I Dream of Jeannie 45th Anniversary, World Record Attempts, and More!

July 30, 2010 Posted by D*C Newsletter Administrator

 
Join Us as We Celebrate the 45th Anniversary of I Dream of Jeannie with
Larry Hagman, Barbara Eden, and Bill Daily

With a nod of her head and a blink of her eyes, Jeannie (Barbara Eden) will whisk you into her magical world! This mischievous genie feels only unabashed exuberance for using her magical powers, granting her master’s every wish – even when he doesn’t wish it. And what a master! Astronaut Tony Nelson (Larry Hagman), in a state of perpetual befuddlement over his wish-granting sprite, along with his best buddy, the equally befuddled Roger Healy (Bill Daily), try to hide Jeannie and her mad-cap antics from their peers and superiors, particularly the ever-suspicious shrink, Dr. Alfred Bellows!

Join other fans from all over the world as we celebrate the joy and laughter I Dream of Jeannie has brought to us over the last forty-five years! Check your Pocket Program at the show for panel times, autograph sessions, and photo opportunities.

Super Heroes, and Star Trek, and Steampunk, Oh My!

Look up in the air… it’s a bird… it’s a plane… no! It’s a super hero changing history while boldly going where no one else has gone and breaking world records along the way!

Last year, 903 of you came out and helped us make it into the Record Holder’s Republic book for the largest number of people dancing to Thriller!

It was so much fun we decided to give it another THREE tries! And no, it is not for the record number of Stormtroopers we can fit into an elevator! Although… just kidding!
