Classic TV fans everywhere had their wishes granted last Saturday when Barbara Eden once again became television’s favorite genie.

The actress went on stage at the Life Ball in Vienna docked in her costume from “I Dream of Jeannie,” where she was joined on stage by President Bill Clinton. Eden is now 78 and the series (which co-starred the recently deceased Larry Hagman) hasn’t been on the air since 1970.

Needless to say, Clinton seemed pretty happy to see her resume her iconic role, at least for a night.
