I Dream of Jeannie - The Television Show
I Dream of Jeannie is a classic television show that aired on NBC from 1965 to 1970. The show stars Barbara Eden as a genie who has been released from her bottle by astronaut Major Anthony Nelson (played by actor Larry Hagman). The show focused on how Jeannie's presence affected Major Nelson, his family and friends, and NASA's missions around the world! With her unique magical powers, Jeannie often causes more than a little mayhem and confusion in both the astronauts' lives and those around them.
The I Dream of Jeannie TV Show was created by Sidney Sheldon, who wrote the original script in 1964. It was one of the most popular shows in America during its time slot.
One of Jeannie's most unusual powers is her ability to become absolutely anyone she wants. She often used this talent for harmless fun, but when necessary Jeannie also used it against Major Nelson and his friends!
Who knew that the classic I Dream of Jeannie TV Show would have such a lasting impression on our society? The show still has an influence on modern day culture. For example, despite being released over 50 years ago, it is said to be one of the most watched shows in reruns today.
