I always thought Tony was nuts for not wanting her the first few years of the show. I remember one episode where he was out on a date with a pretty woman but nowhere near as smokin' as Jeannie. Even at age 11, I thought "What is he doing with this one when he's got Jeannie at home waiting for him?".
I remember thinking the same thing!
I wonder how much of that came from fear of censorship on the part of the writers? They were treading on pretty new territory for 1960's network TV.
