Jeannie

Show Summary

This was an animated CBS show based on "I Dream Of Jeannie". It aired Saturday mornings and had 16 episodes.

Corey, an average California teenager, finds an unusual-looking bottle on the beach while surfing. He opens it, and a beautiful genie named Jeannie emerges. Her bumbling, corpulent sidekick, 'junior genie' Babu also emerges, and the two become Corey's servants. Most of the show's plots found Corey trying to live a normal teenager's life, while keeping the genies' identities secret, and teaming up with Jeannie to repair the damages caused by Babu's bungling. This show came out at the height of the so-called "teen cartoon" era. Several shows that had teenagers as the central characters all made their debuts around this time and this show was no exception. The premise of this show was pretty much an update of the original I Dream of Jeannie, except that this time Jeannie is, more or less, a teenager as is her master and his best bud, not adult astronauts as in the original series.

  • Nice show.

    8.0
    This show is another one of those Hanna Barbera shows: done nicely. But to me, it was a bit on the generic side, but at least the writing is well done. The characters are not what you expect from "I Dream of Jeanie", but the inspiration is from that show, so looking for the same characters from the original is not too useful, as Jeannie is a different person from the real one, but they still makes mistakes every now and then, but the carelessness is done by her apprentice Babu in the cartoon instead.



    One thing I like about this show is the fact that I like genies, so that is a plus for me. Thanks for reading!moreless
