  • After Amanda Bellows insists on wanting a duplicate made of Jeannie's bottle, Dr. Bellows accidentally swipes the bottle (with Jeannie inside) prompting Tony and Roger to go on a madcap recovery mission.moreless

    I have lots of fond memories of this particular episode from my childhood. The sequence where Major Nelson and Major Healy have to break and enter the Bellows home to retrieve Jeannie has one great gag after another. Larry Hagman and Bill Dailey play off each other beautifully in this episode providing many laugh out loud situations in their clumsy attempts to recover Jeannie's bottle. In fact, their coming timing and natural ability to perform slapstick bits hearkens back to the great comic duos of the 1930s and 1940s. That's one of the great pleasures of "I Dream of Jeannie" - that many of the comical situations have an Abbott and Costello or Laurel and Hardy feel to them.moreless

Trivia, Notes, Quotes and Allusions

FILTER BY TYPE

  • TRIVIA (4)

    • In current prints of this episode, most of the music, sound effects and laugh track were "recreated", due to the fact that a master negative copy without the orginals was used.

    • Tony is worried that Amanda might open the bottle and thus will control Jeannie, but at the end of the episode after Roger opens the bottle, Jeannie remains under Tony's control.

    • Major Goof: The episode opens on a Sunday morning with Tony reading his newspaper, after Dr. Bellows and his wife Amanda visit with Tony he and Jeannie go to sleep and when they wake up it's Monday morning.

    • A minor goof: In a nighttime scene where the Bellowses return home early, Dr. Bellows leaves the headlights on in his car after shutting off the engine. Even if the car were a Cadillac, it's unlikely a 1966-1967 era car would have been equipped with Twilight Sentinel – a device that, after turning off the engine, automatically shuts off the headlights after a pre-set time, usually up to two minutes.
