8 mistakes in season 2 - chronological order

(11 votes)

Season 2 generally

Continuity mistake: The living room floor plan changes in season 2, but then some episodes revert back to the original season living room. It seems to bounce back and forth. There are also times when Jeannie's bottle is on the bar...but then after the cutaway it is on the desk.

The Incredible Shrinking Master - S2-E24

Continuity mistake: When Tony is next to the record player he knocks a pen down to the floor. But we saw the pen on the floor already, near the giant cat. The position of the eraser on the desk is different in shots with the cat and a real desk, not the giant mockup.

Jeannie: I would not be going out with your best friend if I were married to his best friend.

Trivia: It was absolutely prohibited (until the late 1960s) for Jeannie (Barbara Eden), to show her navel on the air, due to the strict censorship of American TV programming.

More trivia for I Dream of Jeannie

Answer: As noted elsewhere here Jeannie is speaking Farsi.

Answer: Regarding the three wishes, there was never any set-in-stone rule or belief. This appears to originate from "The Ridiculous Wishes" or "The Three Ridiculous Wishes" that is a French literary fairy tale written by Charles Perrault and was published in 1697. It sort of set the standard for genie rules that later appeared in other folk tales and then in movies and TV shows. Like vampire lore, common details can be changed by any author to suit their story.

Answer: She's speaking Persian. And there was never a 3 wish rule. When Tony freed her, he became her master, and she'd do anything for him (i.e. grant his every wish).
