[post_page_title]It inspired I Dream of Jeannie[/post_page_title]
No one can deny that Bewitched was influential in many ways. However, if you thought that I Dream of Jeannie came first, or inspired Bewitched, you may be surprised to learn that the reverse is true.
Indeed, I Dream of Jeannie didn’t grace our screens until 1965, a full year after Bewitched. There are obvious similarities, from the magical wife figure, to the straight-laced husband who was devoted to her. Bewitched also outlasted I Dream of Jeannie by a few years.
