A United States astronaut finds his life vastly complicated when he stumbles on to a bottle containing a female genie.
The role of the commanding general in I Dream of Jeannie (1965), first Barton MacLane (who portrayed General Peterson over 35 episodes from 1965 to 1969), and second Vinton Hayworth (who portrayed General Schaeffer over 20 episodes from 1969 to 1970), was not only the last role that each of these actors portrayed during their careers, but it was also their dying role, as each of these actors died during the time that episodes were being filmed. In the case of Hayworth as General Schaeffer, the series had already been canceled, so the commanding general role did not need to be recast a second time.
Jeannie, I never knew how much you meant to me until this happened. I'm never going to let you out of my sight again. Look, I even brought you flowers. Once I get you out of there, I'm going to take you out to dinner... the best candle lit dinner...
Many of the exterior shots of Tony's home or other areas show mountains or hills in the background. Florida, and southeast Texas where the astronauts actually lived, were as flat as a pancake, especially around Cape Kennedy and Cocoa Beach where the Nelsons are supposed to live.
Colorized versions of the first season's black and white episodes have been syndicated.
