The Roger Healy character was supposed to be an Army officer, but in the 1960's all astronauts had to be highly qualified pilots with long experience in high-performance jet aircraft. The Army did not (and does not) have any such aircraft, so all astronauts came from the Air Force, Navy, or Marine Corps. In addition, according to Healy's uniform insignia, he was not even in Army aviation; he was in the Corps of Engineers. See more »
[Opening Narration-episodes 1.2 through 1.8]
Once upon a time, in a mythical place called Cape Kennedy, an astronaut named Tony Nelson went up on a space mission. The missile went up, but something went wrong and they had to bring it down.

I Dream of Jeannie (1965) TV series is something of every man's dreams; to have their cake and eat it too. Which is a beautiful knockout blonde female like Jeannie and anything else desired. This is really a timeless masterpiece. The problem with Nelson is he seemed too wrapped up in his astronaut duties/career that he seem to take for granted the appealing female Genie. I bet a lot of guys watching the show would had no problem or hesitation in wanting Jeannie for themselves. When it came to Jeannie, Nelson made me feel like I wish I could go up to him and POW right in the arm for being so blind to her. It's funny but I didn't realize until now, after all these years, that the name Jeannie matches what she was... which is a Genie. Barbara Eden will always be the Genie of our dreams!
