How to Be a Fantastic Mother - Self-help book allegedly
written by NASA astronaut, Major Anthony Nelson (Larry Hagman)
on the sitcom I DREAM OF JEANNIE/NBC/1965-70.
Actually, the book was written by a beautiful
blond genie named Jeannie (Barbara Eden) as a loving gift to her
"Master." She got a copy of her manuscript published by
Woodhouse Publishers, a New York firm.
Unfortunately, by giving Tony credit for writing
the book, it brought his quiet bachelor life under hectic
scrutiny by the media and by his supervisors at NASA. Comedy
ensued as Tony tried to live up to the title of the book.
