Its Roger's birthday and Jeannie decides to grant him what he's always wanted, a wish.

Now Jeannie and Tony must try to find Roger before he takes Tony's place on the mission. Written by Brian Washington <Sargebri@att.net>

Did You Know?


Although the series often referred to authentic, real-life NASA programs and bases (such as the Mercury program and Nellis Air Force Base), the Trailblazer program that is to send Tony into space did not exist. More than 30 years later, NASA did have a Trailblazer mission - but it was to test payloads (cargo) and never carried humans. See more »


Near the end, when Gen. Peterson and Dr. Bellows arrive at his office, the nameplate says Maj. Healy. But the credits always spell it Healey. (This is common throughout the series; the prop department often spelled it Healy despite the spelling of Healey in every credit of every show..) See more »

He's just not himself today
24 November 2016 | by kevinolzakSee all my reviews

"Haven't I Seen Me Someplace Before?" begins with Roger's birthday party, Jeannie granting him one special wish as a present. Envious of Tony's upcoming mission, Roger inadvertently wishes he could trade places with Major Nelson and go himself, and it's now Tony's voice coming from Roger's mouth and vice versa. Mrs. Bellows runs into Major Nelson at Roger's apartment building, both not privy to what has happened, while the real Nelson frantically tries phoning his buddy to get him to take back the wish. Dr. Bellows himself runs into Major Nelson at Tony's house, waiting for 'Major Nelson' to return home because he doesn't have Roger's keys. He conducts an examination of 'Tony' at NASA, where the latter realizes at last what has transpired. It's interesting to see how Larry Hagman and Bill Daily try to portray one another, especially the walk.
