  • When Tony and Roger's space capsule lands off course in hillbilly country, the locals mistake the pair and their magical companion to be Martians. Dr. Bellows shares their belief when Jeannie blinks the astronauts to appear as invading aliens.

    "UFOhh Jeannie" is one of my favorite episodes of the series, and one that I never would miss while the show was still being aired. It contains one of the best examples of the physical comedy of Barbara Eden, who first has to dodge the unwanted advances of the hillbilly who thinks she is a Martian, then she steps on a rake which hits her in the face comedically knocking her out (looking very sexy while unconscious), then after being carried away by Tony and Roger, she drinks moonshine and becomes more of a problem than a help to the escaping astronauts, and finally does a great comedic cross-eyed faint. Everyone is perfectly within character, and logic beyond that never matters in a show like this.
