  • Notes

    • This was the first episode of the series written by Sidney Sheldon under one of three pseudonyms. In early 1967, he decided his name was featured on the show too much (as creator, producer, writer, and copyright owner), and registered three aliases with the Writer's Guild so that he wouldn't have to see his name on screen so often. Thus, "Allan Devon" was the first of his "alter-egos" to write a script for the series.

    • The second of three appearances of Haji.

    • As was later revealed in the reunion movies, Tony and Jeannie did have a son named T.J. during the years between the end of the series and the films. However, they never did have a daughter. Also, just as predicted, T.J. never did inherit his mother's powers.

    • One of the few episodes directed by Larry Hagman.
