Jeannie's sister, otherwise known as Jeannie II, is Jeannie's jealous older sister. She is very wicked and is determined to have Anthony Nelson to herself, no matter what lengths she must go to. 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. With way too much time on her hands to think up schemes she can almost always pull one over on her gullible sister, who loves her despite their differences and tolerates her antics because she feels sorry for her. Her vanity makes her susceptible to flattery, and her impatience and short temper make her prone to careless mistakes. Like all genies, she is claustrophobic and terrified of being locked up.
- 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.
- The sisters share a name because their mother was an efficiency expert, a fact Jeannie II deeply resents.
- She is a big eater, especially fond of expensive cuts of steak and flaming desserts.
- 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.
