Upon reentry, his capsule splashed down near a tropical desert island in the South Pacific where he found an ancient bottle on the beach. When he pulled on the stopper, out popped a beautiful female genie dressed in a harem costume. Her name was Jeannie. At first, Tony thought he was suffering from hallucinations, but soon realized otherwise.

TRIVIA NOTE: Stardust was also the name of a spacecraft (fashioned after the design of the NASA space shuttle) in the Disney feature film Unidentified Flying Oddballs (1979).
