I remember this from a presentation at an Anime con back in the early 2000's. Someone wrote a thesis proposing that magical girl anime and manga comes from the Japanese importation and dubbing of "I Dream of Jeanie" and "Bewitched." That's also where the "Overly Long Expository Titles Including Extra Detail" come from. The production companies would give dubbed shows such titles to overcome cultural barriers.
