I Dream of Jeannie (1965)

28 mistakes

Genres: Comedy, Family, Fantasy

Invisible House For Sale - S4-E16

Continuity mistake: Throughout this episode, the coat rack behind Major Nelson's front door alternates between having a coat of arms decoration in the middle or nothing in the middle. It seems this episode was filmed while a set change was taking place, since previous episodes feature a hand holding a bell as the center decoration for the coat rack and following episodes feature the coat of arms decoration.

My Master, the Weakling - S3-E5

Other mistake: About 3 minutes into the show, Don Rickles' character goes around a corner to get some equipment but you can see his left arm at the corner while he's waiting for his spot to come back into the scene.

How To Marry an Astronaut - S4-E10

Visible crew/equipment: When Jeannie is swinging outside on Major Nelson's patio, the top of the soundstage and the ropes holding up the backdrop are visible when the camera switches to a low angle. A moment later, it is visible again, but only for a second.

The Incredible Shrinking Master - S2-E24

Continuity mistake: When Tony is down to mouse-size, he bounces against his full-size tennis racket and skews the strings. He hides, and when the cat walks in front of the racket, the strings are straightened.

Ride 'Em Astronaut - S4-E15

Audio problem: While Jeannie and Roger are talking in the grocery store, the food cans in Roger's hands hit each other with a hollow thud, revealing that they're both empty.

Operation: First Couple on the Moon - S3-E25

Continuity mistake: Tony goes from wearing a casual jacket to wearing his NASA uniform in the middle of a conversation with Jeannie.

My Sister, the Homemaker - S5-E12

Visible crew/equipment: At the beginning of the episode, Jeannie is talking on the phone by the stairs and her sister is hiding behind the banister. Her sister stands up for a moment and shows her full face, revealing that it is actually Barbara Eden's stand-in wearing the green costume.

The Wedding - S5-E11

Plot hole: In the episode "There Goes the Bride," Haji warns Jeannie that she will lose her powers if she marries Tony. Yet, she marries him in this episode and does not lose her powers.

The Wedding - S5-E11

Plot hole: As Jeannie is walking down the aisle with Dr. Bellows, she sees the first photographer about to take a photo. A second before the photo is snapped, she blinks in the mannequin, which can be photographed. Later, though, when Jeannie and Tony are watching the film of the wedding, the mannequin is not visible, either. In the film, the photographer can be seen snapping that first photo (at this point, Dr. Bellows is walking down the aisle with the mannequin), but the film still shows Dr. Bellows walking down the aisle alone.

Djinn, Djinn, the Pied Piper - S5-E2

Continuity mistake: When they are in the park, Roger is sent to the phone booth to call Jeannie, but ends up having a conversation with the operator. When Dr. Bellows pulls up, the phone booth is empty. Yet, a few minutes later, Roger is shown still in the phone booth. Because he mentions the original reason for his call, it is clear that this is supposed to be the same conversation.

Invisible House For Sale - S4-E16

Plot hole: When Roger arrives at 1020 Palm Drive, he thinks Major Nelson's house is gone, but he soon discovers the house is still there, but invisible. He opens the door to enter and closes the door behind himself. Yet, from inside the closed house, Roger is able to hold a normal conversation with Mr. Winkler, who is on the street. The window was not open, since Roger opens the invisible window to climb out of the house.

Invisible House For Sale - S4-E16

Revealing mistake: At the beginning of this episode, Major Nelson is about to prune a tree branch in the front yard, but Jeannie blinks it down before he can cut it. The wire that was holding up the branch is visible just above Major Nelson's head.

How To Marry an Astronaut - S4-E10

Continuity mistake: The final scene of this episode is in Major Nelson's living room. Just after Jeannie blinks in the invisible minister, there is a quick shot of Major Nelson turning his head, but the background is an office at NASA, with green paint and paneling. Major Nelson's home has paneling but no green paint.

There Goes the Bride - S2-E27

Continuity mistake: At the same instant Jeannie blinks herself into a bridal gown, the drawer in the table in the foreground pops open and remains open.

Around the Moon in 80 Blinks - S4-E23

Continuity mistake: When Dr. Bellows is trying to open Major Nelson's garage door, Major Nelson pulls it closed from the inside and Dr. Bellows ends up on the ground with the large end (front part) of his tie stuck under the garage door. The small end of his tie is not caught under the door, since it is visible beneath him. From inside the garage, Major Nelson uses an ax to sever the tie. When Dr. Bellows is shown again, though, both the large end and small end of his tie have been cut off.

Djinn and Water - S1-E10

Continuity mistake: Jeannie's great grandfather Bilejk says, "The last time you summoned me to help someone was 1500 years ago." This cannot be possible because she was trapped in her bottle for 2000 years before she was freed by Tony in the first episode.

My Master the Magician - S1-E29

Visible crew/equipment: At the end when Major Nelson is in the magic show, and Jeannie makes him float in the air, you can blatantly see the bar on the levitation device stretching from Major Nelson and disappearing into the curtain.

Ride 'Em Astronaut - S4-E15

Continuity mistake: Akins is holding his hat with both hands when he's introduced to Jeannie. A subsequent close-up shows him wearing it. The very next shot shows him holding it again.

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.
