Jeannie has to do some observing and reading to learn what that type of life means and different concepts confuse her, resulting in some uncomfortable situations for Tony.
Let me state first that I am not considering the “who is hotter” question. Look, Mrs. Kravitz could be dismissed as a harmless kook, and, worse case scenario, Samantha could have turned her into a chipmunk or something.
Thankfully, both are cute. Both Jeannie and Samantha could come down with some strange illnesses related to their powers.
She might send him to another century or put him in a torture chamber. In Tony’s case, he could have been stuck with the other Jeannie for a long time without realizing it.

Sure the odds are slim of that happening, but it could. Two relatives that could cause some serious problems were Jeannie and Samantha’s “twins.” Jeannie had a sister that looked just like her except she traded blonde hair for black and a pink harem outfit for a blue one. Hah! That meant she would have to blink a clone or add another complication like destroying the film to keep her invisibility a secret. Both women had to deal with another character who was suspicious and always on the lookout to get an “a-ha” moment.

A final life factor, which would have more repercussions in today’s social media age than in the sixties, is that Jeannie did not show up in photos. Darrin just wanted to live a normal life, despite the fact his wife, her mother, her warlock father, and everyone else in her family was of the supernatural sort.

Eventually the character of Tabitha got her own spin-off series in 1976, with Lisa Hartman in the title role. Today, I am attempting to settle the long-debated Jeannie vs Samantha question.

Not only was Jeannie more obvious but if her arms were broken, she would have been helpless, as she mentions in one episode. Magic Issues. It is so much fun to write about. Of course, we could have told you that at the beginning, but why spoil the fun?
Since Jeannie and Tony never had children, we don’t know if they would have magical powers or not. Bewitched nipped that particular creative challenge in the butt by filling us in on how Samantha and Darrin met, her revelation to him that she's a witch and his expression of continued love, with an emphasis on them living a normal life. He wanted them to live as mortals, struggling through as other people did and making things work, or having them not work, on their own. Yahoo ist Teil von Verizon Media.

What is it about those dark, twisted women that make them so appealing….Oh, wait, did we write that out loud? Samantha lives a fairly normal life. Since he was her master, she had to obey him and even if she refused, once she was in her bottle, a cap could keep her there. The two issues with their methods are that Sam’s magic was more subtle and if she turned just right, no one noticed what she was up to. Let the Classic TV face-off begin (you just have to scroll down)! Winner: Neither one of them. What's interesting is the differences between the two.
