Westphall connections to I Dream of Jeanie Edit
In The Bob Newhart Show 19th Anniversary Special, the reunion special of The Bob Newhart Show, Howard Borden (Bill Daily) claimed to have had a dream in which he was astronaut Roger Healey, meaning that he actually dreamed the entirety of I Dream of Jeannie.
Non-Westphall connections Edit
Jeannie, a cartoon spin-off, ran from September 8, 1973 to August 30, 1975 for one season. It is animated, so it is not part of Westphall.
