Trivia

Robert Conrad tested for the role of Major Tony Nelson, and was seriously considered, as was Darren McGavin. Actors Gary Collins and Jack Warden. They screen tested together as Tony and Dr. Bellows. See more »

Goofs

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 »

Quotes

Col. Alfred E. Bellows, MD: You may be an expert in financial matters, Mr. Huggins, but I happen to be an expert in Major Anthony Nelson.

User Reviews

one of the best sitcoms ever
14 September 2002 | by ufocskaSee all my reviews

In the world of the 50s and 60s silly sitcoms, this is an except, a colorful and exciting show. Barbara Eden is very good at her role, Larry Hagman is better actor here than in "Dallas" or another serieses. The best is Bill Daily's Maj. Healey, but I like the late Hayden Rorke's suspicious Dr. Bellows too. When I saw the series' episodes first time I got a laughing-stock. It is fantastic! The first and second seasons are perfect, the third and fourth are good, but the fifth is a silly, American family sitcom. After Jeannie marries her master, the series goes wrong. But except for those 20 episodes, the whole series is my favorite sitcom of all times!
