast because Barton MacLane had been ailing, and died just two days following this very broadcast (with three final episodes yet to be aired). This no-nonsense martinet isn't as much fun as General Peterson, and his teenage daughter Suzie (Hilary Thompson) is a typical hippie of the day, making this one of the most dated entries (she never made a repeat appearance). Like the older generation usually did, her father disapproves of her long haired boyfriend Harold (Michael Margotta), who stays at Major Nelson's house because Suzie knows Jeannie's secret. Of even greater interest is the rare appearance of The Lewis and Clarke Expedition, a short-lived band that recorded one LP for Colgems Records, headed by Travis Lewis and Boomer Clarke, actually Michael Martin Murphey and Owens Castleman, Texas friends of The Monkees' Michael Nesmith, composers of the very popular Monkees recording "What Am I Doing Hangin' 'Round?" (Murphey enjoyed a huge solo success in 1975 with "Wildfire"). The song they perform is titled "Bring on the Sundown," a wild psychedelic number, particularly obscure since it wasn't featured on their lone album, issued over 13 months earlier in Nov 1967.
