After the worldwide success of the television show Bewitched, I Dream of Jeannie was created. Thankfully it took off just as they had hoped for and the show ran for 5 years from 1965 to 1970. The show was about an astronaut who quite literally had a ‘Jeannie’ in a Bottle.
Fans of the show know the basic premise, but we are going to show you some things you may not have known. Everyone in the show hated one specific episode. This episode was so awful that it eventually led to the show being canceled. Read on to find out which episode it was, learn some little-known facts about the show and find out what the cast is up to today!
Hiding The Baby Bump
When you think of the show “I Dream of Jeannie” You automatically think of Jeannie’s little harem costume. While she was known for that signature outfit, you may not remember that Barbara Eden, who played the role of Jeannie, was actually completely clothed during the first 10 episodes of the show.
The reason why she was covered up for the first few episodes was that Barbara was pregnant! The writers decided to improvise. Instead of canceling the show altogether, they simply covered her up during those first few episodes. And thankfully they did so since the show became an instant classic.
