About Mr. Preever
When Harry Huggins, an IRS agent who was to audit Tony, enlists Professer Preever, a known fine art expert, to distinguish the value of the works of art which Jeannie blinked for Tony, he then calls to see Dr. Bellows, who shows him a stack of reports on Tony's strange activities, but refuses to believe Tony is, in addition to being deliquent in paying his taxes, an international smuggler which Huggings suspects Tony of being. When Jeannie is able to thwart Huggins's attempt to nab Tony for neither reason by changing the works of art, which included Michaelangelo and Renoir paintings, and a Ming vase into imitations, (with the subject in the Mona Lisa painting sporting a mustache!) and the gold coins she had blinked into chocolate!
When Preever inspects the Michaelangelo sculpture and sees a sixth finger, which Jeannie blinked on it, he becomes upset with Huggins, as he tells him, "This some sort of practical joke? You bring me all the way here and show me a collection of junk? I don't understand!!"
