This episode was originally designed as a lead-in for the zany variety series Rowan and Martin's Laugh-In, which I Dream of Jeannie preceded on NBC's Monday-night lineup during the 1968-69 season. Thanks to her zany behavior, Jeannie (Barbara Eden) is invited to appear as a guest on Laugh-In, whereupon Roger (Bill Daily) appoints himself as her agent. Appearing in cameo roles as themselves are Laugh-In regulars Judy Carne, Arte Johnson and Gary Owens, as well as the series' producer George H. Schlatter. (Trivia note: As originally conceived, the Laugh-In installment which followed this episode on February 24, 1969, was to have included a production number in which Barbara Eden's navel would make its first network TV appearance; alas, this gag was scuttled, reportedly at the insistence of the I Dream of Jeannie production staff!)
