"I'm not sure about every episode, but there are cuts in the second season.
"My Master The Rainmaker" - What happened to the footage of all the rain in Alabama after Jeannie blinked and turned it into a lake?
There are also some cuts in "The Mod Party" - the ones I noticed were after Dr. Bellows drove Tony & Roger into the woods to go hunting. Several lines of dialogue were cut, as well as a few scenes where they were trying to set up the tent.
Season Two here we go, Master!

Jeannie is uncorked for a second season on DVD!

"The 1966 season of I DREAM OF JEANNIE features some of the best storylines, building on the relationship of Major Tony Nelson (Larry Hagman) and his faithful Jeannie (Barbara Eden). Barbara Eden's performance as Jeannie is a little more comical in the second year, whilst adding a lot of underlining pathos and heart to the character.
The supporting roles of Roger Healey (Bill Daily) and Doctor Bellows (Hayden Rorke) were also expanded, and we get to see more of Bellows' wife Amanda (Emmaline Henry).
This season was the first to be filmed in colour. You'll notice in the earlier episodes that Barbara Eden's makeup is very pronounced and dark (probably because the makeup artists were still applying Jeannie's makeup as originally designed for the grayscale tones of b&w). The addition of colour added a lot to the magic and scope of the show. Just like it's sister sitcom "Bewitched", the possibilities were endless, and the world of Jeannie is nicely-developed in this second year.
COMPLETE EPISODE LISTING:
"Happy Anniversary" - Exactly one year after corking her bottle, Major Nelson is roped into recreating the happy event when Jeannie wants to celebrate their anniversary. Their party is crashed by the evil Blue Djinn (Michael Ansara).

"Who Needs a Green-Eyed Genie?" - Jealousy once again takes hold of Jeannie when she suspects Tony of being with another woman.

Loved it then, love it even more now

"I grew up watching 'I Dream of Jeannie' in the 70's and had the fondest memories of it. When I found out the DVD's were out, I immediately ordered it for my kids 9 yrs, 6 yrs, and 2 yrs. THEY LOVE IT. We would watch it together and enjoy it so much. As a child, I couldn't fully appreciate the writing and comic timing but as an adult, I see how great the show really was. Both my husband and I would laugh out loud watching it all over again. Major Anthony Nelson and Major Roger Healy had the funniest lines and worked so well together. Jeannie is as beautiful as I remember and gives off the impression of being all powerful, yet still so naive and sweet.
The kids would imitate Jeannie's blinking pose and I would laugh because that's what I used to do around the house."
Second season of Jeannie even more fun!

"If you grew up watching Jeannie, you'll love having the entire set on DVD. I can finally see all the episodes in order, with no cuts in the scenes to fit all the commercials in. If you've never seen this show, I definitely reccomend it. Major Tony Nelson of NASA lands on a beach by accident and finds a bottle with a beautiful 'Jeannie' in it. Jeannie falls in love with him (and he with her,though he won't admit until much later), and in each episode unintentionally wreaks havoc on his well-ordered life, by trying to help. Played to ditzy,lovable perfection by the gorgeous Barbara Eden,with Larry Hagman of 'J.R Ewing' fame as Tony. It's fun to see Hagman in a character so completely different from J.R. The supporting roles of Major Healy, Doctor Bellows and his wife, and the others are all really well done,too."
