Captain Tony Nelson is an astronaut. While on a mission, he discovered a mysterious bottle. Opening it, he released Jeannie (a Genie) who was so overjoyed at her release she promised to serve Captain Nelson. Nelson is unsure what to make of Jeannie, especially given that his work is highly secret and his superiors tend to keep a close eye on him.Written by

No one keeps this impish, delightful genie bottled up - she's back for another season. Barbara Eden stars as the genial genie with Larry Hagman in the role of her harassed, latter day Aladdin. See more »
In one episode, Tony and Roger are working on training a chimp, that was named "Sam". This was seen as a slap at the show Bewitched (1964), as if they were making fun of the name, Samantha, the producers accused "Jeannie" of stealing some of their ideas. See more »
In Season 1, Episode 23, It is established that genies cannot be photographed. In Season 4, Episode 19, Jeannie's picture appears on Page 1 of a newspaper. In Season 5, Episode 11, for the wedding, Jeannie again cannot be photographed. See more »
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!
