I Dream of Jeannie ran for five seasons, and over the course of the series’ 139 episodes, the 2000-year-old, green-blooded Jeannie created a steady-stream of misunderstandings and all other manner of chaos for Major Nelson.
One of the show’s most popular sets was that of the inside of Jeannie’s true home — her bottle. In reality, instead of this bottle being an exotic antique, its origins were much more humble — and much more local. It was, in fact, a cleverly-painted Jim Bean decanter, circa 1964.
