Jeannie's sister, otherwise known as Jeannie II, is Jeannie's jealous twin sister. She is very wicked and is determined to have Anthony Nelson to herself, no matter what lengths she must go to. Although she is Jeannie's twin, she has dark hair and wears a green genie outfit instead of a pink one like Jeannie. Her master is the polar opposite of Major Nelson and instead confines her to her bottle rather than giving her free reign like Tony gives Jeannie, possibly because of her malicious behavior.
Jeannie's sister is first introduced in the third season. She shows up after Jeannie invites her as Jeannie has not seen her sister in a while and misses her. However, this proves to be a nearly fatal mistake for Jeannie when her sister traps her in her bottle and attempts to steal Major Nelson. Although Jeannie's sister has a different accent, Tony usually fails to notice that he is with the wrong genie, although he does notice that "Jeannie"'s behavior has changed.
Jeannie II has no regard for the lives of mortals but she adores their nightlife and spends her free time blinking from one jet-set location to another. She is incredibly vain and self assured, though she has a few weaknesses that usually foil her plans- her vanity makes her susceptible to flattery, and her impatience and short temper make her prone to careless mistakes. Unlike Jeannie, she has never been freed and is bound to follow the wishes of her master. Like all genies, she is claustrophobic and terrified of being locked up.
Her masters treat her poorly, keeping her locked her up in her bottle when they aren't boring her with unimaginative wishes. With way too much time on her hands to think up schemes she can almost always pull one over on her gullible little sister, who loves her despite their differences and tolerates her antics because she feels sorry for her. Although they are often referred to as twins, she is Jeannie's older sister, with enough of an age gap that she remembers her sister's birth, though she got the month wrong.
Nothing is known about how she became a genie but according to Jeannie, she was the worst cook in the whole middle east when she was human. She has been married 47 times, not including her brief engagement to Roger Healey.
- Jeannie's sister also had a bottle that appeared only once in the entire show. It and the other genie bottles were Jim Beam alcohol bottles that were repainted and slightly remodeled to match the atmosphere of the show.
