Jeannie's sister, mother, and various other friends and relatives from the good old days of Caliph Haroun al'Raschid just added to the chaotic mix. Somehow, though, across the course of the five years the show was on the air, their relationship evolved from master-slave to love between partners.

* UnbuiltTrope: Being a famous FantasticComedy, it actually showed the real problems with having something like a genie: Nelson doesn't profit from genie, not only because of his moral conviction against a genie, it also meant being hounded the government on property and money he can't report. He is hounded by his superiors simply because of his suspicious behavior, menaced by supernatural forces connected to Jeannie, and often faced with unscrupulous types who wouldn't hesitate to take advantage of an powerful being, including his own best friend Roger. It was also ''not'' a ReactionaryFantasy, since Jeannie often acted of her own accord.

* ReactionaryFantasy: Although often held up as one of the archetypal examples of the Reactionary Fantasy, some commentators have argued that it may in fact be a ''subversion''. Tony actually freed Jeannie upon being rescued in the first episode -- only to have Jeannie choose to follow him home anyway. Thus she stays with Tony because she ''wants'' to, not because she is bound to him in any way, and her "servitude" and "obedience" are an act on her part. This explain rather neatly why and how she manages to get around his orders so frequently and thoroughly...
** Barbara Eden has explained in interviews that 'Master' was only a ''ceremonial'' title and that everything Jeannie did was entirely of her free will.
** It's very clear that Jeannie is with Tony because she wants to be, not because she has to be, and that she does whatever she darn well pleases, no matter how much he protests.
