Jeannie, Jr.
Jimmy Jarratt ...
Judy Rockley ...


Tony reads in a book that when a genie marries her master they instantly lose their powers and become mortal, prompting Tony to propose. Jeannie then calls for Haji to show her and Roger what her life would be like after they marry and they see that Tony has been promoted to colonel. However, a little later Roger asks Haji to show Jeannie what would happen if she and Tony were to have children. They then see that they have a son and a daughter and while the son, Tony Jr., is normal, but their daughter, Jeannie Jr. winds up inheriting her mother's powers. She might also use them at a very inopportune time; when the Dr. and Mrs. Bellows drop by for a surprise visit. Will Jeannie go through with the marriage or will they live out the future as foretold?

Did You Know?


As was later revealed in the reunion films, Jeannie and Tony did have a son that they would name Tony Jr. (TJ for short). However, they never did have the daughter also foretold by Haji. See more »


Jeanie's sister has been said to have married many times, and she still has powers. Therefore, marrying a mortal couldn't possibly make Jeanie loose her powers. Also, as it was seen in the final season, Jeannie still had her powers even after marrying Tony. See more »
