I Dream of Jeannie

Trivia: The Screen Gems sets of I Dream of Jeannie and Bewitched were right next to each other at the studio, and many of the actual sets and props were shared between the two shows. Both shows also shared Dick Albain, the Special Effects expert, who worked on the two shows for quite awhile.

Trivia: While Tony Nelson and Roger Heely are both astronauts, Tony is first an Air Force captain, then a major. Same thing for Roger, but he was a major in the U. S. Army Corp of Engineers. As far as I could tell, he was the only Army officer on the base full of Airmen.

Trivia: Listen to the music in the background when Roger is trying to calm the baby. The same melody was used throughout "Bewitched" in scenes involving Tabitha. (00:13:40)

More quotes from 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).
