Barbara Eden Guest Stars On Nickelodeon’s Shimmer and Shine


While most of us are only old enough to remember the syndicated reruns, NBC’s 1970 sitcom I Dream of Jeannie was one of TV’s classics. Barbara Eden played the role of a 2000 year-old genie who got into a number of adventures with her master and eventual husband Major Nelson.

Nickelodeon has just announced that Eden will be become a genie once again in their hit cartoon Shimmer and Shine. Barbara will be the voice of Empress Caliana, a quirky genie empress and mentor to Samira, the genie princess. The episode, “The Crystal Queen” will air Friday, November 18 at 11am (ET).
