From The TV IV
Jeannie is an animated version of the sitcom I Dream of Jeannie. It aired Saturday mornings on CBS.
In this animated spinoff, produced by Hanna-Barbera Productions in association with Screen Gems, Jeannie is a teenage genie in this version and her master is Center City High student Corry Anders. Corry discovers the bottle in which Jeannie is encased while wiping out during surfing. He opens the bottle and releases Jeannie and her apprentice sidekick Babu. The two genies use their powers to get Corry and his pal Henry in and out of trouble.
Jeannie became a segment of the 1977 syndicated package Fred Flintstone and Friends. Jeannie herself (with Babu) also appeared in an episode of The New Scooby-Doo Movies. She was supposed to be a member of the Scooby Doobies on Scooby's All-Star Laff-a-Lympics, but rights issues with Columbia Pictures Television (the successor-in-interest to Screen Gems, which originally co-produced Jeannie) prevented the appearance. Babu was made her substitute as a result as he was strictly a Hanna-Barbera-created property.
Due to this show's ties to I Dream of Jeannie, Sony Pictures Television owns and distributes the series, with its copyright held by SPT's animation division Adelaide Productions.
