* ''WesternAnimation/DuckTales:'' Scrooge encounters two genies, in fact. One is the evil version in the cartoon series, whose lamp was buried and lost in the end; and a good variety in ''WesternAnimation/DuckTalesTheMovieTreasureOfTheLostLamp'', who is freed.

Much of this has been lost in the modern depiction of the Genie in the Bottle. In television, they are most often within brass oil lamps, of a type that is no longer used. Most Western ''viewers'' (but not the GenreBlind characters) upon seeing this kind of lamp would immediately associate it with a genie.

genie. Many depictions show them ''living'' in the lamp, rather than being trapped there against their will.

* The Nickelodeon sitcom ''Genie in the House'' revolves around a genie living with a father and his two teenage daughters. In this universe being a genie is actually a job and he had to go to school for it. Additionally here he must grant wishes by using an incantation about said wish -- and things tend to go wrong from him phrasing things badly.

* The real TropeMaker is probably "Literature/{{Aladdin}}", which never appeared in any edition of the ''Arabian Nights'' until Antoine Galland's 18th century French translation. "Aladdin" features both a genie tied to a ring and a second and more powerful genie trapped inside a lamp, both of whom serve Aladdin.

In neither case does the genie ''live'' in the object (it would be hard to live in a ring); rather, a spell has been placed on them that when a human rubs the object, the genie is summoned from wherever it is and has to obey the object's holder.

* The ''Cataclysm'' expansion of ''VideoGame/WorldOfWarcraft'' introduces the Djinni: air elementals that are currently aligned with Deathwing. The closest thing to a "bottle" for them, however, is the "Fists of the Heavens" artifact weapon, introduced in ''Legion''.

* ''WesternAnimation/TheRealGhostbusters'' episode "Janine's Genie". After busting ghosts, with the help of Janine, in an antique store, the man can't pay with money so he let the ghostbusters take whatever relic they want. Janine took the typical genie lamp and it turns out it does had a Genie on it. The genie was from the evil variety and, though he does not twists Janine's wishes (be the boss of the Ghostbusters and have Egon in love with her) he does uses the wishes to open a portal to his home dimension and bring back all kinds of spirits.

* The Golden Age version of GreenLantern is actually this; a man who finds a magical lantern with a genie in it that gives him superpowers. Of course, this fantasy idea was completely abandon for the sci-fi version we all know.
