Oh, the innocent days when the sexiest thing on television was Barbara Eden's hidden navel! In the classic 1960s sitcom I Dream of Jeannie, an astronaut stranded on a desert island discovered a bottle containing a genie--a shapely blond genie in scarves and diaphanous pantaloons. He sets her free, but she follows him back to Cocoa Beach, Florida, where her efforts to serve him only cause mischief and threaten his career in the space program. I Dream of Jeannie depicted the male fantasy of a beautiful but subservient girl--but this subservient girl was all-powerful and oddly willful in her attempts to serve. It all worked because of the leads: Barbara Eden and Larry Hagman went on to lengthy careers (later starring in Harper Valley PTA and Dallas, respectively), but arguably never matched the chemistry they had as Jeannie and Captain (soon to be Major) Tony Nelson. Jeannie, though naive and eager to please, always had Eden's intelligence and steely resolve lurking under her bubbly blonde surface, while Hagman projected a genuine decency that somehow made the potentially salacious situation seem innocent.

Still, the show would never have been more than a knockoff of the similar Bewitched (basically, the battle of the sexes with a magic twist) if Tony's secret hadn't been discovered mid-season by his best friend, fellow astronaut Roger (the wonderful Bill Daily). Unburdened by the need for decency, Roger could be the show's insatiable id, eager to use Jeannie for no end of self-serving purposes. Meanwhile, psychiatrist Dr. Bellows (Hayden Rorke) served as the show's perpetually flabbergasted superego, constantly demanding a rational explanation for all the madcap events around him. All at once the show's storylines--which had previously been dominated by Jeannie's desire for marriage--could wander in any daffy direction the writers chose. The result was deeply silly and utterly charming.

Synopsis
When astronaut Captain Tony Nelson, stranded on a desert island, released the bubbly blond Jeannie from her bottle, a television classic was born. This set contains the entire 30 episodes of the first series of Sidney Sheldon's 1960s hit in brilliant remastered colour.

Depends how old they are surely. This has a certificate of 12 according to the website so Hannah Montana may be more appropriate for younger ones?

Strange social judgment to make from one post though

Voted hot on deal as used to love thsi series when younger (lets face it who wouldn;t want a woman like that?!!)

Yeah, i haven't exactly forbid them from watching la femme cyrus, its there its just that when they flick through the channels they tend to see her chirpy little face and keep on going. now 'phineas & ferb' is a different matter!

The little one is under 12 (shes 9 to be precise), but we tend to watch DVDs with them the first time through (it is worth remembering that in cinema terms the 12 certificate would be a 12a which would mean she would be allowed entrance with a parent).

i think its also worth bearing in mind that given that virtually any primary school library will have a copy of 'mummy laid an egg' that its unlikely that a 50 year old light comedy TV show is going to be shattering anyone's innocence any time soon.

Madonnaproject made some pretty astute social judgment if you ask me, pretty much what you'd expect from someone with a shin-chan avatar!

Please don't interpret this post as hostile, its certainly not aimed in that spirit!

I have young siblings. I also know they sit on their computers which are internet connected. hanna montanna the show itself is very tame, however if they started googling miley cyrus, they would probably come across the young wh0re's facebook shower pictures and such. Can't have them looking at that.....smut. So I try to involve them in other stuff....like the ninja turtles.

P.E : Its not a "social judgement". It's just my opinion, nothing else. I think you've become too involved with my post.

As for shin chan? Well....that stuff is not appropriate for anyone. But its fun to watch!

I enjoyed this series the few times i have seen it- got the film recorded off the telly from when i was younger lol...and some of the stuff on telly nowadays for kids is either a) smutty, b) patronising c) stupid i.e. teaches them to be stupid and kills brain cells...i tihnk that and i only 23 lol...my little borther watches iCarly- he gets me rather concerned lol

but this is a funny show...never really compared it to bewitched before but i guess it is pretty smiliar
