  • Major Nelson is forced to participate in an Air Force boxing match when Colonel Bellows mistakes Tony for an amateur boxer. Tony almost gets pummeled in the ring until Jeannie finally blinks him to a one-punch victory.

    This was one of my favorite episodes growing up with lots of great slapstick antics from Major Nelson. It's really amazing to see just how terrific Larry Hagman was with executing slapstick stunts. The boxing fight sequence is one of the great finales of this long running series. You really feel his pain in the ring and think he's going to get his daylights clobbered until, finally, Jeannie comes to Tony's rescue. There's some great casting choices in this one as well, particularly the great character actor of the 1940s "Slapsie" Maxie Rosenbloom. This is one of those episodes that just keeps getting better with repeat viewings.
