Tony and Jeannie didn't get married until the last season of the show, so, no, Jeannie was, by and large, not a housewife.

Mary or Rhoda or Phyllis or Sue Ann?
I like them all and don't have a strong preference, but it used to bug me when I was younger how on the MTM Show everybody acted like Rhoda was such an undesirable schlub, because you could tell she was really pretty. When she got her own show they stopped trying to de-glamorize her and let Brenda be the schlub.

And Peel and 99 are both spies. What does occupation have to do with it?

Not strictly, no. But more or less that's the role she served in Tony's life.

Wow, I never thought about 99 versus Emma Peel. That's like an irresistible force meeting an irresistible force.
So you couldn't say which one is more a-Peel-ing, then?

I check spoonerisms now and then just 'cause I do.

"Minger or Gary-Anne?"

I'm not sure which is the least complementary name for a female.

Mary over Rhoda, and Sue Ann over Phyllis. Or at least Betty White. Betty White rocks.

Mary, but Dick Van Dyke-era Mary. GOD she was hot then!!

Oh, and, Wilma. Betty forever carries the stigma of Rosie O'Donnel in my mind.

I disagree. Jeannie was more of a live-in girlfriend, a distinction which was significant in the 1960s. I Dream was able to play some of its comedy off of the women's lib movement in ways that Bewitched never possibly could.

I was tempted to reply to that question with "Laura Petrie" myself.

Then there's Julie Newmar as Rhoda the robot in My Living Doll. There, the protagonist -- despite being a noted womanizer -- was panicked by what his neighbors would think of him having a gorgeous woman living with him out of wedlock, so he insisted that his sister move in with them as a chaperone. Although there was nothing remotely liberated about Rhoda; she was a completely passive, obedient mechanism, and it was clearly shown (insofar as it could be made clear with '60s TV censorship) that she had no nudity taboo and would unhesitatingly take off her clothes -- or do anything else -- if ordered to. From the episodes I've seen (only the first two or three, since it wasn't a very good show), it wasn't clear to me at all why the womanizing lead was so reluctant to take advantage of that, other than that broadcast standards required it.

But if we include Newmar's Rhoda in the competition, I don't think Jeannie or Samantha would fare very well.

Morticia, by a huge margin. (As long as it's Carolyn Jones. Never much cared for Anjelica Huston's version.)

Morticia won by a landslide elsewhere as well, although Lily did have her ardent admirers!
