Can anyone remember the name of a fantasy-comedy show where a so-called "Genie" with brown possibly curly hair and a mustache lives with a family? I remember this one episode where this "Genie" turned a grumpy, mean coach back into a kid and the family's football son into an adult to teach him a lesson temporarily, much to the mother's protest and objection when she enters the room.

I remember he lived with a mom, dad, a son, and possibly a daughter. And he was an adult with brown curly hair and a mustache.

  • I was talking about a live action fantasy-comedy show involving such a person

  • If you follow the link, there's lots to choose from.

  • Probably Genie in the House, from the page Valorum has linked for you? Closest fit on there. If it's not... well, plenty of possibilities to check out.

This sounds like the show You Wish. See the photo below for the Genie and the family.

I can't find the exact episode you are referring to, but this episode guide lists the guest role of football player in episode 10, "Welcome to the Dollhouse".

Genie and family
