Can you fill in the right adjective for these Perry Mason cases?

Do you know what words describe the kiss, the toupee, the mermaid and more?


Creative case names were perfected by Sherlock Holmes and Nancy Drew but Perry Mason, both the series and the original books by Erle Stanley Gardner, take the cake for sheer creativity.

Most are troublesome tongue-twisters. Try saying the title of any Perry Mason episode five times fast and see what we mean!

We’ve taken the adjectives out of 15 case names. Can you guess what word is missing from each one?

10/!5 but I cry FOUL on one of em! I could have sworn there was an episode called "The Case of The Runaway Corpse" where someone faked his death but ended up having a breakfast of bacon and eggs in a moblie trailer only to be killed there in reality by a greedy partner in the would be hoax! I'll look it up, just in case-

6/15. This quiz was titled...
The Case Of The _________ Quiz.

1. Confusing.
2. Contentious.
3. Cantankerous.

It's all three.

Every time I watch PM I get lost and confused. But at the end I can always tell who did it. Every time. It's uncanny!

12/15 - have seen each of these episodes several times so a little disappointed with the score
Same here, but I admit I tend to skip episodes with sappy "Perry Playing Cupid" endings! The only romance that intrigues me is the dance Perry and Della do with each other, which is why I love the PM T.V. movies

I love The Perry Mason show! I hoped to get them all tight!

Wow....are those real Perry Mason cases? I watch all the time....evidently I don't pay attention like I thought I did.

Is typecast T or F? The actors who portrayed iconic tv characters such as Perry Mason, Andy Taylor, Archie Bunker & Jed Clampet all went on to another successful long-running tv series. Remember their series?

10/15 Not bad but thought I'd do better considering how much I've watched it.
