Among more-than-vaguely misogynistic shows about genies and masters and NASA and hijinks ensuing, I Dream of Jeannie is most assuredly the best. Jeannie, which aired on NBC for five seasons between 1965-1970, starred the recently deceased Larry Hagman as hapless Major Nelson and Barbara Eden as the titular genie, Jeannie. They really knew what they were doing in the 1960s, didn’t they? Anyway, the show is knowingly campy, and therefore not very good, but Hagman was a likable goof and Eden a knockout babe.
In honor of Hagman (and Eden’s everything), today’s GIFs of the Week is dedicated to I Dream of Jeannie.
