Legendary TV icon Barbara Eden (I Dream of Jeannie) revisits her genie roots and gets animated in a brand-new episode of Nickelodeon's hit preschool series Shimmer and Shine.
In "The Crystal Queen," premiering Friday, Nov. 18, at 11 a.m. (ET/PT),

Samira in a magical crystal cave, Shimmer, Shine and Leah team up with
Empress Caliana to save the day. Shimmer and Shine follows the
adventures of twin genies-in-training, Shimmer and Shine, and features a
social-emotional curriculum highlighting the importance of teamwork,
resilience and overcoming obstacles. Shimmer and Shine currently ranks as the number-one preschool show in its timeslot across all TV.
