Who do not love his childhood memories? Of course we all love our childhood memories. Everybody has their own stories, games, friends, cartoon characters, T.V. shows through which they relate their memories. I have my own. When I was in school we, I, my sister and brother were damn fan of “I Dream of Jeannie”. 

There were not many TV shows for kids those days. One that my brother was used to watch after completing his home work was “Superman”, but I didn’t like Superman character much. My brother was a huge fan of Superman and collected a variety of stuff with Superman pictures.  I and my sister wait for another TV show at night and that was “I Dream of jeannie”. It was not especially for children but was good show for all ages.

If an old TV show I could bring back would be of course “I Dream of Jeannie”. It was story of an astronaut named Captain Tony Nelson and a genie named Jeannie. Two other interesting characters were Captain Roger and Colonel Alfred. Captain Roger was friend of Captain Tony Nelson and Colonel Alfred was boss of Captain Tony Nelson.

I Dream of Jeannie

Story starts with a plane crash and astronaut Captain Tony landed on a deserted island where he rescues a genie named Jeannie from a bottle. Jeannie becomes slave of her rescuer Captain Tony and gradually falls in love with him. In the show Jeannie uses her magic all the time due to which Tony faces a lot of problems that creates funny situations. At the end of the story Jeannie got married with her master Tony.

Originally it was an American TV show and aired there from 1965 to 1970. But in India it telecast in late 80s or early 90s. That was a great TV show and best thing it was dubbed in Hindi language, our mother tongue. Sometimes I and my sister still recite dialogues of that show to our close ones.
