How well do you know the opening credits of Perry Mason?

The classic courtroom drama had many different versions of its intro.

Television shows from the Fifties and Sixties were not afraid to completely change their opening credits sequences to keep things fresh and new. Some changed when they switched to color, others to accommodate new cast members. Sometimes they changed just for the heck of it!

The classic legal drama Perry Mason went through numerous intros during its nine seasons on the air. The iconic theme music stayed but the action onscreen changed depending on the season and episode.

During its run, when an episode was rerun, the opening credits for that season were used instead of the one from the season it originally aired. Some syndicated episodes use the “newer” credits instead of the original.

10 out of 10. Guessed on the final question, number 10. Love Perry.

The first episode of the 2nd season was a hybrid. The music behind it was from the first season, while the graphics and the order in which Della/Paul and Burger/Tragg sit was reversed. The music for the rest of the series didn't have an echo effect, and the shot was used until Talman was fired after the 1960 party.
